Yours, exclusively – so it better be good!

Custom art is a total reflection of you, as it should be. So naturally, you deserve top-notch quality. Think of me as your personal stylist. We wouldn’t leave the room until you looked drop-dead gorgeous—why shouldn’t your art be the same?

  • Looks Matter

    First impressions count. Some say you can’t judge a book by its cover, but let’s be honest, we still do. Sorry, I don’t make the rules! But I can make your cover the best one around.

  • On Time

    You’ve got places to go, people to see. I’ll make sure your art is at your side when you need it–or before! No one wants to sweat the details last minute. You need to look stellar, head to toe, come launch day!

  • Style Guide

    Selecting illustration styles can be downright daunting. I'll help you hone in on the perfect design style that best suits you or your brand. The good news is, I’m an artist of many different styles. We’ll curate the best look, tailor-made to make you sparkle.

I know how frustrating it feels

to not get the custom art you signed up for. No one likes surprises (er, bad surprises). But I won’t rest until you walk away all smiles, beaming with excitement because you’re rockin' the best artwork in town.

    “Angela went above and beyond to design some of the players' gifts for the PGA Ryder Cup at Whistling Straights, Wisconsin. As hosts of the U.S. Team, we wanted to gift something unique that highlighted the region. Angela designed such a beautiful range of products that it was hard to narrow down our favorites!”

    Sandi Morris, U.S. Olympic Silver Medalist for Pole Vault

    “I can’t speak highly enough of Angela and her work. I came across her art while scrolling through Instagram, and was immediately struck by her unique style. I am absolutely obsessed with the three pet portraits she painted for me! Her choice of colors is my favorite part and I’m glad I gave her the freedom to paint them how her mind's eye saw them. The shades of yellow, pink and aqua pastels make me want to put on a sundress and dance in a field of flowers! I will cherish my pet paintings for the rest of my life!˝

Research + planning

Once you’ve shared your illustration goals with me and are ready to hit the ground running, I’ll curate some dreamy color palettes and style boards to help set the perfect tone for your project. We’ll sift through all the inspiring choices, and nail down the one that speaks best to your aesthetic.

Lets Go

Design development

I’ll dive straight in and start developing sketches to give us a basic framework. We’ll keep them loose and brainstormy, so we can easily make any adjustments. Think of the design development (or sketch phase) like drafting a blue print for your house. We need to spend time creating this foundation to make sure we get things right, so we have little to few changes later on. This will save us time and you money. Rest assured, you will get plenty of progress photos along the way.

Ready to Collaborate

Implementation + production

At this point, I am wrapping up your illustrations and making any remaining tweaks to the final artwork. Depending on your scope of work, I will provide you with digital files, products, or original art. I will make sure you are 110% satisfied with your custom artwork. Nothing excites me more than delivering final art to you that makes you say, “Ahh! I’m so glad I did this!”
