The process of creating and expressing herself through art was a passion for Katie Gaines throughout childhood and high school. After graduating from the University of California, San Diego, with a B.A. in Visual Arts, she started her graphic design career in the finance market. During this time, many requested her help designing wedding invitations or painting murals in their homes. Soon, these “side projects” became a steady, full time schedule and in 2000, she left the corporate world to start her own company specializing in custom invitations, murals, and decorative painting. Love Paper Paint has created beautiful invitations, designed logos/branding, painted murals and decorative finishes, and produced custom artwork for clients all over Southern California, throughout the U.S., and even as far away as Australia, Italy, and Taiwan. Her work is featured in magazines, designer showcases, and online publications.
