The concept was inspired by her daughter Florence. Strong, fearless, outgoing, and with a comedic edge to challenge the best onstage performers, Florence also has down’s syndrome. Florence is the reason Katie began creating bespoke prints, knowing that life should be about championing our differences, and honouring everything that comes from you being you.
Keen to celebrate these differences, and knowing all too well the struggle required to nail that perfect group photograph, seven years ago Katie set about drawing a picture of her own family instead. Her eldest son bedecked in his favourite football kit, her youngest son donning his adored dressing up outfit, and Florence holding her treasured doll.
Upon receiving endless compliments—and commissions from friends—from this initial family portrait Katie decided to take the next step and turn her hobby into a business, and Little Florence was born.
