Christine De Carvalho
Christine De Carvalho is an illustrator and surface pattern designer based in sunny Southern California. Much of her work is inspired by her love of folk art, fairytales, and vintage children's books. Animals and nature are some of her favorite subjects to illustrate.
Christine studied Textile design at The Academy of Art in San Francisco, as well as the Studio Bercot in Paris France. Christine landed her first job as an in-house Textile Designer for John Galliano and later Christian Lacroix. She spent 6 years in Paris developing textile prints for Haute Couture houses, which was a dream come true. After relocating back to the states, Christine focused on her love of painting and illustration and starting designing greeting cards and licensing her work to major companies. Her art is whimsical, sweet, and puts a smile on your face. She loves vintage dresses, cats, and living on the west coast.
