Katherine is a native North Carolinian from the mountains of Southern Appalachia.  She grew up surrounded by a rich heritage of fine crafts which she has explored extensively.  Mountains have always provided a special inspiration for her, especially in her creative endeavors.  After nearly 20 years in "Corporate America", Katherine found a home for pursuing her love of crafts in the Catskill Mountains where she lives with her husband, Sonny (a NYState Licensed Outdoor Guide) and their cat, Gizmo.

Katherine is a member of The Artisans's Guild on Main Street, Oneonta, NY and Cooper Country Crafts just outside Doubleday Field in Cooperstown, NY.  Her candles can be purchased year-round in the Guild stores.  She also shows at events and farm markets in NY and surrounding areas.  Katherine is also a member of "Pure Catskills" recognizing her candles are made from Catskills area beeswax and "Made in New York", a group of artists from all around New York.
