Up and Coming Designer: Mary Ellen Knight

Mary Ellen Knight is a new transplant to Spokane from Tennessee. Although she obviously isn’t new to art, she is new to Spokane so we thought an introduction was in order! Mary Ellen has a intricate style of illustration using painterly textures and bright, yet refined color palettes to express a range of emotions. Her visual metaphors are striking and reveal there is definitely something more going on beneath the surface. A skill that has landed her a handful of awesome book cover projects. Check out her website and look forward to seeing more of her work about town as I’m sure her style will find many new Spokane fans.
