about

I’m Kelli – an illustrator, graphic designer, fashion lover and craft connoisseur. I am the wife to a boy named Sam and momma to 2 little loves, Rylee and Cru. Welcome to my little corner of the internet.

A bit of history:

I was born in Chicago, but the California coast is where I’ve grown up and the only place I call home. I could describe myself as a lot of things, but creative and passionate are at the top of the list. I graduated from FIDM with a degree in product development and merchandising, and for 6 years, I worked as the head designer for a clothing company in San Diego.  When I wasn’t designing, I was honing my skills as an artist and illustrator….which I soon realized to be my true calling.

I started my blog in 2009 as a place to simply share my artwork, but over time, it has developed into something so much more – an extension of me and a piece of my heart.  It is a mix of all the things that define me and inspire me including art, fashion, family, crafts and good design.  Since becoming a mother in 2011, I have ventured into the role of a full time freelancer.  I love working with my clients in bringing their ideas to life.  Whether it be a new identity for their business, a custom designed invitation, or a personal illustration.  In November of 2014, I launched a long time dream: a children’s clothing line, inspired by my own kids, called Rylee and Cru.  Today, this growing business takes up most of my time and energy, and I am loving every second of it!
