First off most people call me Kat. I was born and raised in the US with two German parents, so I have citizenship for both countries. Neat huh? This is part of the reason I am currently living in Glasgow, but the States always seems to be calling my name.
I recently completed my masters degree in Creative Advertising in Edinburgh. But I began with doing my undergrad in Germanic Languages and Literatures at Washington University in St. Louis, but I minored in art and always was in love with it. Along with art I also minored in anthropology.
I have always been painting and drawing whether it was finger paint or charcoal. Then in high school I got Creative Suite 2 for my birthday and taught myself how to use it.
So my thought process on getting to advertising is a simple one:
PEOPLE + ART = ADVERTISING
Although it sounds simple, it took some time for me to get there. Luckily my love for creating along with my research into the study of people from my undergrad and masters made advertising the perfect fit.
