Hi there.

Nice to meet you!

Welcome to Lori Krout Design where you can see samples of my illustration and surface design work, check out articles about various artist and illustrator topics and get in touch with me about licensing my designs.

At the beginning of 2016, I decided to turn my efforts toward illustration and surface pattern work full time and I love the creativity and joy I feel when I use my artwork in this way. Some things to know about me are that I love vibrant colors, I'm not the neatest person when I am painting, and I'm very glad for scanners and editing software that can magically clean things up and make my work all shiny and beautiful especially if I've dropped a blob of ink in the wrong place.

I hope you'll enjoy looking around here. Drop me a line or find me on one of my social channels and say hello if you stop by!
