Illustrator Katie Daisy was raised among the wildflowers and grew up with a deep appreciation for the natural world. This love for warm breezes, feathered friends, and green meadows has stayed with her into adulthood, and she infuses the same liveliness and vibrant colors into everything she creates.
Daisy pairs the great outdoors with short quotes and mantras to inspire our everyday lives—even if you’re stuck inside for most of the day. She surrounds hand-lettered phrases by late-greats Oscar Wilde, Monet, and Eleanor Roosevelt with gorgeous painted floral wreaths. Together, they communicate sentiments of hope and love while offering a powerful reminder to be our true selves.
Daisy sells her charming works in The Wheatfield, her popular Etsy shop. In addition to prints, note cards, and magnets, she’s also an author. Her book How to Be a Wildflower encourages self-discovery through nature, and it’s sparked creativity in readers across the globe. Now in its fourth printing, the New York Times Bestseller is available on Amazon.
