Katy serves as Director of Huntington Arts & Entrepreneurial Center and has been working professionally in the art field since 2007. Like many other creatives, Katy has practiced and enjoyed art from a very young age and considered herself an artist long before receiving a bachelor’s degree in fine arts. Today she invests time into developing and helping artists find opportunities in the creative world. In 2021 Katy was trained to instruct the Indiana Arts Commission’s “On-Ramp Creative Entrepreneur Course” that was held as a satellite program for the state at HAEC and several other sites in Indiana. This opportunity provided professional growth and led to an interest in holding smaller arts business workshops at HAEC. Katy has previously held many creative workshops and continues volunteering and organizing public art events.
