Oh hello there!
My name is Kaitlyn and I am a Watercolour & Calligraphy Artist based in Calgary, Alberta.
Thank you so much for visiting my website! Congratulations if you are a bride to be or planning a special event! I am so excited to share my passion and work with you. All of our pieces are designed with attention to detail and are a one of a kind, personalized piece made just for you. I cannot wait to work together to create some of your favourite elements for your wedding or event!
From a young age I always loved all styles of art, music and dance. I started self teaching myself watercolour and calligraphy in preparation of my own upcoming wedding. I was lucky enough to take a few courses in person in Calgary and I fell in love as soon as I picked up a brush. After designing the invitations and all of the day of details for our own wedding I decided to start a business because I did not want to put that brush down! I signed up for an amazing online course taught by one of my favourite artists and began this journey and here we are today!
I would describe my calligraphy style as very whimsical and playful, definitely more modern. It is a style that is more artistic, with some bounce and flowy-ness to it. I am constantly learning and expanding my knowledge of calligraphy, watercolour and lettering!
When I am not working with a brush I love to hang out with my super supportive hubby Brent and take off to the mountains as often as possible! Living here we are definitely spoiled by having them less than an hour drive away. We love to go hiking and exploring summer or winter. Canmore is such a special place to us and has a very special meaning for us. Even more so since we just got married there in May of 2017. We also love to travel (favourite second home is Phoenix, Arizona - hence the engagement photos you can see above).
A few fun facts about me!
- I have a cat named Eljay and he is the most spoiled cat I know! He is an orange tabby & is always by my side when I am creating pieces. He is such an important part of my life that I even included him in my personal wedding vows ;) -
- My hubby and I are currently building our home here in Airdrie and it has been such a fun process! The house is for sure inspired by my fav designer, Jillian Harris (huge fan!) We cannot wait to move in and make it our own -
- When I describe stories or things I love to use gestures and sound effects. It makes Brent say everytime "How did that go?" I think he thinks it's endearing lol -
- I have been wanting to start this business for two years now and finally took the leap of faith to GO! I have come to realize that life is precious and we should be spending our time on things we love, so here I am today -
Let's Stay in Touch!
I am so honoured that you have taken the time to visit my site. I hope that I hear from you soon and we can create something special together. It is a privilege to have couples pick me to be a part of their special day and I am so excited to see what we can come up with!
