About merry mack creative

Hello! I'm a designer and illustrator living in Portland, Oregon. Fun facts about me: My sign is Cancer, my Meyers Briggs is INFJ, and my favorite show is Game of Thrones. I have three young children who keep me busy and my husband who keeps me sane (well, my husband, red wine and the occasional half marathon). ;) I'm grateful to be a part of this talented community and appreciate your interest in my work!

You are so sweet, thank you for the nice comment. :) I honestly feel I am still trying to find my groove as well; I feel I struggle between liking to do soft florals versus colorful funky illustrations and can't seem to find the middle ground. I am loving what you are doing, keep up the awesome work! Ps - I see you have two little ones; me too - definitely keeps us busy ;) x
