Hi, I am Katie Harley, the artist and business owner behind Paper Praises. I paint and produce everything from my home studio in Oakmont, Pennsylvania (a small town outside of Pittsburgh). I design, paint, print, photograph, package & ship everything that you see here. Paper Praises is truly a small, hand-made, woman-owned business from start to finish.
Flowers and nature inspire me and you will see a lot of that in my artwork. I also have a passion for words and hand lettering. I create most of my work by hand using paint & brushes. Recently, I began creating some of my artwork in digital form using my ipad. My artwork is available as prints, greeting cards, stickers and other products so that it can be shared and enjoyed.
I have always had a passion for creativity and making things. Several years ago God gave me the name "paper praises" as a way to describe my practice of hand lettering scripture and creating artwork in response to what I was reading in the Bible. This name seemed perfect for my art business because when I create, I am praising the Creator. It is my hope that each piece of artwork that is purchased from my shop will praise & glorify God by providing encouragement & joy to the person who receives it.
Thank you so much for visiting my shop and supporting my small hand made business.
