Hi there!

I'm Katie, the Owner and Artist of Neer the Creek. It's my passion to create art that celebrates memorable moments. I've always felt it was important to hold onto memories that have made you who you are, and that's exactly what I hope to bring to my work.

This brand started as a partnership with my husband, Andrew. Our long-distance relationship during college is what led us to name the business after our alma maters, Appalachian State and Campbell University. Now, I've taken on the business on my own (but not without his help, of course).

As a designer, I love to help people discover their own story through design and branding efforts. I never pass up an opportunity to design invitations, programs, menus, or anything else for a happy couple.



I love being able to creatively capture a moment in time with watercolors. Pets, houses, churches, and venues are my specialties.


From traditional envelope calligraphy to modern handlettering on event signage, I offer services to personalize your wedding or event.

Hi, I'm Katie!

When I'm not working my full-time gig as a Graphic Designer at Spoonflower, I'm at home working on any and all things creative for Neer the Creek.


I want to create intentional designs that are sentimental. I hope you can look at one of my paintings and remember all of the intimate details of your wedding day or all the memories that made your childhood house feel like a home. As long as I'm creating meaningful work that serves a purpose, I'm happy.

Breakfast food is my go-to, and I love anything chocolate. I own way too many blankets to count, I'm a "wanna be" plant mom, and I was a collegiate student-athlete for four years at App State. I'm so glad you've come across my website!
