Catherine's Story


I didn’t know what I wanted to be when I grew up until I was almost 30. Art and design have been part of my life for as long as I can remember. Pair that up with an affinity for tech savviness, and website design seemed like a natural career choice. It was an accidental one, however. I’ve worn many hats on my journey to where I am now, and yet my journey is still progressing.  I’m very grateful to say that I now love what I do. I've worked with so many wonderful website design clients over the years, and I'm now transitioning over to graphic design work which I adore. Creating fonts, illustrations, paintings, and curating vintage graphic collections for commercial use makes my heart sing. 

 

On a personal level, I’m a wife, a mom to two kids and two dogs, an insatiable reader, a collector of old clocks and mountains of ephemera, a gardener, a coffee-lover, crochet queen, and of course an artist.
