About Katy Jo
Katy Jo was born in rural Michigan near the shores of Lake Huron.
Her childhood was filled with hours of exploring the beaches of the Great Lake or near cool amber streams lined with birch and fern laden woods.
Winters were long and serene. Some of her fondest memories are of those winter days, enjoying the snow or relaxing next to the home's fireplace.
Katy Jo is a self taught artist who creates her paintings in oils. Through her journey as an artist she received some wise advise along the way.
"Nature is the teacher and to paint it one must touch, smell, listen, and learn."
Step onto her beautiful property in Preble County and be amazed by her numerous beautiful gardens and you get a glimpse of the appreciation of nature that Katy Jo carries not only in her heart but that pours out of her paintings.
She believes art should not only add color and interest to the walls, it must also instill a sense of serenity and calmness, and inspire hope and peace.
Katy Jo and her husband Alan, lives in rural Southwest Ohio near the
Great Miami River which brings never ending inspiration.
