Kathy Middlebrook

Kathy is the artist and owner of BoDaisy Designs, named after her sweet dogs Bodie and Daisy. Her love of colorful, fun designs has driven her and her artwork for most of her life.

She has been a professional artist for 16 years. Kathy's work has been printed and produced for commercial artwork, including: bath accessories, stationery, wallpaper, flags, gift wrap, home decor, and many other products sold in stores across the country.

Kathy is often asked, "Why Penguins?"
Growing up in San Diego, California, many family outings, as well as school field trips, were spent at the San Diego Zoo where she loved watching the monkeys, gorillas, and, of course, penguins. One day about 2 years ago, she was working on new art ideas when she thought back to those fun times at the zoo. Using her favorite medium, colored pencils, she drew a line of five penguins and added a hat to just one of them. It made her laugh, and the "Be Yourself Penguins" were born.

The collection has grown to more than 75 different penguin designs depicting hobbies, careers, personalities, and interests of people everywhere. As Kathy says, "Penguins all look and move exactly alike, but humans are all beautifully different. Being yourself and accepting and celebrating others for their differences is the most wonderful thing we can do for each other. So remember to always be yourself and live with joy, gratitude, and love in your heart."
