The Artist and her Muse

Our Team

In addition to Susan Bird, I'm fortunate to have three colleagues helping me move each design across the finish line. Many thanks to Kaitlynn Gaffney, Krista Jensen and Jean Beuoy. (They are, in fact, real people.)



Our "Playful Art with Heart" inspires people to tap into the joyful, loving parts of themselves. By spreading these feelings through our design work, we create ripples of positivity throughout the world.




Sue Sarah Gilbert - Artist & Owner

I’ve always been playful and mischievous. As a child growing up in Connecticut, I was caught crayoning on walls, sneaking outside at dawn, and watching the moon on the roof with my younger brother. I loved art from an early age. My doodles and sketches were full of imaginary characters in fantasy worlds. Dr. Seuss and Howard Pyle were - and are - my art heroes. 

I live on a lake near Seattle where I work and play every day in my studio, creating whimsy and joy for you!

Susan Bird - Muse

Susan is imaginary. I know, roll your eyes… She's been with me for ages. Floating on the currents of creativity, Susan feeds me ideas non-stop. Both of us love words, bold designs, and bright colors. Both of us imagine a simpler world with lots of time to laugh and play. Though serious about our art, we can be VERY silly!
