Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays and Thank You to everyone who has helped this business launch this year. I really appreciate all the business and the support!


New Website!

I have a new website for Bloom Art & Design! Right now its just a splash page for contact information, but I hope to get it functioning with more information and even sales soon! Let me know what you think!



Bauer Holiday Cards

These are the holiday cards I designed for my in-laws this year. They have a large family and weren't able to take the annual family photo this year so they needed a way to show everyone's face on the same card. My mother-in-law also always adds a yearly letter to her card, so we created a matching letterhead holiday stationery. I think they turned out great!


Holiday Cards

And now for the pictures you have all been waiting for...

(The photo inside the card is not a picture of a client and is purely there to show that the ribbon from the wreath on the front of the card holds the photo on the inside as well.)


Holiday Cards

My first holiday card order is complete. Stay tuned for the pictures, I'm waiting until the client receives them before ruining the surprise by posting them on here. Heres a glimpse...

Save The Dates

I have another friend who is also getting married next May, she asked me to do the design but not manufacture her postcards. Their colors are orange and green, with a little blue, and the bride requested extra space at the bottom on the back to write a note if she felt so inclined. So here is the design, as always comments are appreciated.


Save The Dates

My friend Tammi is getting married in May, and she has asked me to design her invitations. She and her fiance also decided to send out Save The Dates, so here they are. Her colors are light blue, grey/silver and black. She wanted a single flat card that fits into an A6 envelope, but we needed to fit so much information that if became a folded card, and we kept the A6 size.
Here is the final product. Enjoy! All comments are welcome, please let me know what you think.


Holiday Card Deadline

If you're thinking about holiday cards already, you aren't crazy. It really is that time again. Im now taking holiday card orders for your custom projects. The deadline for orders to be received two weeks before Christmas is Friday, November 14th. Please email if you're interested and we can get rolling on your holiday cards! Thank you to everyone who has already placed an order, I really appreciate all the business!

Happy Holidays!

Austin Wedding and Event Coordinators Luncheon

I met this month's AWEC luncheon hostesses through a small business class that I took last month. They asked if I would create the menus and place cards for their October Luncheon. The final booklet included a cover page, menu, participating vendors page and a tear-off for a drawing. The theme was a spa getaway and the colors were celery green and turquoise.

Here are some pictures of the final product, let me know what you think.


Watercolor Portrait

My latest commissioned portrait is done.  Its a watercolor 14" x 16" on paper.  Please let me know what you think.  All comments are welcome!

katherineburley.blogspot.com no longer!

Hey everyone! I've had a few inquiries as to the current content of katherineburley.blogspot.com the old project blog address.  Someone is now posting spam there. I should have deleted it instead of just changing the address, I went about it the wrong way.  However no worries, it no longer exists and I have reported the problem to blogger.  This is now the home for all of my current work.  Enjoy!!

Skateboard Design Competition

This week is the deadline for a skateboard deck design competition I'm entering through DWR.  Im getting all the materials together and hope to turn it in today or tomorrow.  I thought you all might like to see what I've been working on.


Bloom Art and Design

To Update all of you on the new business. Its one step closer to fruition, I have turned in my DBA to officially become Bloom Art and Design. The business will continue to include illustration and portrait painting as well as the greeting card venture. Please contact me for your next invitation, greeting card, stationary, illustration or portrait project!

Painting Progress

I've been asked recently about the painting I've been working on. So here are some pictures to update you. So far so good, probably a little more work on it. Comments and critiques welcome!!


Wedding Invitations

Yesterday I finished my biggest project yet. A 190 piece invitation set for a wedding. The colors are Brown, white and a little green. THe package included 190 Invitations, 190 RSVP postcards, 190 Reception cards with maps on the back and 210 A7 envelopes. I am so happy with the end product. I also designed the monogram for the invitation set which the bride and groom have purchased the rights to. You can see they've used it for shot glasses and have plans to use it on other elements throughout their wedding. (info blurred for clients privacy)
