Illustrator | Designer | Baby Cuddler | Happy Dancer
Hello! My name is Katrina, and I am so glad that you are here exploring my little site. I hope you find as much joy here as I do.
My goal is still to celebrate the season of life that my brides are in—whether they are newly engaged and looking for save the dates, finalizing the details on their wedding suite, or sending me pictures for their first anniversary gift. Blushed is a one–gal–show, so every Email, design and instagram post has my finger prints on it. I love getting to know my brides on a more personal level—literally celebrating things that happen in their everyday life as well as their next big adventure.
My style is a blend of classical, historic inspired design with a fresh twist. I love the details of wax seals, the long standing tradition of snail mail, and the elegance of strong design. Paired with that, I have a love affair with color and bring a cleaner, simplified flair to the things of old that I love so much. I come from a historical, realism background, but I have always admired the playful and more relaxed style of the impressionists, and the freedom and expression of color study and modern florals. I find that blending the two creates an elegant, but playful and heartwarming piece.
I am a lover of historical fiction novels. I have entire passages of Jane Austen's novellas memorized, and I would dare to say that she has had an influence in my overall style.
My husband is also a fine artist and paints beautiful landscapes in oil and acrylic. I love that he is able to give me extra insight in my design work and that he understands when I "talk shop". Together we coach a high school cross country team, play endless rounds of "Ticket to Ride", watch Psych reruns, swing dance in the living room and play with our sweet baby boy.
Wedding papers establish the "brand" of your event – from the first impression of your invitation, to the final glance at your reception menus.
The Heirloom Collection offers exclusive services such as foil printing, custom illustrations, letter press printing, and wax seals.
The perfect heirloom to commemorate your special day. An elegant ink outline captures you and your loved one in a moment of true joy, while colored pencils or watercolors bring the entire piece to life! I cannot wait to begin on your very own beautiful piece.
