Hi there, friend. We may have not met in person but kindred spirits? ...we most certainly have already become. Welcome to the studio. My name is Hope Johnson - in a four-word short version: I am a designer. To be more eloquent: I am an illustrator and surface pattern designer. I apply those illustrations to my line of wedding stationery and goods you’ll find here in the shop. I also illustrate and design surface pattern artwork for creatives and brands to manifest into products - be it paper, fabric, or the walls of your home.

In order to give this introduction its deserved depth, you must know that I wholeheartedly believe in the process driven aspect of art. I believe that, more often than not, you simply cannot quantify the process because it is, quite monumentally, the most important part. And in a true sense, I feel I’ve been working on the process my entire life - from my childhood summers spent on the gulf coast, from my inner wild child of a soul, from the accidental printmaking degree I found myself in during college ...hours upon years have translated into just me being able to title myself and say: I am a designer.

Do it for the process. A phrase coined by a favorite artist of mine, Emily Jeffords.

My virtual studio is my place to translate everything birthed in my actual studio - referred to by my little ones as “mama’s shop.” Whether it’s a new wedding stationery suite, an opportunity to teach, a launched collection of art, or patterns that find their way in the homes and life that inevitably design us, here I am.

And if you stick around long enough, you may get inky on your hands.
