Courtney Beth Keller started drawing and painting early in life, and studied printmaking and mixed media including photography and painting at the Kansas City Art Institute. She spent many years working in-house in production houses, learning the ins and outs of printmaking on a commercial scale, and interfacing with the creative arms of many large and small companies. While working in commercial printing, she always kept a small corner of her home devoted to creativity, including a small 1-color silkscreen setup and sewing area where she would print and sew custom bags, clothing and other accessories under her label Peace Boutique. While living in Austin Texas, she participated in the Blue Genie Art Bazaar, selling handmade products at her booth.
In 2011, she went freelance full-time for the first time, illustrating the first in a series of three children’s books under the Stellybird brand, and transitioning her brand from Peace Boutique to One Little Printshop. Over the next several years, Courtney invested huge focus and time to further her illustration and design skills, taking courses online and in 2015, joining the Finch & Foxglove art collective. She has had an illustration included in Uppercase Magazine’s 2016 calendar, her llama pattern was one of the winners in Spoonflower’s llama design competition, and she won a Sakura lettering contest. 2016 is busier than ever and Courtney is thrilled to have had a wonderful first time at Surtex with the Finch & Foxglove collective (booth 543).
Courtney licenses and sells her illustrations and patterns, and loves working with companies and clients around the world. Please get in touch if you’re interested in licensing, seeing more of Courtney’s work, or hiring her for custom illustration or creative consulting.
