Rachel Gresham is a pattern designer and illustrator from Nashville, Tennessee. She was graduated from Middle Tennessee State University with a BFA in painting in 2003. Then she discovered surface pattern design, and that was that.
Since launching her company in 2011, Rachel has created patterns for stationery, fabric, digital backgrounds, and scrapbook companies, as well as logos and other projects for private clients. She combines hand-drawn elements and naive renderings, often paired with bold color palettes. She strives for beautiful, joyful designs inspired by the great outdoors, old children’s books, and a good cup of coffee.
She composes new work in the deep nighttime after her husband and son are tucked into bed.
