Kathy Cano-Murillo is a writer, novelist, artist, illustrator and founder of the award-winning site, CraftyChica.com.  We are proud that Kathy will be one of our guest speakers at our discussion panel on May 13th, “Successful Latina Influencers: Tips For Bloggers And Brands.” Known for her glittery “Mexi-boho” style, she is a national spokesperson for iLoveToCreate and a creative influencer for Lowe’s Home Improvement Stores. She has a product line that is carried in Michaels stores and is a former columnist for The Arizona Republic, and has authored nine books, two of them novels. She has been featured in The New York Times, USA Today, HGTV, DIY Network, Lifetime TV, and more. When Kathy isn’t designing, crafting, or writing books, she tours the country teaching classes and giving motivation and business presentations.

In 2001, Kathy launched CraftyChica.com, a wildly popular web site to inspire women to brighten their lives with clever lifestyle ideas. The site began as an online diary about juggling family, a full-time job as a newspaper reporter and a craft designer by night. Now in it’s 13th year, CraftyChica.com has evolved into a well-rounded lifestyle site that is anchored in DIY and crafts, but also embraces books, shopping, fashion, business, movies, food, travel, beauty, tech, family life and more. She is a third-generation Mexican-American, a native Phoenician, mom, wifey, with four Chihuahuas. Kathy is also working on two new product lines and is a weekly columnist for Latina.com.
