Hi there! My name is Kelly Baika and I’m an illustrator and surface pattern designer currently residing in Pennsylvaina, USA.
I starting my career in Art over 10 years ago, sketching portraits and drawing anime characters. I sustained a back injury from a car accident in 2012, that left me homebound for 6 weeks. During my recovery period, I started doodling and sketching flowers as a form of relaxation. I began sharing my sketchbooks with friends and family who would always remark..”wow, I would love to see that pattern on a duvet cover” or “I would love a mug with your artwork on it!”.
Honestly, I had no idea surface pattern design was “a thing”. I thought all the patterns that I saw on fabric, was computer generated. It never occurred to me that, there was an actual human designing that art work. So, here I am, years later completely in love with creating art and surface pattens.
If you have any questions or are interested in a collaboration, please feel free to contact me anytime. I hope you enjoy your visit to my page and please visit again soon!
