the heart behind

Courtney Swaim Studio


cornerstone & mission

Inspired by the sacredness of the marital covenant, the beauty of nature, and the unconditional love of Christ, Evergreen Papery specializes in paper goods that encourage couples to live “I do” through every season of marriage.

I am who I am and do what I do because He is who He is and has done what He has done.

Each piece is carefully crafted and made with you in mind!

Thank you for allowing Evergreen Papery to be part of your story.

desert dweller . beauty seeker . adventure lover

HI! It is such a joy to meet you, and how ever you found your way here, I am so glad to have you! I am Courtney, and I am an mixed media artist who is obsessed with nature, beautiful, muted colors, and The Office.

I have two undergrad degrees in Behavior Health and Family Studies, but the beat of my heart is painting. The rawness and beauty of creating…. in my own journey, but helping others see it in theirs.

There is something so raw and beautiful about creating with my own hands that I am wildly passionate about. I believe each one of us is gifted with our own unique creativity and we are meant to cultivate and share it with others.

It is my sincerest joy to create for you and yours!

When I am not painting, you will find me in my natural habitat: snuggling and Netflixing with my sweet husband, Michael. I enjoy reading books that encourage and inspire my soul, adventuring and exploring my city, and organizing the places I often dwell in (usually at midnight too).
