Natika-Faith Maurizi is a designer and watercolor artist based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She started School Loft Designs in 2014 when asked to create wedding invitations for her best friend. She’s a graduate of Point Park University with a Bachelors Degree in Advertising. Painting, drawing and making cards started at a young age as a hobby. Encouragement from friends and family has allowed her to grow and start her own shop.
School Loft Designs began at her loft apartment in the old 5th Avenue high school; hence the name. In May 2016, she and her husband bought their new Pittsburgh home, where she now works from her in-house studio.
Her designs draw influence from nature, food, travel and the simple joys in life. She's inspired by people to create cute quirky greeting cards and feminine floral wedding stationery for the modern day bride.
