As far back as I can remember, I’ve been surrounded by my father’s paintings, sketches, and drawings. His encouragement influenced my development and I became more serious in my artistic endeavors. I grew to develop my own unique style by experiencing the diversity that life offers through travel and exposure to multiple cultures. Initially an oil painter, I was gradually drawn toward the bold and clean graphics seen on vintage signage and posters which led me to the art form of screen printing. This form of artistic expression is the perfect media to bring my dreams and fantasy worlds into reality for others to experience on a daily basis. The versatility and simplicity of screen printing allows for the fusion of my original designs and vintage up-cycled apparel to transform them together into wearable art. SaltKat will continue to evolve with my mission to express messages of authenticity to oneself and to simply live Wild and Free.
