As promised, I'm back in the saddle and ready to start a new adventure using social media!  So, thank you for bearing with me while I get the hang of it.

In the meanwhile, check out some of my new creations and tell me what you think.  Your opinion matters and helps me on my never ending journey to become a better artist.

The following are pictures of "Pour Paintings", which has become my new passion!  There are endless techniques to create this type of artwork, there will never be two pieces exactly the same and it's great fun at any age.



Classes are available by appointment and can be done almost anywhere.  Get a group of friends together and have a paint party.  You'll have lots of fun and earn some really cool stuff too!!  I love teaching these classes and have a flexible schedule in which to do so.

A Little About
You may wonder where the name "Katelf" came from.  Well, it's rather simple; it is the result of a 7th grade art project in which the assignment was to come up with a name to sign to ones artwork.  Using the nickname of "Kate" and adding "l" "f" to represent the remaining letters of my full name, "Katelf" had arrived and the name has been used in my artwork ever since.
I, "Katelf" have been in the Lodi area for the past 35 years.  In that time, pyrography, (the art of burning), jewelry making, gourd art and nature-oriented originals have been my focus and medium of choice.  My goal has always been to be different than everyone else, which was the reason for choosing Pyrography.  However, there are so many techniques to explore yet, that I am bursting at the seams to try them   

You may have seen some "Katelf" artwork at one of various art and craft shows held around Wisconsin.  In addition to woodburned originals and decorative gourds, Katelf sells gourd birdhouses, luminaries, dream catchers, woodburned jewelry, wind chimes, decorative signs and recycled artwork.
There are other items such as; painted saw blades, wool mittens, various types of bird houses, prints, handmade and many other unique gift ideas at the Shop & Studio known as... 

The studio is located south of Lodi, Wisconsin, nestled in the country on Coyle Rd., just off of Highway 113 between Lodi and Dane.   Follow the signs up Coyle Rd. which will direct you right to the door.  

If you enjoy a friendly country atmosphere, this is the place for you.  Please see map to Katelf Family & Friends Shop and Studio for the exact location.    
Currently, the studio features the wonderful artwork of family members and friends; there is a great deal of talent and variety here, plus prices are reasonable with many ever-changing gift items available. 
We're also offering workshops so that you can learn some of the techniques we use for creating our arts and crafts.  Check out videos of the studio and some of the previous workshops:  See our YouTube Channel  More to come.....
