meet the artists

So nice to meet you! We are Alisha + Whittney, the two women who make up the dynamic duo that is Être. Être means, "to be" in french and since we both have fond memories of our travels to Paris, it only makes sense. Let us create something special for you, your wedding, your home, or your event that is everything you wanted it to be

Whittney does all of the watercolor design, and Alisha does all of the lettering + calligraphy. Our small business started in the spring of 2016 and began with a love for details, pretty things, + the simple enjoyment of creating something beautiful. We've evolved as creative entrepreneurs in our design style as we've figured out our ever changing style. We’re not afraid of color and believe that handmade art adds depth, creativity, and uniqueness to every room.

We believe that hiring us should not only be the beginning of your creative process, but the beginning of a relationship of trust. We want our clients to trust us with their ideas, which is something so vulnerable, and entrust that we will use our talents to bring those ideas to life. So what do you say? Send us a message and let's chat over a latte. We want to hear about your ideas that are so special and lovely and we want to be the ones that help you turn them into reality.






We'd love to hear from you about your ideas + your visions that you want our help bringing to life. We love clients who want to think outside the box to come up with projects and details that set their special day, their home, or their event apart. Contact us through the form below and we'd love to meet up over a cup or coffee to talk through your vision.
