  • Katie Daisy

    A graduate of the Minneapolis College of Art & Design, Katie Daisy takes her inspiration from childhood summers spent in Northern Illinois farm country. With a wildflower-toned palette, Katie paints directly from the heart. Her pieces inspire self-discovery and liberation and have struck a chord with thousands of admirers around the world. She is delighted to be able to share her work directly with these fans through her own shop, and also via licensing for a variety of beautiful products. Katie currently resides in the Pacific Northwest with her two cats, Basil and Clementine.

    WP: Your work is so filled with positivity and sunshine! What do you use as inspiration?

    KD: I’m inspired by so many things! I grew up on a farm in Northern Illinois, so anything that brings me back to my rural roots is key. I’m inspired by creek swimming, abandoned farmhouses, barn kittens, wildflower meadows, canoe trips that creep into the night, cat tails, hummingbirds, warm summer rain, and wearing a breezy cotton dress.

    WP: When did you know that you wanted to be an artist?

    KD: I feel that I’ve always been an artist. When I was tiny, I used to draw on placemats and napkins in restaurants. My mom would come prepared with crayons & pens in her purse. My parents nurtured my creativity at a very young age and made sure I knew that ANY dream was attainable. I owe so much to my beautiful and encouraging parents.

    WP: If you could collab with any artist from any time, who would it be and why?

    KD: Frida Kahlo! I absolutely love Frida’s color palette, subject matter, and love of the natural world. I also admire her complete authenticity. Frida was fearless in her art and much of her life. Although she suffered from tremendous pain, she was still able to see beauty and live a life of passion. I suspect that we would set up our easels in her Casa Azul garden, while the monkeys scampered and birds fluttered around us. We’d drink horchata and dish on Diego.

    WP: What is your go-to method of creating? Drawing, watercolor, acrylic, etc.? What is your process?

    KD: I always use watercolor and acrylic paint when creating. I find this combination flexible enough that I can achieve both transparency and bold, velvety textures. Whenever I feel the urge coming on to create, nothing will stop me. I spend a good amount of time pouring inspiration: whether in photos, a particular song, or meditation, and recalling fond memories of the many experiences I’ve been blessed to have. Next, I’ll sketch out an idea and start painting. At this point I’ll already have so much bubbling up inside me that it seems the work is finished before it even begins. It’s a very intuitive process.

    WP: Where is your favorite place that you have traveled

    KD: I LOVE Big Sur! There is such a wild beauty that exists on this 90 mile stretch of land.  I recall a time where I sat on the enormous cliffs and watched the turquoise blue tide come in and out. It was pure magic. It’s hard to pick just one place, though. I also have a deep connection to The Blue Ridge Mountains, the Illinois Prairie, and Northeastern Iowa along the Mississippi River.

    WP: Where do you want to go next?

    KD: I’d love to go to Ireland or Italy, the lands where my ancestors are from. I’ve never been out of the country and know that when I do finally venture out, worlds of inspiration will be uncovered.

    WP: Describe yourself in 5 words.

    KD: Nurturing, light-hearted, optimistic, breezy, & catlady.

    WP: What’s your favorite color?

    KD: Right now? A bright, summer’s day yellow with a gentle breeze.

    WP: Would you rather go to space or explore the ocean?

    KD: The ocean, for sure! I’d love to swim around and talk to whales, jellyfish & other critters that are still unknown.

  • Going Green - 5 Easy Ways For The Whole Family

    When you hear the term “going green” it doesn’t just mean turning off the lights or water when you’re not using them … those things are important though! They are great ways to save energy and conserve resources, but going green is about much more than that – and it’s really good for you!

    Going green leads to a healthier lifestyle and a cleaner environment, plus, it saves you money and is important for your children’s futures too. There are so many ways we can contribute, with very little time and effort!

    That’s why Wheatpaste has put together a list of 5 simple ways your family can be a part of the solution and GO GREEN:  

    1.   RECYCLE & REUSE

    Okay, this is by far the most well-known way to be environmentally-friendly and yet, an estimated ¼ of Americans don’t recycle! There are so many reasons to recycle and we can ALL make a difference ... a little recycling can be a BIG help!

    Why should you recycle?

    Not only does recycling Save Energy, Reduce Landfills, Preserve our Resources, and Protect our Wildlife … it is Good for the Economy and Helps our Climate Problems too!

    Did you know?

    If every American recycled just 1/10 of their newspapers, we could save about 25 MILLION trees each year!

    NOW’s the time – know the facts and get inspired to do something today!

    It will be good for you, trust us. And future generations will thank you.

      2.   COMPOST TO MAKE THE MOST

    What is compost?

    Compost is made up of decomposed organic material. It’s great for improving the soil in your garden and it helps the environment too!

    Here’s the basic idea behind compost …

    Instead of just throwing away and wasting things like grass clippings, weeds, leftover fruit, and kitchen scraps – you can literally “turn” them into something useful and help minimize the amount of trash being dumped back into the environment!

    Despite what you may have heard about composting, it’s a lot easier than you think. We can even do it from our own backyards!

    Get the 411 on compost – how to start your own, the uses and benefits, and everything in between!

    3.   SHOP & SHOW SUPPORT

    Shopping local is probably the easiest way to go green, and definitely one of the most important. You have to go shopping anyway, right? Just choose locally owned businesses instead of big corporations for your shopping needs ... and that’s all there is to it!

    Supporting locally owned businesses benefits you, your community, the environment, and the economy in more ways than one.

    So see what stores are locally owned in your area and get shopping!

      4.   CSA - ALL THE WAY

    What is CSA?

    CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture – a concept that has become increasingly popular over the past 25 years or so, and with good reason!

    CSA is a super smart way to buy fresh, seasonal food AND support your local farmers.

    Produce is most commonly offered by CSAs, but that’s not the only thing available! Some farmers include other options, such as:

    • Eggs

    • Homemade Bread

    • Meat

    • Cheese

    • Fruit

    • Flowers

    It’s a win-win for everyone involved! And it’s easy! You can sign-up online in just a few clicks to get the freshest foods and most vitamin-rich produce for you and your family.

    Search and sign-up for a CSA near you, or find and visit your local farmer’s market to show your support.

      5.   KEEP IT AMERICAN

    Ohhh saaaay caaan yooou seeeeee…!
    (I won’t sing the whole song for you, but you get the point.)

    We LOVE America!!! 

    And one way you can help support America is by buying products that are Made in America!

    When you buy American-made products, you are not only giving back to a country that stands for freedom – you are helping America’s economy grow.

    There are so many reasons to buy American and tons of ways it can benefit you!

    That’s why Wheatpaste Art Collective is the perfect way for you and your family to show support and start going green together!
