Hello! I’m Katy.
I am a singer, teacher, and creative located in Maui, Hawaii.
I grew up in a rural farming community, surrounded by the Idaho wine country and Owyhee Mountains. A quiet creative, I could be found daydreaming with my cats in my mother’s garden or redesigning our family living room.
As a dancer I found contentment of my desire for artistic expression and self-discipline. The technique I studied for years at the ballet barre permeated my every fiber. I craved intricacy, musicality and grace down to a science.
Through singing I found my flair — a cultivation of song that welled up inside me. I was enamored by the finesse of the art form and vastly blessed by the musical mentors who emboldened me to pursue my passion. I seized opportunities to fuel my ambitions: performing as a studio recording artist, singing leading musical theatre and opera roles, and earning my degree in vocal performance.
As a teacher of singing and lifelong learner, I find it imperative to continually improve myself and grow for my students’ enrichment. I believe the best lesson that can be taught is how to take initiative over your own education.
Today I tackle new creative pursuits with aim to discover my voice through writing. I am slowly learning to let go of tightly-held perfectionism and sing outside of my comfort zone. I started my blog to share this exploration and connect with other artists. I invite you to join me in this vulnerable, but exciting journey!
I am a military spouse to my husband, Zack. We enjoy hiking, gardening, trying new restaurants and baking together. Our fur-baby, Rosie, is the center of our life.
