Hi! I’m Ellen and I like making illustrations and designing cool stuff in sunny Los Angeles. Many of my designs are influenced by my love of bright colors, Mid-Century design, and vintage treasures. If I’m not working on my own I’m collaborating with the Clover Scouts, an illustration collective where my friends and I make fun products to showcase our work. In my free time I enjoy pub trivia, watching old movies, and visiting my favorite thrift stores and flea markets.
