Amy Ruppel Portland
Amy lives in beautiful green Portland, Oregon, where she works in her studio as a full-time artist, illustrator and surface designer. She was born and raised in rural Wisconsin, where she was left mostly to her own imagination, always dragging a stack of paper and a slew of pencils and crayons to her fort in the woods. Color and shape have always intrigued her, and to this day, is still searching for that perfect oval, that perfect orange-yellow and grassy green. Amy has worked with the good folks at Uniqlo, Blik!, Aladdin, Ace Hotel-Portland, Nike, Adidas, Converse, Burton Snowboards, Gnu Snowboards, Target, Kid Robot, Tamara Henriques, The Mercy Corps, design*sponge, Klutz, Vigo Cards, Modern-Twist and many others. Amy Ruppel was the 2007 US Artist for the Oilily Artisan Series ( Netherlands).
