It all started when...

Katie Danner drew her first architecturally accurate home illustration at the age of 10. She has been in love with architecture and design for as long as she can remember, and that combined with her inner need for constant creativity has led her to discover her passion for immortalizing architectural structures. 

After graduating from The University of Kansas School of Architecture and gaining professional experience in the field, Katie Danner came to the realization that technology had overtaken a craft that was once lovingly labored over by human hands. Katie wants to preserve the manual art of architectural design, to protect the love and attention to detail that goes into every line and curve drawn with a pen and paper. 

When you entrust Katie Danner with capturing your home in this way, the place where your life plays out and your heart feels most full, she is simultaneously humbled and filled with joy. Katie feels that it is her responsibility to create art that captures the traditions that have been practiced throughout history, and it is an honor to practice those traditions with your home. 



As a small business owner, Katie Danner values and appreciates each and every one of her clients for supporting her dream and allowing her to make a living doing what she truly loves. Katie understands what a rare gift and opportunity that is, and the fulfillment she finds in executing these custom home drawings is matched only by the joy that they bring to the recipients.

Thank you for letting me and my art be a part of your world.

“Giving a gift that sparks an emotional cord with clients is what makes my job so satisfying.  I decided early on to have Katie Danner do these custom home drawings for both my Buyers and Sellers.  It has turned out to be one of the best things I have done.  Clients have an overwhelming appreciation and gratitude for such a genuine gesture.  These custom drawings give them something to remember for years to come, but also makes them remember me as their trusted advisor."

"My business is a relationship business and this is the ideal gift for them to remember how much I care for them. I would strongly encourage any real estate agent to consider this as a means to constantly promote the value you bring to your clients.”

"If you are looking for a unique gift that is sure to be cherished, don't hesitate to order a Katie Danner custom home drawing. Katie's skill and attention to detail are unparalleled. Katie's drawing moved my father-in-law to tears.  He and my mother-in-law pored over each detail and have the drawing of their beloved home proudly displayed in a spot where they both see it throughout the day. Katie Danner's drawings are an unbeatable combination of craftsmanship and value; not to mention, Katie is extremely communicative and has quick turn-around times! I look forward to ordering from Katie for many years to come.

"What a great gift! My siblings and I have always had a hard time finding unique gifts to give to our mother. Last year, we commissioned Katie Danner Studio to draw the six homes that our family has lived in through the years. Our mother loved this gift and it was wonderful seeing all of the grandchildren look at all the homes that their parents grew up in. Katie Danner did an amazing job capturing all the details of our family homes and it has been the best gift we have given. Our mother truly cherishes them and I recommend this gift for loved ones. Thanks Katie!!!"
