About Claudine Hellmuth
Hello! I'm Claudine Hellmuth! I'm a full-time illustrator who loves to create whimsical favor boxes, invites, cards and printable kits for you to download, print and make!
Each design begins with sketches and line drawings; next I play with color and pattern (more polka dots please!), add in a lot of paper folding, a little experimentation, and finally a few late nights for good measure!
My work has been featured in The New York Times, on The Martha Stewart Show, HGTV, HSN and The DIY Network. My books and gift product designs have been sold in retail stores such as Michael's, Target and TJ Maxx. I’ve been thrilled to illustrate for companies like Smart Car, Capitol Records and publications such as The Saturday Evening Post.
I live in Washington, DC with my husband Paul and our very spoiled pets. When I’m not covered in paper, glue and tape, I’m walking our dog Maggie, reading a book or enjoying an afternoon nap with our very fat cat, Mabel!
