 Addison County resident Kate Martin did not start out as a design artist, but has come to love her new vocation. With prices ranging from $ 10.00 for a children’s d-ring belt to $ 20.00 for a woman’s ribbon belt, Martin’s designs are on display on her Facebook page. “Kate Martin Design.” Getting lost in designs and colors is one of her favorite pastimes, and Martin’s designs are a mixture of whimsy and humor. “The combinations are endless,” remarked Martin. Not only making belts for sale, Martin also takes custom orders.
     A counselor by trade, Martin finds her inspirations in nature and simple events in life.  Seeking to create pieces that are designed with love and for individuals, Martin’s work ranges from a homey comfortable approach to bold color combinations that draw your eyes and create images in your mind of snow and ice, dogs snoring away by a fire, young girls at play, a batch of sugar cookies, a coming of age and more. With limitless possibilities in fabric, buckles and design, Martin can actually create for the buyer a piece that could become a family heirloom or a special birthday or celebration of life gift.
    She can be reached at [email protected] or by checking out the Facebook page.  Kate Martin is ready to create a wearable work of art for you and your family. Each one is a work of art and a work of love, so check out this new Addison County business and yet another example of how art, life, and a passion for excellence blend to create the fabric of life in Addison County.
