Katie Kime always knew she was going to be an artist—she was making clay pots at seven and drawing Van Gogh cutting off his ear at nine. Plus, creativity runs in the family: Her mom’s a painter, and her dad’s a woodworker. Even still, it wasn’t until college that being a creator really struck her as a viable career option. In 2006, at the end of her senior year at Duke University, Katie put together a trunk show of the random things she’d made over the years—frames constructed from old library books, custom-printed paper, refurbished antique furniture. The response was, in a word, overwhelming.
