Life is short, buy the artwork, drink the wine, order the dessert

Hey! I’m Catherine, an illustrator, designer and party addict. I collaborate with my clients to create one of a kind illustrations for families, couples and corporate clients, commemorating their special milestones and events.

I’ve worked for longer than I’d like to admit (because it makes me sound old) with clients to commemorate their milestones and special places to grace their walls or give as gifts and I’m honored to work on every project. From custom portraits, home illustrations, watercolor furry friends and much more I serve my wonderful clients by capturing the story in a whimsical and sentimental way.
