About Me

Updated April 25, 2021

Wielder of pens and brushes.

I just got into watercolour recently. I normally paint with acrylics. I am enjoying the way watercolours flow and blend and appreciating the looseness and expressiveness of this new medium. I paint big with acrylic and small with watercolour. My little palette and postcard sized papers mean I can sit on my couch and paint ๐ŸŽจ in the evening.

Fountain pen ๐Ÿ–‹ enthusiast.

My Moonman S5 arrived today (April 2021). I got into fountain pens because I was tired of throwing out spent fine line markers. I am in love with all the lovely fountain pen inks and am addicted to watching ink review videos. I am now on the hunt for fountain pen friendly paper. Iโ€™ve picked up a whole new vocabulary: feathering, bleed through, shading.

I live on Canadaโ€™s beautiful west coast on Vancouver Island, in a rainforest, in the mountains, near the sea. My husband and I, and a little cat that we found sleeping in our patio 3 months ago, enjoy a quiet life. I spend my time gardening, book binding, painting and writing.


I donโ€™t watch TV but I do love watching creators on YouTube.

Learned a lot about bookbinding and became addicted to fountain pens and ink.


According to the Myers Briggs personality test I am an INTJ (Introverted, iNtuitive, Thinking, Judging).

This Swap meet seems like a great way to make some connections and have a little fun. Itโ€™s a nice way to get social in this socially distant world we have been navigating.

Iโ€™ve been having fun making ATCs.

Comment: Your ATC was beautiful! I wish I could do embellished cards. Let's swap again!
Response: Thanks Auroa! Iโ€™d love to trade again. I will rate yours as soon as I receive it. Mail delivery is crazy slow.

Catida rated for Private ATC swap Catida&Katastick on Apr 26, 2021
Comment: Your letter in the lovely bird envelope arrived today. It only took 10 days, that's fast! The fish ATC is gorgeous, I will put it above my desk so I can keep admiring it :) You'll laugh when you get my letter, because I, too, recommended Tomoe River paper! Only mine is the thinner sort. I would not recommend mixing fountain pen inks without careful research, because I've heard some of them can react in a bad way and cause clogs. Happy swapping!
Response: This made my day! Thanks for the advice. Maybe I should get a glass dip pen for mixing inks. Then I can change colours quickly. Kat

Comment: Thank you for you are postcard and positive quote. I have started a positive postcard quote Journal and I am adding your your name and your quote to my journal. I think it will be fun to go back over time and read all of the positive quotes I received. Best regards, Alma
Response: Youโ€™re welcome! Youโ€™re the first to receive a swap from me. ๐Ÿงง
