What better time to feature Catherine Cook of Catherine Cook Art & Design's adorable hand painted watercolour cards on the blog! Catherine is a local artist & graphic designer here in Halifax, and also my friend! We met about 5 years ago through our boyfriends (mine is now my husband, and her's is now her fiance!). She designed my wedding invitations in 2013, which were stunning! (I'll have to share them with you another time) I can't wait to see what her's will look like! Growing up on the South Shore of Nova Scotia, she moved into the city to pursue her Graphic Design Diploma, and launched her first cards in the gift shop at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia in April 2012. The cards were Easter themed and were each hand painted. No two cards were alike! Her greatest passions in life are art, nature and animals which she surrounds herself with and uses as her inspiration.
In 2013 her company began printing cards and selling through local shops. Today, her cards can be purchased at three local shops in Halifax and Dartmouth (Kept, Duly Noted, & The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia), and online through her Etsy shop.
She has just released new card designs for this Valentine's Day and they are adorable! I mean, c'mon, how cute is the Dachshund holding the heart bunting? Get them before they're gone! Visit her website for more cards (individual and boxed sets) for all occasions! You can also follow her on facebook to keep up with her newest products!
Stay tuned for more Valentine's Day posts!
