My Story

Hi! I’m Katie Shand, the creator, designer, artist and everything else behind the scenes at Elm & Son.


A little about me - a city girl in the country. Raised in Christchurch, but currently living in the tiny town of Kirwee. I moved out here 2 years ago with Mark my husband, Xander my son and Mea our dog. We have since welcomed our wee girl, Maisie to the family. Family life is busy but I love taking time out to be creative, whether it be making signs, creating wedding albums or my new endeavour – creating floral art pieces!


I have met so many awesome people on this journey thus far, and love chatting with each and every one of my clients! I am always up for a challenge. Reach out to me if you have a special project in mind, and together we will bring your vision to light!
