Kathy Davis – spreading joy through art and licensing
Last weekend as I was working, I decided to tune into another Smart Creative Women episode featuring artist Kathy Davis. I’ve always been a fan of her work and if memory serves, she had a big, inspiring booth at the first trade show I ever did.
I loved listening to her story – and I must say, her accent! I didn’t realize she was from my neck of the woods but I recognized that Philly accent. I think she even mentioned getting her undergraduate degree at West Chester – I’m assuming she means West Chester State College or University – depending on when she went there. Wonder if she ever took Astronomy with my dad – George Reed – wouldn’t that be a small world story? (Kathy if you read this and if you did – let me know!)
I felt very connected to her story of starting her art career in the midst of a divorce and having to decide what to do… oh yes! Been there done that!
Enough about my impressions – I recommend you head over to Monica Lee’s site, Smart Creative Women and check it out yourself. When you are done – see all the other amazing interviews she has done while you are at it!
Here’s to your creative success!

P.S. One other thing Kathy, if you are reading this, I’d LOVE to have a short video of how you got your start in art licensing to add to the blog. Please let me know! Click here to see others… (oh yes – ANY artist at any level of this business is invited and encouraged to create a video too!)
