Katie Rodgers is a phenomenal artist that I found through Facebook. Her art work and shadow dancer paintings are flawless. Katie first began her company Paper Fashion in 2009. With her determination to show the world her talent through watercolors, Katie has become a well known artist in the industry. Currently living in New York City, Katie has worked with companies in the fashion industry such as Cartier, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Valentino, Swarovski, Clé de Peau, Kate Spade, Coach, Alicia Keys, Calypso St. Barths, Stuart Weitzman, Parker Pens, Lacoste, Elle, and Glamour Magazine. This information and more about her life growing up with water colors can all be found at her website Paper Fashion About Katie.

I first feel in love with Katie's shadow dancers after I began seeing them show up on my news feed on Facebook, which is when I began following her page. Everyday I see new work of beautiful and colorful shadow dancers. This week Katie uploaded a magnificent portrait of Lupita Nyongo wearing Elie Saab on the red carpet. She has inspired young artists to follow their dreams.

Rodgers' website includes videos of her paintings, great books to buy for an illustrator and for fashion. Paper Fashion also has a store where merchandise can be purchased including, iPhone cases, calendars, paintings and more. Katie also has videos for online classes in learning to paint with Paper Fashion.

Katie has hugely inspired me, through her work and passion, to take a class in fashion drawing. I am enrolled this semester with the Academy of Art University and cannot wait to learn new techniques and skills to be able to create my very own fashion drawings and paintings. If you have not had the chance to visits Paper Fashion's website please do so. I have added the links to her website, Facebook and shop below! You will be inspired!
