My name is Kat Martin. I am originally from Seattle, Washington but now I live in San Francisco, California in a house full of excitement, dance parties, and bad TV show marathons. I like to draw, paint, and craft, and am constantly looking for new and unique ways to expand my skills. I love the ocean and everything in and on it. Most of what I paint has to do with the sea: usually ships, sailors, and creatures of the deep.

I like to take photos, and I mainly use my trusty ol' Canon Rebel XS DSLR for everything. It's my first DSLR and I'm still learning the ropes, but since I purchased it a few years ago it has gotten TONS of use, including climbing over castles in Ireland and walking the streets of Paris. Not to mention tons of trips to the beach.

My other interests include history (I'm always reading about something or someone obscure from the past), music (mostly folky and indie bands) and gardening.
