Ballet Dancer Turned Designer

Hi there, I'm Katie! I created Line & Kind Paper Co. officially in 2019 but it started long before then. As a professional ballet dancer for almost 10 years and a freelance graphic designer I was a integral part of bringing other people's stories to life. I craved a personal, creative outlet. Over the course of a few years, I created a collection of over 70 illustrations. I experimented with them as greeting cards and fell in love with the medium - the paper community, the sense of connection & meaning a card can bring, and the personal creative expression. 

Every card and every order is special. Each speaks so true to the individual that chose them, I love seeing your personality come through. I hope you enjoy taking a look around!

A Little About Me

Why stationery?
It combines so many elements I love: the tactile element, color, design, connection, meaning, paper. I relish in how it combines all of these elements into a single tangible thing that shares a moment with someone else. 

When did you start dancing?
When I was 6 years old! 

When you're not dancing or designing what do you like to do?
This is tough because my job is also my hobby, which is an incredibly fortunate situation. That said, I love plant shopping, reading, listening to true crime podcasts, and all things crafty.
