about & contact

ChatterBox Press is the story-making studio of artist & educator Katie Hafner.

Chatterbox Press is an artist-built home place for visionary artwork housed in craft-like vessels such as books, pictures, charts & instructions. Outside the constraints of formal art space, radical & regenerative forces move freely here. Open to interpreting the meaning and nature of the word ‘press’ and ‘print’  we willingly experiment with reproduction media—new & old—that enlivens the storytelling process and engages people.Chatterbox Press is created in the folk tradition and aims to deliver affordable & accessible art work as a celebration of life: domestic, participatory, ephemeral and intimate.

Trained in fine arts with a natural bend toward conceptual thinking and collage-like process, Katie makes imaginative multi-dimensional artwork. She creates stories, poems, pictures & rituals across disciplines, for traditional art spaces and in domestic or educational settings.

Katie lives with her family in a small house surrounded by garden and set in a rural subdivision adjacent to an abandoned ski resort. She homeschools her three children, homesteads, and prefers walking.
