My full name is Katie Victoria Tolley, I am from Sevierville, TN. I started painting when I was 6-8 years old. I can't remember exactly, but my great-grandmother gave me an old art set that was once hers. Both of my great-grandmothers, on my mother's side of the family had been artists/painters. I remember visiting my great grandmother Greer and her house always smelled of oil paint and turpentine. Now its my house that smells.
Also when I was younger I became obsessed with horror movies. My dad always watched them and I hid behind the couch trying to watch them. I watched a lot of the Vincent Price movies since my parents were so strict I couldn't watch the real one's until I was 17. I did see a few on TV, but they were all edited. I remember when Stephen King's IT came on TV. I was completely in love with that movie. I watched it everyday had pictures of Pennywise by my bed, yet I was terrified of balloons and the bathroom.
