Love is in the Art
Original Textile Inspire Art * Hand Designed
Katrina Gorman – Artist Statement
Ever think about what you would do if you won the multi-million dollar lottery? If I could live in luxury for the rest of my days or even if I lost everything I had and lived on the streets, I would continue my heart’s desire of creating beautiful fabric art.
These creations can best be described with the phrase, “love is in the art,” because I pour my heart and soul into telling a story that inspires me from life and all its experiences, but also use nature and its vast beauty, in an applique style. My mind has a unique manner of visualizing colorful designs as it sees the world. Once I have visualized this design, I transfer it to fabric and continue to develop and refine the sketches until various fabric textures, colors, and designs practically jump out at me and I am able to bring to life the realization of my creative vision.
As I continue my journey creating fabric art, I continue to spread my wings, expand and try new concepts. There is so much more to come as my mind continues to see and explore new mediums, new ideas, and move towards new horizons.
I invite you to view the previous art shows and media attention Katrina Gorman Designs has been apart of, and please feel free to tell your friends and family about us!
Everything we do is made in love, and that is why our slogan is "Love is in the Art".

A Special Thank You!
Thank you Ma, Deit and Rae for believing in me long before I did and continuing to be my most treasured and loyal supporters. Thank you, Divine Spirit, for using me as a channel to express your love. And thank you life for all those lessons in which has made me so inspired to become everything I know I can be.
May the Blessings Be!
This is the very first piece that I made for my own home. I wanted something that signified the strength and beauty of what I'm on my journey to be and this is why I still use this design called "Open Arms". The womans arms are stretched out as far as she can reach because that is the amount of love that I have to give.
I was so proud when I had this picture taken. I was in my very first big quilt festival in Chicago at the International Quilt Festival. There were hundreds of fabric and jewlry artists there and people were so amazed at the art I did. I was so happy to have a badge with VENDOR on it, I didn't know what to do!
This piece is apart of he Masterpiece Collection and was sold a couple years ago. It was one of my favorites because I always imagined what it would be like to have children but then when another child comes along alot can change for everyone. It is titled "Your Still My Girl."
This piece is the very first piece I sold in the Masterpiece Collection called "A Day at the Ballet." It was hard to sell for the sentimental reasons.. When you work on something it becomes apart of you. Remembering back when I was younger, all I wanted to do was to be a ballerina and when my mom took me to ballet class or my sister took us to the play called "The Nutcracker," I dreamed of dancing the night away!
This was the very first Katrina Gorman Designs Holiday Art Show and Sale in my home! People filtered in and out all afternoon while they dined on sugar cookies and gazed at my art. It was a great day!
I was apart of an exhibit at Artlink called, "Growing Up in Indiana" where I made scenes of my favorite spots around town. When long and behold, my art teacher from Northrop High was in the same exhibit I was in! We both thought that was one for the history books! It was a evening I'll never forget!
