{ Featured Artist - Out on a Whim Studio }

{ About the Artist }

My name is Kathi Robinaugh and I am an altered artist, primitive crafter, junker, scrapbooker, wife and mother, not necessarily in that order! I have been married to Darin for 22 years, we have 4 sons, Jason 20, Jordy 17, Brody 15 and Trace 8. Darin owns a private ambulance service and I work there part-time as finance manager. We live in West Liberty, Ohio, the small town where I grew up. I have been "making things" since childhood, and began to sell my work in 1991. I have done everything from painting ceramics and wood, to sewing and stitching, and now am all about altered art! I have sold my work in shops, done some wholesale, and designed for the gift industry. I am now focusing on selling online, on etsy and ebay, and am a member of the Shabby Cottage Studio Design Team and the Lazy Day Creations Design Team. I have done projects for Country Marketplace and Merchantile Gatherings magazines, and my work has appeared on the cover of the Ohio Country Register.
I love anything old or retro looking, everything from a shabby "pink" palette, primitive browns and black, to happy aquas and reds! I enjoy taking old things and giving them a new life and purpose, or just taking a stack of papers and trims, and turning them into something unique!
