Introduction to Katie O

Gorgeous Touch

As a business that appeals to most we are often contacted by local crafts people to see if we would like to sell their homemade and handmade goodies. On some occasions we come across a little gem and instead of keeping this little gem a secret we thought it would be great idea for her to tell you about herself.

Love What You Do by Doing What You Love

Imagine you could be granted one wish, to be given the opportunity to work in the best job ever. What’s the most exciting job you could imagine doing? For me, it’s being an artist. Ever since I was a young girl I have always wanted to find a way to use my artistic skills to make beautiful items that people will love to have in their homes.

After many years of hard work…

Amazing and inspiring work by Andrew Ferez. Thanks to SheWalksSoftly for sharing 🙂


Andrew Ferez is responsible for two pieces I’ve loved for quite a while without knowing the artist. Aren’t these first two really spectacular?



His work reminds me a bit of Jacek Yerka with its fine details and blending of architecture, human invention and nature.

Many of his creations seem to contain a prominent fire element; a bit of burning chaos and/or illumination.

I’d like a a bumper sticker of this painting that says MY OTHER CAR IS A TALONED FISH SAXOPHONE WITH WHEELS.

Last Night I dreamt Somebody loved me

Another chance to read the story behind the monster…

Katie O Art - Handmade Gifts, Decorations and Artwork

Hello World ♥

Most of you will know this work but not many know the story behind this portrait of a lonely soul.

From a time when trees touched the skies and the moon kept a watchful eye over the world; there lived a beast…

Many creatures inhabited this strange world but this was no ordinary creature, it was in the deep forest thousands of years ago where this soul first came to life.  With the force to rip a hole in the earth with one swoop the beast held such strength and power. However for all his might the beast suffered intensely from a great loneliness. Such a feeling swept over the beast like a vast plague, he was hopeless to it.

Art by Katie O

The only escape he found from such pain was to dream, dream so deeply into the night of love and happiness, something he feared he would never attain. The beast fell into a deep sleep every night…

Hello World! 🙂

Each week I’ll be blogging about the retailers and shops that stock Katie O Art products, giving you an insight into what I sell in each store and where you can find them 🙂

First up is gift shop at The Coventry Transport Museum. It was in January last year when I first sold my work here and was one of the first retailers to stock my range of vintage handmade gifts.

The Field…

Hello World,

Here’s another chance to the read the story of the field written by my father, that inspired my work 🙂

I walked down to the field
That hides beyond our house

I often take our hedgehog
And sometimes take the mouse

drawings by katie o

There’s tons of unwanted rubbish
That’s home to many rats

An old eccentric lady
Who looks after eight black cats

There’s a retired farmer
His friend a retired pig

A circus owner with a lion
Plus an elephant that’s too big

There is a tiny fish pond
That’s full of sharks and whales

drawings by katie o

Two dromedary camels
Who like to swish their tales

There’s lots of awful insects
And giant dive bomb flies

drawings by katie o

I enjoy the wildlife down the field
But I must stop telling lies
