Lynda M. Metcalf

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
