Hi there, my name is Nicole LaRue, but some folks call me Cole or Rue. I definitely have one of the best jobs ever. I get to spend every day drawing and coming up with super fun designs.
I feel insanely lucky because that's all I've ever wanted to do. My creativity has helped me work with some amazing folks. I've authored a couple of books, designed really fun product lines, and illustrated cool projects for organizations like, Compendium, Inc., Modern Twist, Kowallaa, Basic Grey, Creating Keepsakes Magazine, Tallu-lah Greeting Cards, KUER and KUED, Crate Paper, Doug Fabrizio, The Good Mama, Die Cuts, Inc., Imaginisce,Axis41, Hint Creative, Red Desert Candy Company, American Crafts and Tiny Prints (check out some of the work here: nicolelarue.typepad.com or larueandco.com). I love to work. And I love what I do!

She has worked for clients including Hardie Grant, Hand in Hand Soap, Blue Apple Books, The British Heart Foundation, Rokit, Time Out, Woodmansterne, Hallmark, American Greetings and Moo.
My name is Rebekka Mann Seale, and I'm an artist and illustrator in Nashville, Tennessee.
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 is a designer and illustrator living in sunny San Diego.
I’m Lucy an illustrator and surface designer living and working in the UK.
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.

My name is Rhian, and I am a graphic designer and illustrator.
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 name is Sarah Betz, I am originally from Germany and live in Paris where I founded my studio for children's design and illustration.
I am a freelance surface pattern designer and illustrator based in Nashville, Tennessee, where I live with my husband and young son.
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.
I am a freelance illustrator and visual artist based in Sofia, Bulgaria.
Hello, I'm Reika Hunt, an American artist and surface pattern designer currently based in the beautiful city of Kyoto, Japan.
I studied illustration at California College of Arts, then later cartoon-manga at Kyoto Seika University. I love the aesthetic of classic art and design, but try to bring a new, fresh perspective to my designs. I like to gather inspiration from my surroundings and everyday life. Apart from drawing and painting, I also love music and sewing.
