Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by. It’s lovely to meet you!

My name is Courtney Khail (pronounced like the leafy green) and I am the owner and artist of courtney khail watercolors. Here I create one-of-a-kind watercolor paintings, as well as luxury invitations and stationery that celebrates the beauty of a hand penned letter. After years focusing on my wedding work, I am excited to now offer my paintings and printed note cards as well! I am so fortunate to do what I love every day, and am honored to have had my work included publications such as Southern Living, the knot, and Brides magazine, as well as sites such as Oh So Beautiful Paper, DesignLoveFest, and Design Crush. (If you would like to see a more complete list of my work has been shared, please click the “Seen” tab.)

Currently, I am working on a series of paintings studying the cross sections of fruits and vegetables. By presenting them in this unusual way, you’re able to recognize the subtle beauty found within these everyday items. To see paintings available for sale, please click here.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss possibilities for custom paintings, please feel free to email me right here.


Growing up, I was always drawing or painting. When I was ten, I was accepted to a fine arts magnet school where I studied until high school graduation. I am incredibly fortunate for that experience, not only because it allowed me to recognize and nurture my passion for art at a very young age, but also because the creative environment stressed discipline and self discovery- two characteristics that have proven invaluable. (Because of my experience, I am also a firm believer in the importance of fine art programs in our schools.) When I went away to college, I decided to study scientific illustration in order to combine both my passion for painting and my love of nature and science. (Confession, I’m a total science nerd. I even met my husband in a dissection lab! Romantic, right?) Today, I continue to intertwine those loves in both my professional and personal works. Always seeking to discover and share new inspiration, I hope my designs bring as much happiness and joy to you as they do me!

courtney khail watercolors is based out of Denver, Colorado where Courtney lives with her husband, Jordan and their black lab, Bella.
