About me

Occupation Artist/Designer

Introduction My name is Katy Kristin. My hero is Pippi Longstocking. Even though I collect too much stuff for my own good, I'm inspired to create still more stuff: whimsical dolls and plushies, art, jewelry, clothes and more. I think I believe in Bigfoot, but I only kinda think I believe in Nessie. Someday I hope to live in a treehouse - a BIG treehouse.
