My name is Kristi Patterson, the owner, and artist for this company. I am an enthusiast for all things artsy, shabby chic & positive. I am a mother of two, and I am married to the man of my dreams. I grew up on San Juan Island in Washington State. I moved to Kingman, Arizona about 19 years ago. Why did I name it KTea Designs?
I grew up with a phenomenal grandmother, Willa Jean. She loved antiques, flowers, and teacups. From the moment I can remember, one of my most precious moments were when she let me open up the hutch, take each cup out gently and dust them. Then, we would sit at the kitchen table, listen to the wind chimes, and drink tea out of the cup I had picked for the day and talk. This name is in homage to her. Willa Jean. With a play off of my initials (KT) and my grandmother's penchant for teacups - KTea Designs was born!
I started doing customized art designs on boards with a wood burner and a few cutting boards that I bought off of Amazon. I have linked a couple of the items that I've used in the past below so you can check it out. If you have a unique artist in your family and find that its something that would interest them, use the link below. I do get a little commission off of this link but the most important thing is that you can share a new type of art into their life! Who knows maybe it will inspire them like it inspired me and start a business!
