Katrina’s work shares themes that many can relate to. She loves deeply and enjoys wholeheartedly the people and experiences in her life. She enjoys expressing her heart in her work. “Out of the overflow of the heart a man speaks.” Matthew 12:34. That is what Katrina is doing in her work, speaking from the overflow of her heart.
