Hello! I’m Tonia Dee!
(In case you’re curious, my name is pronounced “Tawn-yuh.”)
I’m a surface pattern designer and illustrator - born and raised in the Midwest, with a California soul, and currently living abroad with illustrator husband and toddler daughter in Prague.
I have an excitable personality and an affinity for the playful and whimsical. I especially enjoy designing for active, curious, nature-loving feminists. My bright and energetic designs began as a creative outlet influenced by daily life with my sweet and mischievous young daughter. I strive to create designs and illustrations that reflect the budding interests and big personalities of the little ladies in my life.
Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the cyber world!
