Jill O'Connor

Cheltenham, United Kingdom

One day Jill decided to change her life. She gave up her 9 to 5, sold everything she owned and flew to India on a one-way ticket. That is when she discovered a world of patterns and color. Today, she lives in the English Cotswolds creating beautiful hand drawn and painted repeats, many times using the flowers from her own garden.

Danika Herrick

Boston MA United States

Danika's background is in Interior Design. Decorative Painting led her to her passion of Textile and Wallpaper Design. She describes her style perfectly, "Imagine if Palm Beach and New England got hitched and had a chinoiserie baby." Danika has definitely found the secret sauce thanks to this “classic with a twist” aesthetic and an eye for design.

Michael Zindell

Salem MA United States

This seasoned design ninja has found a knack for translating trends and ideas into make-able, sell-able, covert-able products. Michael has worn many design team hats, which means he can work as a team player, team leader, and rogue designer. It must have been those 17 years he spent working in the home decor, housewares, and gift ware industries that prepared him for his ability to create the pretty cool designs we now see on Spoonflower.
