The name, 1 Happy Place, reflects my primary goal of ensuring you feel comfortable and happy with your website. I have been a Software Developer for 30 years and love to take the real world and bring it into the digital space. As a full-stack developer, I work with WordPress, Shopify and other technologies to create features that will best serve your business needs.
I take the time to get to know you and your creative work to build a website that best communicates your career. I create designs that bring the work front and center, so visitors to the website focus only on your work and not the website itself.
Websites should keep pace with the ebb and flow of your creativity. Once the website is launched, I provide you with affordable hosting and support over the long term, ensuring the website is always fresh, reflects your business and runs smoothly.Learn more

We worked closely together to redesign my website which I simply Love, as it represents me personally and as an artist. Thank you so much Katie.
The new site which honors my great-grandaunt, Oscar-winning actress Hattie McDaniel, has received great reviews from friends and colleagues (including my publicist team). 1 Happy Place is flexible, creative, professional, and honest. Working with Katie Ayres has been an amazing journey.
-Kevin John Goff
My regard for her enthusiasm and appreciation of an artists work, translates to a beautiful user-friendly website. It is a comfort to have this important business aspect professionally handled for me by Katie.
I would definitely recommend Katie's web design packages (great choices), and her amazing skill base to anyone looking to create a new website. I am so very happy with mine and the future website maintenance service Katie offers.

I am extremely satisfied. If you are looking for a professional, reasonably priced web site I highly recommend 1 Happy Place.
With Katie and 1 Happy Place, I have amazing support at a reasonable price, which leaves me free to focus on what I love – making artwork. Katie Ayres has my heartfelt and top recommendation for her services.
