One of my very first memories is of being deeply frustrated that I had to use a brown magic marker to draw the mermaid I was working on… as opposed to the ideal purple marker I did not have. I also remember that I was wearing a diaper when this happened. So you could say I’ve been an artist for as long as I can remember.
I spent my childhood sketching constantly. In high school I studied fashion illustration during the summer at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and in college I majored in Studio Art and Art History.
I founded Inslee By Design during my sophomore year at Washington & Lee University as an outlet for my love of illustration. I turned my sketches into a note card design business and ask my sorority sisters to help spread the news. That same winter I introduced my first yearly calendar… and the rest is history!
I now live in New York City where I paint, blog and sample the city’s vast selection of croissants one patisserie at a time.
