My name is Katie O’Connor. I am a local Alaska Native artist of Nome Alaska! I have a wonderful family and my children inspire me everyday. I look to freeze time in my photography and create amazing paintings reflecting my surroundings. We live in a beautiful place, and we sometimes don’t realize how lucky we are to have Nome as our home. I hope through my artwork and photography I can give not just locals, but visitors a better appreciation for this place we call home.

I also love love love reminding people of how beautiful they are through portrait photography. I want to give them something they couldn’t imagine getting in such a small community.
