Daughter of a stained glass artist and a commercial real estate developer, Katie Phillips fell in love with making art at age 3. She was accepted into Otis College of Art and Design in California in 1996. Katie graduated in 2000 with a B.F.A. in Illustration. She is a full-time graphic designer and illustrator and is a co-founder of Squeeze Art Collective.
Katie's style is varied, from portraiture to surrealist, the common thread in her work is color. She works mainly in acrylics, preferring the fast-drying permanent medium to oils or watercolor. She gets inspiration from music, dreams, her environment, and other artists.
Katie is very involved in keeping Squeeze Art Collective alive and breathing. She is focused on continuing to create venues for artists to show their work and to be inspired.
