Katie's Candies

20170924

The content will vary but it will mostly be people that are inspire my work - for whatever reason. I know that a lot of the people in my social circle are artists, but I also know that a lot of you are not. And, although I try and make my work accessible to pretty much anyone, I know that there are a lot of you that look at some of my images and think "What the hell's that all about."
