Katie's family moved to Boca Raton in 1970 where she later attended Palm Beach Community College and FAU. Katie is the Founder of, a Boca Raton company which began in 1989 as a small art studio. Works by Haiti’s artists soon became part of a revolving exhibit at City Hall as well as the Boca Raton Library and Community Center. The gallery later moved to Delray Beach and broadened its base to include works by Eastern Cuban artists and Florida Highwaymen. Today her focus is on art consulting and internet art sales. She is on the board of the A.C.T.I.O.N. Foundation, a non-profit organization whose goal is to foster harmony between the Caribbean community and the United States, and currently serves as the Vice President of the Riviera Civic Association.


  1. I have watched Ms Fitzsimmons presentation evolve from the beginning and couldn’t be more impressed. I also know that she has given time and effort selflessly. I am so thankful that she chose Boca Raton as her new home. What a terrific asset for our community. Keep up the great work Margaret! The community is behind you.

  2. She said nothing interesting in 20 minutes.

    She sounds like a huge politician.

    How about just copy Delray and create a great community — like Atlantic Avenue? More business. More eateries. Great beach.

  3. No Tom, she is not a politician just a concerned resident that thinks this and past city councils are destroying our city with anything goes in developments. Thank god we just got rid a former council member named Mullauh who when he voted to put in THE MARK downtown said lets put some more up and see what they look like and put in more. Renderings showed retail and restaurants, etc. Nothing now just a hair place. Developers and politicians are lying to us . Delray is creating a great community. You know the height limit is 5 stories up there and ours is 16 stories with little parking and no restaurants. Royal Palm is coming in with 5 buildings. This will be interesting to see how many restaurants. Take my word since little parking very few. Trust me on a saturday night downtown boca will be empty and delray packed. And now the developers want to steal Mizner Park for condos. Just a rumor. Not. True. Don’t get me started on the beaches Tom. Margaret is trying to help and you pontificate crap. How are you helping Tom.
