About

My name is Katie, and I have been a graphic and web designer for over 8 years. I am truly passionate about everything I create. As for the sewing side of things, well, it's in my blood. My mom and grandma taught me everything I know and my mom is my partner in crime when it comes to all of our bags and straps. We're a great team if I do say so myself!

{THE DAY JOB - GRAPHIC DESIGN}

I am head-over-heels-in-love with art and design. It is while creating that I am truly happiest! I am a graduate of the Grant MacEwan University Visual Communication and Design program, and have been a graphic designer for the past 8 years. I excel at taking ideas and forming them into something tangible, whether it be a logo, an illustration, a website, or the whole kit-and-caboodle.

{THE DAY/NIGHT/WEEKEND JOB - SEWING}

My other passion in life is sewing, and being a graphic designer I'm constantly drawn to bold, colourful fabrics. I've also always loved collecting purses and tote bags of any kind, so when I discovered I had a knack for sewing, I started making these as gifts for those closest to me. My friends and family told me I should be sharing those creations with others, and so now I am! Because running two businesses (three, if you count photography) keeps me hopping, my mom decided to partner with me and helps me keep up with all the sewing orders and fabric buying. She's also an amazing bag designer and an skilled artist herself. Our partnership is perfect since she taught me everything I know!
