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 seems like a natural career choice. It was an accidental one, however. I’ve worn many hats on my journey to where I am now, but I’m very grateful to say that I now love what I do. Being able to take a client’s ideas and preferences, and turn it into a beautiful, one of a kind visual branding experience is so rewarding.

Avalon Rose Design is a small business and a mostly one woman show. Purchasing from Avalon Rose Design doesn’t help some big shot buy a new hot rod or go on vacation. Each purchase literally helps me put food on my table, pay my bills, clothe my kids and save for my their college educations. Thank you so much for all your support over the years!

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.
