Check out Katie Robinette’s Artwork

Today we’d like to introduce you to Katie Robinette.

Katie, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
My love of succulents started many years ago when my Mom introduced me to these resilient plants.

One year at Christmastime, I wanted to make gifts for friends and something I could take to parties but didn’t want to bake any more sweets. I wanted to make something that I really enjoy creating so I started making succulent arrangements as holiday gifts and people loved them! And they lasted longer than Christmas cookies.

I kept creating arrangements for friends because I just love making them so much and I wanted to share that joy with others so I started SUCCS FOR YOU LA.

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I make custom succulent arrangements. It gives me so much joy to create them: to be outside, away from screens, my hands designing something and seeing the beauty of each succulent coming together to make the overall arrangement.

My hope is that these arrangements bring joy and life not just into the room but to the people who receive them. Through my customers, I’ve been able to share in people’s celebrations – their anniversaries, weddings, baby showers, and special occasions. It’s a special thing to be able to share in that joy and add to it. Plus the name, SUCCS FOR YOU LA, always gets a smile and a laugh, which makes the whole thing more fun.

What do you think it takes to be successful as an artist?
I remind myself not just of the business side and day to day tasks, but the enjoyment of creating and why I started doing this in the first place.

So I keep the reason I started – the joy of creating succulent arrangements and spreading that joy to others – in focus.

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
You can find me at various farmers’ markets and craft shows around Los Angeles and 24/7 at https://www.succsforyoula.com.
