Shelley Brant is an illustrator and designer whose passion lies in whimsical character design. Born in Kalona, Iowa, she currently resides in Dallas, Texas, with her husband, daughter, and two very spoiled pugs. She loves snowy days, fancy coffee, mid-century design, James Taylor songs, and every shade of green. A love of picture books inspired Shelley to start exploring illustration after a career in product design. After receiving a degree in art and a long corporate career as an in house product designer, she has gone on to provide trend direction and illustrations for a number of manufacturers and retailers. Shelley's work can be found on all kinds of seasonal decor, kids crafts, picture books, classroom supplies, stationery, and greeting cards.
