Colleen lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota US. She is a Product Designer in charge of the concepting, art, and design for kids home products, she absolutely loves what she does. In her 12 years as a creative, she has had experience in branding, advertising, illustration design, and beyond! When she's not chasing her two sons around, she loves creating lettering and illustrations to post to her Instagram account. (​@cmbringle​)

What do you include in your daily routine to practice self care? I make sure I have some quiet time by myself. It can be really hard to find time with a full time job and being a mum but It's so important to slow down and take care of yourself.

What or who inspires you? My life. I use my experiences, my personality and personal illustration style to find inspiration. We can all bring a unique view on finding inspiration by just looking at our own lives.

Do you ever suffer with self doubt and if so, how do you overcome it? Absolutely! When I find myself comparing myself to others I stop and focus my attention on what my strengths are and what makes me unique.

What impact do you hope your work has on people? I want my art to bring joy to others. I use humor, bright colors and positive, uplifting messages in my work to reinforce that mission.

Where can we see more of your work? Instagram: @cmbringle and Colleenbringle.com
