HandwrittenbyKatherine-Unbranded-18.jpg

Hi!  I’m Katherine Yabes.  I am a Calligrapher and Paper Artist located based in San Diego, CA and St. Louis, MO.  I finally decided it was time to pursue all the things I’ve ever dreamed of and left my corporate job in the Bay Area a year ago.  I moved back to southern California and downsized everything I own to fit into my childhood room which also serves as my studio.  I am currently applying to graduate school, starting a calligraphy/party decor business, and completing yoga teacher training.  I am currently attending graduate school in St. Louis.

I graduated with a BA in International Studies from UC Santa Barbara.  After college, I went on to teach EFL in Asia.  I love to travel, mostly on my own, which makes for hilarious and interesting experiences.  My favorite countries are Portugal, Singapore, and Morocco.  My other interests include yoga, baking, stand-up comedy, extensive skincare regimens, eating delicious vegan food, and reading.
