I just have to say that I am SO enjoying sharing some of my favorite artists/shop owners with you! These are some amazing people and I know you will love them and their work as much as I do.
So let’s meet our next bantam business owner! Meet Katt of Pocket Sized Observer
. I met Katt on Instagram through a mutual friend. I saw her work and thought she was super talented. I love her bright colors and adorable illustrations. I knew it fit perfectly with my love for cute things. So, we started chatting and when I decided to move forward with this feature I knew she needed to be a part of it. Please allow me to introduce you to Katt! (make sure you read all the way to the bottom for information on entering our giveaway!)
Q: Tell me a little bit about yourself?
A: I go by Katt or Katie but my real name is actually Katherina. I’m a 27-year-old girl who threw herself at the opportunity at being an entrepreneur and her own girl boss. I love art, cosplay, music, anime, a good book, Disney, hiking, travelling, delicious food, fashion, dance, kawaii (basically all things cute) and photography. I live with my boyfriend and cat in Kitchener, Ontario. I am fiercely passionate about animals, protecting wildlife and the environment. I really want to “be the change” and make a positive difference on this planet, while I’m here. I’ll soon be starting up a secret project, “project action” which will be a part of my Etsy shop so stay tuned :).
Q: How did you get started with your business?
A: I started out by making moleskine journals for a Christmas bazaar that my mom’s work was hosting a couple years back. At the time, I was going through some personal issues and had found solace in art and was doing it on the side. I got into making necklaces and art prints soon after and now, I’m happy to say that it’s my full-time job.
Q: What has been most rewarding about owning your business?
A: There are so many things I find rewarding about owning my own business. Yes, it is difficult and it is a lot of work but I love the freedom and creativity of it. I was not built for a 9-5-office job!
Q: What is your favorite part of making your products?
A: I find coming up with ideas to be one of my favourite parts when making my products… that, and the actual creating process, as well. I love how endless the imagination is and how creative you can get.
Q: When not making adorable illustrations, how do you spend your time?
A: In my spare time; you can find me spending time with family and friends, binge watching all the anime, writing, playing video games, sometimes modelling, cosplaying, travelling when I can and gardening in the spring and summer seasons. To be honest, one of my favorite ways of spending my time is just being with my boyfriend and super tiny, and adorable feline, Alice. They are two of my hugest inspirations.
Q: What is your favorite dessert?
A: My favorite dessert… hmm… it has to be a tie between crème brulee and cheesecake. Ice cream follows shortly after! Thinking about this is making me hungry, haha.
