About the author

Classically trained in graphic design and illustration, Julia Murray began her career illustrating at Huffer before spending ten years in London working as an art director for publishers such as Harper Collins and Hardie Grant. This experience has given her a versatility of style, a strength in combining typography with illustration, and a designer’s eye for composition and detail. Julia’s work reflects a love of color with a touch of femininity.

Shelby Warwood is based in east Austin, where she can often be found working away with her Boston Terriers, Maxwell & Penny Lou, by her side. She loves traveling and gets out of town whenever possible. In her free time, you can find her seeking out the perfect pastry, walking her dogs along the river, thrifting, or sipping a cocktail, and reading on the patio.
