The way art is created here is unique to The Storytellers Forest.
Everyone that purchases a piece of CUSTOM art plays a collaborative roll in its creation.
After you choose an art package, message me and together we will find words, ideas, symbols, colors, names, dates, any kind of descriptor you can think of, and I take those bits and pieces of your heart and weave them into a story or a painting. Depending on the package chosen, you will be able to revise the work, aka change details, before you receive the final edition.
PRIOR TO PURCHASE PLEASE MESSAGE THROUGH CONTACT FORM TO DISCUSS PERSONALIZATION OF ARTWORK

"Katlyn wrote a story for me after an incredibly long and painful journey to my rainbow baby. It was absolutely beautiful and I was in awe of how eloquent it was. Katlyn has a way with words that is truly one of a kind and heartfelt. Her stories are a gift that will be cherished forever."
"Katlyn, you're a wordweaver, storykeeper, the sacredness of your gift is immeasurable. Your gift of seeing [daughters name] through story has been so healing for our entire family."
"Katlyn weaves words together like threads from your soul to show you a tapestry of yourself you didn’t fully realize existed. It’s a form of therapy you didn’t know you needed in your life, but trust me, you do."
"Katlyn, penned a memorial piece about a friend of mine who had passed that she’d never met. However if you’d read it and knew him you’d be hard pressed to believe she wasn’t his deeply close friend. What she capture on paper from our mere descriptive words and stories we gave her, boggles the mind. It blessed our hearts deeply to have this piece of him in story form while we wait to meet again on the other side of glory."
"Katlyn has a gift for finding a person's soul through words. I've witnessed this many times with work she's given to my friends. Then, for my 4th pregnancy, I was gifted a mother blessing gift she created and the words somehow reached into places of my heart I didn't know needed to be brought to light. She has a God given talent and you wont regret using her services."
"Katlyn has such beautiful vision for creating unique art pieces. I gave her a list of completely random things about my husband, favorite animals, a verse, what he did for a living, things we enjoyed doing together and asked her to paint something that somehow combined those things. When I tell you random, it encompassed things l from medical implant design, to a mantis shrimp, to coffee, plus something to symbolize our children, and a Bible verse. She incorporated it all in a way that somehow is both beautiful, and makes sense. She has a gift for running with ideas and elevating them into lovely heirloom quality pieces of art."
