Katy Alderman, a Tampa native, embarked upon painting with a focus on friends, family and festivities. Think having fun, letting your hair down and not taking yourself too seriously.
An avid art lover, Katy picked up a paintbrush after attending and promoting local art events around town. She is actively involved in the community and has chaired several fundraising events benefiting charitable organizations such as the Tampa Museum of Art and Metropolitan Ministries, among others.
Katy's art has been featured on Morning Around the Bay as well as in the Tampa Tribune and Tampa Bay Illustrated. Katy was one of eight artists chosen to exhibit in the Big Art Show II at Tampa International Airport, April 2006 through February of 2007.
Typical customer feedback includes praises such as Virginia
Ferlita's compliment, "I have gotten so-o-o many compliments on mine. I
wouldn't think of going out at night now without it. The boring old Coach
evening purse has been retired."
"Hey Katy- Love your website and your purses are darling!!!! Keep me posted!"
