Katie Todaro

Katie Todaro is an artist from New England who recently moved to Seattle after graduating with a BFA in Digital Media and Printmaking from the University of Massachusetts Amherst to pursue her career in digital art. Todaro is drawn to the complexity of urban spaces and that significantly impacts her work. Her imagery is a compilation and abstraction of this dynamic environment---a visual stream of consciousness.

Katie loves to travel--- she strives to unbiasedly absorb anything and everything the world puts in front of her, allowing one experience lead to the next.   An avid skier she cannot wait to attack the powder of the Pacific Northwest.

­­Katie is currently an artist in residence in THE Studio at Grand Image.

THE Studio

At the center of Grand Image’s Seattle headquarters sits THE Studio, an open airy space with 20’ ceilings and skylights.  Our collective of emerging artists includes painters, fabricators and graphic artists who bring a diverse set of creative skills, creating new artworks every day.  This diversity allows us to create nearly anything imaginable from scratch and the ability to modify any of our existing images.  Guided by industry visionary Larry Winn and managed by Art Director Kate Maass, THE Studio generates scores of new original works each month.  Our creative team bring over 80 collective years of industry experience, delivering fresh imagery successfully wrapped in the Grand Image point of view.

Collaboration is KEY.

Collaboration with customers…  Collaboration among artists…  Collaboration between sales, marketing and creative… Collaboration.

The dynamic between our artists and our digital team is unique.  Working within the same space, often on the same projects, these disciplines complement each other, often times one augmenting the other.

Whatever your project requires- 3 dimensional works of wood, metal or found materials, large scale original paintings, detailed drawings or location specific photography; just bring us a color, an idea or your blank slate and we will flesh out the designs, provide you a mock-up and work within your budget and timeline.

THE Studio allows us to react quickly to customer needs and market trends.  It also provides an environment for experimentation, development and magic.
