Jessica Swift is an artist and surface designer in Portland, Oregon who wants to fill the world with color, quirky + happy artwork, and vibrant patterns. She licenses her work to a variety of companies, including Case-Mate, Blend Fabrics, and TeNeues Publishing, and she also makes a wide variety of bright, patterned products in her own studio. Jessica also launched her first line of patterned rain boots in 2011, through a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the project. Her motto is majorly simple: Live Color to the MAX! Because when we surround ourselves with color + beauty, we start to love ourselves - and each other - just a little bit more.
