Katie Fowler | Creative Wonderland: the Looking Glass and the Rabbit Hole

katie-revFEBRUARY 20, 2017

Come join Katie Fowler in a meaningful and lighthearted look at the creative process, creative blocks and effective tools for mastering creative momentum.  You will leave feeling validated, courageous and ready to follow the white rabbit to creative adventure.

Katie Fowler – a Creative Life Coach – is a lifelong teacher and facilitator. Her goal is to help each of us find our greatest creative potential.  She knows the questions to ask so that we can find our unique creative joy!

From the Home page on her website, Katie says this about herself:

“I am a professional educator / artist, author, speaker, and certified creativity coach.  I know Creativity…  She and I have a lifelong relationship.  I live with my husband in our recently empty nest near the foothills of Colorado.  When I’m not being creative, talking about creativity, or writing about creativity, I enjoy cycling, snow skiing, reading, and laughing!

I am an art quilter. That’s a dangerous thing to say in the art world. People often respond, “Oh, my Great Aunt Whozee made quilts.” My pieces are not bed coverings. They are personal and meaningful expressions of who I am and my interpretation of the world around me.  I love to bend the rules of traditional quilting and create with courage.”

angieMARCH 20, 2017

Angie’s passion for creating art was ignited at age 10 with 4-H projects for the Iowa State Fair.  A prize winning quilt block and Indian corn collage sealed her fate and propelled her to a very colorful and creative career.

Angie has designed for Sticks Furniture, Fresh Produce Sportswear, Nordstrom, Better Homes & Gardens, Hope Hummus and Whole Foods Markets.

“Nesting and My Mad Desire to Make” is Angie’s story of the evolution and adaption of her art and fiber work through motherhood, illness and life changing events.
