South Carolina native Katie Monzel is a self-taught artist that merges her lifelong love of people, nature, and animals with a newfound love of painting. She first began painting in 2011 after joining a local art guild to find a creative outlet. Her desire to capture moments in camera clicks quickly changed to brush strokes and her love of painting was sealed. Working primarily in acrylic and watercolor mediums, she loves getting lost in the details of each piece. She lives in Mount Pleasant and loves what the coastal offerings bring to her expanding portfolio.
"The ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination, and brings eternal joy to the soul." - Wyland
In addition to the ocean, Katie adds that midnight painting sessions, two beautiful children, and one playful pup are the perfect mixture to keeping her happy.
