Hi! I'm Katie. I'm the owner/artist/operator/one-lady-show of Katie Grady Design. I'm married to Michael, mama to Ben and dog-mom to Pepper.
I've been a hobby letterer since 2010, when I discovered that it was a legitimate art form. And I've been doing lettering professionally since 2015!
I graduated with a BA in Art History from Arizona State in 2013, where thanks to a ton of art classes, I learned the foundations of art and design. Prior to being a work-at-home-mama, I worked at Scottsdale Bible Church in Communications, doing roughly a million different things (lol). In my five years there, I learned a lot about graphic design, print processes, and marketing. I credit these two experiences with bringing me to where I am today with lettering and design.
I absolutely love being able to create pretty things, especially ones that are tied to important milestones in people's lives (like weddings and babies)!
