HOW I INSTA
Katie Campbell is the creator and award-winning artist behind LUXE PortraitsTM, customized museum-quality oil paintings created using a modern blend of photography and painting, and she is also lead photographer at KATIEBIRD Photography.
She has spent her entire life in the arts. Growing up in Birmingham, AL (Roll Tide!), she studied dance starting at age 3 and photography at age 12. After graduating Summa Cum Laude with a degree in math from Birmingham-Southern College, her love of the arts led her to a career in Los Angeles, CA. She spent 12 years in LA working in TV & Film, earning a membership into the Screen Actors Guild and performing around the globe.
While living in LA, Katie cultivated her unique lines of portrait artistry. In early 2014, as her performing career matured and her portrait business began to flourish, Katie relocated to Denver where she met her fiancé Martin on the ski slopes in 2015. Martin and Katie both love to travel; whether it is for work, to visit friends and family, to see live music, or to attend college football events – especially the Alabama games – they are frequently on the go, even within Denver. Currently, they, and their Fox Hound Sadie, are settling into their new home in the Highlands neighborhood and looking forward to an April wedding in Birmingham.
