Kate O’Brien, an Ohio native currently based in Idaho, is the artist behind Neatline Designs. Neatline is a graphics and illustration experimentation that was born from staff meeting doodles.  Kate is a middle school art teacher and mixed media artist with a focus on radial designs and environmental issues. She is a weekend warrior who can be found climbing on mountains and swimming in rivers, always with a sketchbook nearby.  In her intricate mandala designs Kate deeply examines the experiences and feelings she encounters while exploring the world. The designs are inspired by observations in nature and a sense of place. The patterns capture the simple, organic, and geometric lines of the natural world. Surrounded by endless inspiration she is constantly growing and evolving her artistic practice.
