About

Hello there! I’m Katie, and I LOVE all things to do with PAPER and PAINT…we’re talking seriously obsessed with all the fabulousness that can be created. I’m fortunate that this LOVE affair has allowed me to work with PAPER and PAINT every day…

I do what I LOVE and I LOVE what I do!

Welcome to Love Paper Paint…a place where my lifelong passion for creating beautiful things with paper and paint is explored and shared. Some may be familiar with me from my previous moniker, EITAK, which is the name of the custom stationery and decorative painting business I founded in 2000. But my “love affair” with all things paper and paint related began long before…as a young girl, I would hand-craft my own greeting cards or transform my bedroom on a whim by painting the walls and making over furniture.

A self-taught graphic designer and decorative painter, what started as a hobby hand-making invitations and painting murals for family and friends, turned into a full-on CRUSH and I fell MADLY in LOVE with the creative process. Word of mouth referrals spread and I quit my “day job” to start EITAK Design (now known as Love Paper Paint) and pursue my passion for art and design full-time. Whether it’s designing a wedding invitation ensemble or painting a mural, every project is taken from concept to completion with artistic vision, attention to detail, quality assurance and a whole lotta LOVE…by ME!

I ADORE color, pattern, texture (and lots of it, all at once, is totally fine by me). I get a little GIDDY opening a can of paint or holding new brushesSeeing and touching handmade papers, vintage ephemera and old books makes my HEART go all aflutter. Envisioning what can be created, transformed or revived with just a bit of PAPER and PAINT is what keeps my creative SPARK alive. I’m unabashedly enthusiastic about it all (and will chat endlessly, if given the chance).

Although my FIRST LOVE may be this affinity for art and design, my TRUE LOVE is my family. I married the brilliant, talented, super-gorgeous man of my dreams and together we share a happy home with our two imaginative and clever boys…and a feisty Frenchton pup, named Gizmo. There’s never a dull moment around here! As a family, we aspire to live life a bit more creatively, to be more mindful of the little things that inspire us in big ways, and to just have FUN enjoying every bit of awesomeness this lovely world has to offer!

Thank you for taking the time to visit, I do hope you’ll click around and get to know me and my work. Feel free to leave a comment or contact me (katie@lovepaperpaint.com) with any questions, project inquiries or custom orders.

Much LOVE,

Katie

    • Hi Pamela! I would be happy to discuss some Wonka party ideas with you. If you need invitations or printed goods for the theme, I have a chocolate bar wrapper/golden ticket invite that is really fun.
