Katie is the Founder of HaitianArt.com, a Boca Raton company which began in 1989 as a small art studio.

  1. Good for Michael Liss. I’m a fan. I believe that a collaborative approach is exactly what we need to enhance what we have. It’s about building experiences, relationships and community…along with placemaking.
