Meet Maria

Hello and welcome, friend!

My name is Maria, and I'm the blue-eyed, coffee-addicted sweet tooth behind Blush & Blue Designs. I was born and raised in Buffalo, New York, but relocated to Raleigh, North Carolina in 2016 in pursuit of warmer winters. My fellow Buffalonians will understand me when I say I hoard the Tim Hortons coffee cans and bags like they’re going out of business! I have a passion for good design, typography and making messes. When I’m not shopping for new paints and paper, I’m hiking through muddy trails with my pup, Tilda and my husband, Ryan, or contorting myself into interesting shapes during aerial silks classes.

Blush and Blue Designs is a private studio in my home where I create all the custom artwork and calligraphy for my sweet clients. From wedding invitations and event stationery materials, to branding for creatives and my own line of custom gifts and products I focus on bringing my clients' visions to life. Don’t have a vision but know what you need? That’s perfectly OK, that’s what I’m here for! Together we will come up with amazing artwork and designs that accentuate your brand and style.

At Blush and Blue Designs my main priorities are: 

  • Supply each of my clients with outstanding customer service, working as a team to ensure your designs make your heart sing with delight.
  • Produce beautiful one-of-a-kind art work that encapsulates your event or brand perfectly.
  • Provide detail oriented service to every project that enters my studio, from the moment you contact me from the second your project leaves the printer. No matter how big or small the project, each receives my quality care and attention. 

If you’re interested in learning even more about my story I invite you to click on over to my blog post The girl Behind Blush and Blue Designs

I can’t wait to meet you and learn all about your design needs! Have a question or are ready to see what gorgeous work Blush and Blue Designs can produce for you? I’d love to hear from you and grab a virtual or physical coffee and hear all the details. Let’s chat

Well that’s the somewhat short and sweet on my story. I hope you feel like you know me a little better. I would love to get to know you and your story and what bought you to my corner of the website through my contact page. I hope to connect with you soon.
