I am a freelance designer and illustrator near Raleigh, North Carolina. I believe elephants can dance, mermaids exist and foxes sail the high seas. I am inspired by Disney Movies, nature and children’s books. My passion is creating unique characters for the children’s market. My characters often have stories to tell and I love bringing them to life with color, pattern and texture. All my designs are hand drawn and then converted to a digital format. My art has been published in Cloth, Paper Scissors Magazine and A World of Artist Journal Pages: 1000+ Artworks by Dawn Devries Sokol. My pattern designs were featured in Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine and the popular Print & Pattern blog. I was the winner of Make It In Design's Ultimate Portfolio Builder Printsource 2017 Competition. My work is available for licensing and buyouts. I also happily accept commissions. Original signed prints and other products are also available in my Etsy Shop. Please e-mail me for licensing inquiries or any other questions you may have at Lynda@lyndammetcalf.com.
