If you’ve followed me long enough, you may already know her. This is Katrina, my friend who lives in Texas.

She happens to be an incredible artist. She also happens to have insane air hockey skills. I am not even kidding about that.

And it’s her birthday today.

Katrina works mainly in fabric but lately she’s been wowing everyone with her stunning acrylic paintings. Like this moment from Spain where we met for the first time in person.

Or how about this piece which she painted right when I needed to pause and choose a direction? It’s just incredible. (Yes, I feel like she paints for me. I know a lot of people feel that way about her work too.)

Katrina paints moments and feelings in ways that make me catch my breath because my heart is so full. But she doesn’t just paint, she includes the story with her art. Each piece has something special to go with it. A moment. A memory. A desire. All turned into something powerful and visual.

Katrina also makes wearable art like purses and I’ll admit I own a few and have gifted a few.

Every day she sends out an email filled with her latest art and other things. I look forward to taking a moment to read them because they always brighten my morning.

She also does daily videos on Facebook where you can see more about her art, and get to know her as a person.

I think Katrina’s art and her shining personality need to be seen by more people. What I’d like to see today is all of you hopping on over to her site and checking out her work. I’d love to see you sign up for her emails which are so worth it. And I’d really love to see you share her work with your friends.

If you don’t already know Katrina and her art, trust me when I say you’re missing something big. And you can fix that right now.

Happy birthday, my friend! So much love to you.

PS I am gonna beat you at air hockey again. I’ve been practicing and it won’t take 17 games next time!!
