Pennsylvania native Kathy Hatch is a nationally recognized artist, known for her beautiful floral and garden paintings. Kathy translates her love of gardening into imaginative and beautiful forms of art, and her hand-painted designs have been marketed on a variety of decorative accessories, flags, and garden products since 1997.
In 1996 Kathy's remarkable talent was discovered at a regional craft show near Cincinnati, Ohio. At that time Kathy was working as a full-time consultant in the electric utility industry. Painting and crafting, as well as gardening, had always been her hobbies, but she had only dared to dream that she could successfully translate these passions into an exciting new career.
Kathy Hatch Designs, Inc. was formed in 2000 and today Kathy and her husband Michael work together in their new business. Kathy designs and paints, while her husband builds the wood prototype products sent to manufacturers for production, along with design graphic work to support their various giftware contracts. Always pursuing new creative interests, they have recently expanded their business to include Saltbox Candles, where they design and manufacture unique filled candles and candle tarts in their home which they sell at local shops.
