Oh, hey there! Wanna know a bit more about me? Well, for starters, feel free to call me Kate or Katie – I respond to both like a dog responds to turkey or beef.
I’m a mom to two precious little girls, ages 6 and 18 months, and they’re the center of my world (my two rescue pups make sure they’re not too far outside that center). But second to all of that, art and home decor are my passions, and I’ve spent most of my adult life exploring these fields. My super-duper husband and I also love tackling home renovation, and this will be a major topic explored through the blog on this site.
To clue you in on a bit of my background, I spent the first half of my twenties nailing down a B.A. and M.A. in Art History (with a specialization in both gender studies and Modern European Art). Immediately after graduating, I scored some pretty dope curatorial internships at places like the Guggenheim, the Phillips Collection, The Smithsonian Museum of American Art, the Whitney Museum and Doyle New York. Then I got sick. Real sick. And when I got a bit better, I was inspired to switch things up! I applied to Columbia University’s post-baccalaureate program in Pre-Medical Sciences, and a few months later I found myself on W.116th street in Calculus class.
Am I confusing you? Are you all like, “what the hell is this girl about?”
Well, it turns out medicine wasn’t for me. I’m here, with Kate Pearce Vintage and loving it. I also run an Instagram page with more than 20K followers, and often collaborate with like-minded brands to promote their art and home decor products. And, at the heart of Kate Pearce Vintage is all the mid-century modern and art deco vintage sold on both Instagram and Etsy… and soon to be sold right here at www.katepearcevintage.com
