Hello, I'm Kellie!

I'm a freelance graphic designer and illustrator, mom and puppy dog lover.  The Two Pooch Paperie shop began in 2010 when, armed with years of experience in both the social expressions and marketing industry, I decided I needed a shorter work commute. All of my designs and illustrations are created out of my home in Lakewood, Ohio (a suburb of Cleveland).

I hold a BFA in Visual Communications from Kendall College of Arts and Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan and a BFA in English from Michigan State University.  I have been working as a Graphic Designer on stationery and invitations since 2003 for companies such as Design Design, Inc. and American Greetings.  More recently, I held a position with a marketing/design studio, creating print materials for both large and small businesses.  While I still enjoy the marketing end of Graphic Design, my true love is designing stationery and invitations.

The name came to be while on a road trip with my husband and our two lab mixes, Molly and Baxter. It had a good ring to it, so I went with it.  Sadly, we said goodbye to Baxter in 2013 but his spirit is still alive in the office of Two Pooch Paperie.  And Molly is still here to make sure biscuits get distributed every morning.

This truly is my dream job and I look forward to working with you!
