Hailey Parnell thinks that getting to draw kitty cats, poodles and alligators is a great way to make a living. Her illustrations and designs are bright and whimsical, with a flair for pattern and color. She finds inspiration in flowers from her garden, antique peppermint tins, vintage fabrics from grandma’s closet, and many other places. She works in traditional and digital paint, combining texture and color in a unique and contemporary style. Her “eye candy” can be found on greeting cards, gift bags and wrap, and even socks.
Hailey’s other joys include knitting, watching British costume dramas, prowling through thrift stores, and keeping up with three rambunctious children.
