Because I'm bad at talking about my feelings...

Hi, I'm Katie! I’m an illustrator + author + hand-letterer based in Upstate New York. I design my own line of greeting cards, prints and other stationery products, which are sold both online and in brick and mortar shops across North America. My greeting card line is inspired by the sticky sweet, awkward and funny, sometimes emotionally heavy things that are easier written than said.

My little studio is decorated with little house plants and a hot pink couch. My window looks out into the woods behind our house, and chirping birds are the soundtrack to most mornings. My artwork is inspired by the whimsical details in nature, my dog, and the ordinary moments of life. I particularly love gardening, Harry Potter, traveling to new places, and cooking/baking (current obsession: star bread). When I’m not drawing, you can find me in my kitchen trying out a new recipe, reading on the couch with Tater curled up next to me, checking on my plants, or dreaming of the next place I want to visit.

In addition to running this shop, I also create/illustrate books and work as a freelance illustrator. My books include LIFE WITH PLANTS (Andrews McMeel, 2021); MY LIFE IN PLANTS (Andrews McMeel, 2020); THE ESCAPE MANUAL FOR INTROVERTS (Andrews McMeel, 2019); MAKE YOURSELF COZY (Andrews McMeel, 2018); and DON'T WORRY, EAT CAKE (Andrews McMeel, 2016), which was featured on Canada's Biggest Bestseller List at Chapters Indigo.

My illustrations and paper goods have been featured on sites like BuzzFeed, Woman’s Day, POPSUGAR, Real Simple, and Design Sponge.

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

My wholesale shop is available through Faire! Please visit https://katievaz.faire.com or email me at katie@katievaz.com for more details.

Custom and personalized orders

Custom illustration inquiries are welcome! Please know that I cannot customize current designs on my products, as they are already printed and packaged! I'm happy to discuss new custom designs though.

Sustainability

Whenever possible, I use environmentally friendly materials in my production. All greeting cards and art prints are designed and printed in the USA on partially recycled, FSC-certified, natural white cardstock. I support other small businesses by professionally printing those products at local mom-and-pop shops.
