Announcement   Hello, I'm Kate and I want to make things for you! I love any excuse to practice lettering so a lot of my calligraphy involves quotes inspired by doodling while watching tv. Whether its funny or sweet, I want to make work that connects with people because those are the things that hang on walls and live in keepsake boxes for years. in 2017, I began creating listings to raise funds for causes that are important to me. Thanks to your support, I've been able to donate over $100 to the ACLU and Bloody Good Period!

About

Hello, I'm Kate!

I like to make work that lives in people's homes and makes them smile everyday. If I smiled while I was making it then I feel like its a great fit in my shop. I began making greeting cards in January of 2014 and by January of 2015, Hello, I'm Kate! officially became an LLC! I sell my work locally in Minneapolis at i like you, Minnesota Center for Book Arts and Hazel & Rose and have been nominated for two consecutive LOUIE awards from the Greeting Card Association. I also love collaborating with other artists and businesses! I have provided calligraphy for Kit + Ace, Minnesota Monthly Magazine, Minny & Paul, Golden Girls Workshops, The Riveter X Public Functionary and Midway Contemporary Art.

    I am a graphic designer originally from Southern California. I moved to Minneapolis in 2010 to pursue an MFA in printmaking and it's there that I really became interested in calligraphy. Now, I love mixing all 3 mediums for prints & greeting cards!
