Chances are you’ll recognize her work, but if not, Lisa Congdon is a fine artist, illustrator, and designer you’ll want to get to know! I’ve been a fan of Lisa’s work for years. It’s bright, cheerful, and inspirational. Her work has been featured in numerous publications and she is the author of over 7 books! Her illustrations were featured in one of our last book club books, “Broad Strokes: 15 Women Who Made Art and Made History.” Getting a later start in the art world, Lisa is an amazing example of following your dreams and working hard for them. Make sure you download the book art she illustrated for us inspired by our very own “Craft the Rainbow!”

We hope you enjoy this inspiring look into Lisa Congdon’s creative process!

For the month of March we are featuring the lovely Kathryn Zaremba for our Illustrator interview! We actually attended graduate school together and it’s been such a joy to watch her career flourish! Recently some of her designs have been turned into the most gorgeous wallpapers that I am absolutely crazy for. Kathryn illustrated a beautiful print for our book club of the month, very appropriate for National Women’s History month. She is so talented and I hope you enjoy getting to know her a bit!

Illustrator Feature: Amelia Giller

Illustrator Feature: Amelia Giller

This week we are interviewing the talented Amelia Giller for our illustrator feature! We love her empowering illustrations and her focus on women. If you haven’t, make sure you check out the free print and book art she illustrated for this month’s book club! As I was browsing Amelia’s portfolio, I came across her illustrated honeymoon photos and immediately fell in love! She explains, “On my honeymoon with my husband in Europe, I realized that our photos together were either taken by strangers or awkward selfies. I wanted to capture our fun in Paris and Amsterdam from our point of view, so I took photos and illustrated our favorite places.” How genius is that?!

We took a peek inside her creative process and got a behind the scenes look at her workspace. We hope you enjoy this month’s illustrator feature!

Illustrator Feature: Jaqueline Diedam

Jaqueline DiedamFor this month’s illustrator feature we’re taking a look at the talented Jaqueline Diedam’s creative mind! Jackie is based in Cologne and graduated from Köln International School of Design, currently doing freelance illustration and design. I absolutely love Jaqueline’s style and could look through her work for hours. She also has some great insights on how to stay creative and avoid artistic slumps, which I really appreciated. Jaqueline often will illustrate her current scenery within a travel journal which I love! What an amazing way to preserve memories! She sells a variety of posters, stationery, and other items so make sure you check out her website to ogle over!
