Hi there! My name is Paige Meredith Ray. 

My friends call me Paige and my adorable four-year old calls me, "mommy."
I have an inexplicable penchant for the sparkle emoji. ✨


I am a self-taught illustrator living and working in the beautiful Ozark hills of Northwest Arkansas. Days spent in the studio consist of making both digital art on my iPad and more traditional art with my absurdly large collection of watercolor, acrylic paint, gold foil, micron pens, color pencils, as well as another ridiculously massive collection of audiobooks. {Because I love getting lost in a story almost as much as I love making my own. And both at the same time are my happy place.} ✨

Encouragement. ✨

That’s what I want to see more of in the world. To me, encouragement is the physical presence of love within a space. Encouragement makes the world better by reminding us that we each have a gift to with which to make the world sparkle. To put more encouragement into the world {whether through a reminder that you can stick on your computer or a class where you can explore your creativity} : that’s why I’m here. ✨

Alongside my shop, I also create editorial illustrations, commissioned work {booked until January 2020}, and am developing a surface design portfolio.

Have any more questions? Please contact me. ✨

Thank you for taking the time to explore my site. ✨
