I spend my days working from home, creating original gouache and watercolor paintings, commissioned illustrations, and custom house portraits. My work is hand-painted, reflecting my love of all things imperfect and homespun. When I'm not painting, I'm dabbling in other more amateurish (for me) hobbies like knitting and photography. And cooking. And writing stories.  Please come visit me at my website, www.rebekkamannseale.com!

Erica spends her days chasing after two little boys, nabbing a moment to research and jot ideas down, and at night sitting at her computer or desk working on a new project. While not designing or taking care of her family, she can be found reading a book, brainstorming ideas, or in the kitchen making a mess. Erica is inspired by handmade things, vintage and retro character art, graphic design, and really just about everything on pinterest such as costumes, interior design, etc. You can find out more about Erica and her work on her site, www.ericahite.com.

Lucy Banaji

Illustrator, Surface Designer

I’m Lucy an illustrator and surface designer living and working in the UK.

Read Full Bio
My background’s in fine art and I studied at Central St. Martin’s in London. Nowadays I’m most happy equipped with a micro pen, a blank sheet of paper and a scanner. I love bright colours and simple shapes, but I also love to look at and draw the tiny detail in things.

Living in a big city there’s inspiration all around – from the hustle and bustle of the streets to the tranquillity of museums and secondhand bookshops. When I’m not in the city I’m usually outdoors climbing rocks or studying the wildlife, which is another great source of inspiration for me.

Sabina

founder

My name is Sabina and I live in Germany. I am freelance graphic designer.

Read Full Bio
Some time ago I found myself increasingly attracted to digital designs with a hand-drawn look. I think using mixed media (bringing paper drawings to the digital environment) is brilliant. Since I could not find such graphics for my own projects, started to draw them myself.

I am the founder of The Ink Nest. It started as a small shop on Etsy and has grown beyond my expectations.

I design websites, logos, banners at Design Garden.

Rhian

Designer, Illustrator

My name is Rhian, and I am a graphic designer and illustrator.

Read Full Bio

I started drawing at a very young age. My love for drawing and illustration led me to a master's degree in art and graphic design. I worked in the corporate world and also at a DC think tank as a graphic designer before I started my own business in 2009. I love what I do now, and it does not really feel like work.

I seek inspiration from all things around me, like vintage photographs, impressionist paintings, and nature scenes. I also like to bring fresh and unique color combinations to add a personal touch to my designs.

I currently live in Baltimore with my daughter, husband, cat and dog. When I am not working, I spend my spare time reading art and history books, cooking, playing the piano, and taking long walks with my husband and daughter.

My background is in Fine Art, and I taught Visual Art for several years before taking on my own business at the end of 2011. I am grateful to have found the world of pattern design, where all my interests have fallen into place.

Throughout my work I love pairing simple shapes and naive renderings with strong color palettes. I am always inspired by retro design & architecture, vintage books and fabrics, and children's drawings.
