Hello!  My name is Jill McDonald.

I’m an illustrator & surface designer who recently added "author" to my bag of tricks!
My work is bright, bold, energetic & fun.  My favorite color is rainbow.  (can you really pick just one)?
I live in Kansas City, Missouri with my Chilean husband, Antonio (who also happens to be my business partner), our son Luca & our dog Sophie.

I graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1998 with a degree in textile design.
I have worked for Gap design headquarters as a print stylists, then at Hallmark Cards as an illustrator.
With the dream to go out on my own I started Jill McDonald Design in 2004.
Since then I’ve worked on a wide array of products with some of the top companies around.
(Lucky me!)

I’m passionate about art and design and I am constantly making something.

Building collections & concept development are some of my favorite things.

Hope you enjoy taking a look around!
