Hi! I'm Katie Duane

My name is Katie and I'm a web developer, writer, artist, and former high school art teacher. I'm curious, driven, and love to collaborate.

Currently, I work as a Frontend Developer at PLS 3rd Learning in Buffalo, NY. When I'm not writing code, it's very likely that I'm writing essays, painting, reading (usually 18 books at once), or spending time outside. I'm also a registered yoga teacher and love to travel.

I'm working on remaking this portfolio site using Gatsby.js (and adding a bit more about my art & writing). Stay tuned for changes :)

A quick aside: I chose to draw a violet for the homepage because they can thrive almost anywhere, growing all over the world, in varying climates and locales. They are symbolic of spring, humility, candor, and intuition.

I'm also a practicing writer and artist. If you're interested in reading some of my work, you can find two recently published pieces: a poem about time, here: Jasper, and an essay about a star cluster and mythology, here: M45. I also wrote a literary city guide for Rochester, NY. Of course, I have several more projects in the works!
