About Me

Welcome! I’m the Katy Maslow in KatyMaslow.com.

In my personal life, I am an artist and diorama-maker. Professionally, I am a creative enchantress, providing marketing, social media, and design services to artists and small businesses. My specialty is in thoughtfully creating and maintaining online visual identities. I’m eager to help those seeking to create or improve their online presence, practice, or processes.

I was once the innovator and creator of Twig Terrariums, and the co-author of Tiny World Terrariums (Abrams Books, STC Craft). My passion for miniatures has been decades in the making.

Mossoleum (moss·uh·lee·uhm) is a combination of my love of miniatures and storytelling. And cemeteries. Commissions for dioramas are always welcome. Follow my work @mossoleumshop.

I was the founder, co-owner, and miniature force behind Twig Terrariums, an award-winning plant-based company that was established in 2010. Building on my lifelong fascination with plants and miniatures, I developed a unique brand in the retail landscape, resulting in significant press, sales, & industry recognition. The New York Times described my early contributions as “...terrariums [that] marry the current rage for Victoriana with the growing interest in handmade crafts and all things do-it-yourself.” (Terrariums Make a Comeback)

My business achievements and artistic creations have been featured in The New York Times, Entrepreneur Magazine, Real Simple, Wall Street Journal, NPR, and more. I co-authored Tiny World Terrariums, a step-by-step guide to easily contained life from STC Craft & Abrams Books, 2012. I was a Featured Artist at the Museum of Art & Design for their Otherworldly exhibit, as well as Guest Artist at the American Folk Art Museum. I have conducted workshops with New York University, The New York Botanic Garden, Brooklyn Botanic Garden Continuing Ed, New York Horticultural Society, and all around the country.

As the owner of Twig Terrariums, our work brought us to many events, conducting workshops, demonstrations, and entertaining the guests of clients, such as…

But wait, there’s more.

As an artist, I find myself immersed in many creative pursuits. I identify as a Fat Artist, and I created The Artifats Collection to represent this genre of art that receives very little space to exist in the art world.

The Artifats Collection: Fat Art made by Fat Artists. Artifats is dedicated to taking up space in the art world by only featuring the work of fat artists, prioritizing QTBIPOC, disabled, and superfat artists.  You can currently view Artifats on Instagram as well as support this work on Patreon!
