Eothen, Greek translation for “from the East,” grows from a root of appreciation and respect for the Natural World taught to its founder, Katie Chirgotis, by her father. The emotional connection to the turning of the seasons and skies is a cornerstone on which she was raised, and continues to move through the world.
Katie grew up on a small organic farm in Virginia. She moved to California in 2011 after a career in advertising to live in a remote cabin and farm in Santa Cruz. After a stint abroad, she returned to the Bay Area and was crazylucky to be brought under the mentorship of Studio Choo.
Her work has been called kinetic, spiritual and evocative. Big energies, loud music, holding ritual and seeing the signs all strongly influence her art. She is eternally grateful for all the love and guidance that's brought her to where she is today.
