Kathy Davis – Art and Soul

My 7 Simple Secrets to Success

Kathy Davis – Scatter Joy

A Kathy Davis take on the trends of the moment.By Valerie

Ever since we celebrated Earth Day last week, I’ve been feeling a little more green than usual. So now seems like the perfect time to share this eco-friendly produce bag designed by Harvest Haversack. It always feels good to make earth-conscious choices, especially when they’re as fun as carrying this reusable tote! Don’t you think some of Kathy’s veggie prints would look cute on a product like this?



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.


A long time member of the KDS “family” (and Kathy’s daughter), Katie Davis joined the team full-time in 2011 after graduating with a degree in Photography from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. When she is not busy designing and photographing for KDS, you can find her eating lots of veggies, rolling in the grass with her dog, Abie, and planning her upcoming wedding.


Fresh out of school, I joined the design team in 2011. Like many of Kathy’s bright designs – my personal style guide has always been that a little pop of color fun can go a long way to bring joy to our everyday lives. From my own closet filled with accessories to even my car- a bright orange VW bug- a colorful outlook is one I strive to live by. From time to time, I would love to give you a view of the KDS world through the eyes of one of it’s designers, and share some of my thoughts on recent trends in style, design, and one of my favorite past times… retail therapy, a.k.a.—shopping.

How long have you been married? Married since 1995 – …18 years

Tip: You’re wife is usually right more times than wrong – so think about that before starting an argument. Choose your battles carefully – and most battles aren’t worth fighting for anyway.   

Also, if you can – have separate bathrooms -you might use more water, but probably saves the marriage in the long run!

Join us in the Scatter Joy Gallery for our group art show! The theme for this show is “April Showers Bring May Flowers”. Enjoy light refreshments and the variety of artwork created by some of our staff from 5pm-7pm this Friday, April 26th. Hope to see you there!
