Inspirational quotes are great to keep you motivated. But they are even better if they are elegant enough to make you want to look at it everyday.

This is a listing for a quote or letter of about 30 words long (plus or minus a few),

If your quote is shorter or longer, I can work with you to come up with a price that will work for both of us.

The sample pieces pictured is on hot press watercolor paper. So it's like a textured card stock paper. The paper pictured is just a soft white, but let me know if you would like a crisp white. My standard options for paper are bright white, soft white (almost a cream), and black. My standard ink colors include: Black, brown (looks antique), vermillion (orange, but a pretty orange), & white. Of course if there is another color you would like for paper or ink, let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Let's make you something beautiful and custom together! Please reach out to me and we can make this happen.

    Katie's work has such a soft, elegant flow to it that's awe-inspiring which is why I beseeched her to make a custom quote of mine which I couldn't been happier with...the artistry enunciates much wisdom & experience!
    For a special quote/note to be sent to a loved one, this indeed is the right stop!

    Thank you so much again. A returning customer for sure 💕
