I grew up surrounded by artists, my grandfather was an illustrator and my mom an interior designer. I lived with a paintbrush or pencil in hand and went through one too many coloring books as a kid. I received my BFA in fashion design and spent my first few years out of school hustling through NYC working as a designer for multiple womenswear brands. A few years later I found myself packing up my things and following my then boyfriend, now husband, to Chicago where I began a short lived career in the tech industry. To make up for the lack of creativity in my day job, I spent my evenings and weekends painting and exploring watercolor and before I knew it, Painted By Pippa, a whimsical art print shop was born.

After getting engaged in 2017, I gravitated towards the idea of telling couples love stories through art and paper. I wanted my wedding stationery to tell the story of my husband and I, to make guests feel excited about our day and help them feel just a bit more connected to us. Not just ink on paper but a meaningful, joy filled experience that I’d look back on years from now and still appreciate. In the 5 years since then, I’ve had the honor of working with couples throughout the world on their wedding stationery, telling their story and sharing those moments with the ones they love. 

I currently spend my days chasing after our (almost) one year old son, Henry, and our pup Sammy while sneaking in as many paint sessions as I can during naptime.
