Hi, I’m Katie
The girl behind the grain
After a 20-year career making TV commercials, I realised I had lost the love of what I was making.
And for a maker the love is everything!
It was time to find a new way to contribute to the world. In a blind leap of faith, I enrolled in a three-year furniture making course. Before that day I had never picked up a drill.
I remember my first class – one woman amongst a sea of smelly teenage boys. At 36 I was ‘the nanna’ in the class. What was I thinking? But I kept turning up and pretty soon I was hooked.
Based on Sydney’s Northern Beaches I make furniture and homeware for design-conscious clients who share my love of modern, simple, minimalist aesthetic.
If you have a project in my I’d love to hear from you. I offer a free in-home consultation to brainstorm ideas and work out the best solution for you budget and your space.
Thank you for taking the time to visit Girl & Grain and share my journey.
