Kathy Davis has always loved art. Having a career in a creative field has been a life-long dream. As a child, Kathy enjoyed making all sorts of things. She still has an early set of her own brand of paper dolls as well as stories she wrote and illustrated. An entrepreneur from an early age, she and a friend started a "business" making and selling perfume to friends and neighbors, while only in the second grade. All through school, art class was her favorite. She decided to pursue an education degree with an emphasis on art. She spent ten years as a teacher of Art and English with students from all ages from kindergarten to adults. Inspired by her students' work, she decided it was time to test her own "creative wings." After taking a break from teaching for motherhood, she continued her study of painting, calligraphy and design.
Beginning her own company in 1990, Kathy launched several lines of greeting cards with various publishers. Her ability to scatter joy by using expressive art and thoughtful sentiment has captured today's consumer. Starting out with a small drawing table in the corner of her bedroom, she has grown to become one of the industry's most respected talents.
