I'm Katie Bush, a "Jill of all trades" living in San Diego, California. I am one of those people who can make or do anything! Having recently moved to SoCal, I split my projects between California and my hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. I received my BFA from Georgia State University and my MAEd from University of Georgia. While in college, I ran a blog for art teachers called The Daily Telecraft. In 2012, I published a children's book. I was named the 2015 Museum Art Educator of the Year by the Georgia Art Education Association and I have won numerous awards for my chalk art. In 2017, I received my 200 hour certification to teach yoga. I began creating chalk art/street paintings professionally in 2013, when I helped organize a chalk festival in metro Atlanta. After seeing the artists perform on the street in front of a curious audience, I signed up for a festival in Florida and the rest is history. In 2014, I co-founded the Georgia Chalk Artists Guild. In 2015, I started doing freelance work and my businesses, Atlanta Chalk Artist and San Diego Chalk Artist, were born. I do chalk art for a variety of clients: brides-to-be, private homes, birthday parties, as well as corporate clients and trade shows. Some of my clients include Delta, Chick-Fil-A, General Motors, Turner, KitchenAid, Planet Smoothie, Zinburger, Spanx, and Starbucks.
