Our Artists

Packaging can be meaningful, and we have been fortunate to work with talented local artists to bring some messages to life.  Reach out if you are a KY artist and interested in working with us. If you are looking for some help with a project, we would be happy to put you in touch with one of our artists.

Brad Praria

Brad Praria artist

I am a Visual Development Artist and Freelance Illustrator based in Versailles, Kentucky. My art is driven by unique storytelling: whether it be whimsical or intense, animated or realistic, close to home or is lost in space. While my work has no bounds, children’s Illustration is what I hold near and dear to my heart. I grew up knowing I wanted to live through the eyes of Walt Disney: to take what is real and twist it into more than just that. It is my goal to inspire children to see the beauty of the world through an artist’s eye and realize that, just as in nature, our ability to create is limitless."

Chelsea McConaha

Chelsea McConaha artist

Given that I am a licensed and practicing mental health therapist, my art is primarily influenced by mental health and its healing. Art is a creative coping skill, a way to recycle human suffering, and a means of hope. I also am inspired by nature, its symbolism of growth, and its seasons. I believe we need to respect and admire the seasons and growth of ourselves and others in this same way."

You throw cartoons, horror, sci-fi, hip-hop, thrash metal, and comic books into a blender and my art sensibilities will come rolling out like The Blob through a theater full of moviegoers."

Bryce Oquaye

My art is influenced by hip hop culture, comics/manga, and animation. It's all about the energy for me. The way I envision things always fit in those lanes, so I felt like it was all set in stone for me when I watched my first anime and listened to Wu Tang for the first time. Hip hop being a culture pivoted off our voices and experiences almost guaranteed it's presence in my life. I live it, so it leaks into my work in the way I convey motion and color.

Erica Cook

Erica Cook artist

In 2015 I launched my creative firm Concinnity by Erica, with a mission to create personalized and harmonious arrangements of letters and illustrations. My artistic focuses at this time are watercolor landscape paintings, digital illustrations, and hand lettering/signage at any scale. Most of my portfolio could be categorized as "celestial" or "whimsical". I really enjoy doing custom work and bringing my clients' vision to life, whether that's lettering a quote, designing a book cover, or painting a sunset. When I'm not painting in the studio, you can find me teaching hand lettering classes in the community. To discuss commissions, please email me at [email protected]"

Connor Query

Connor Query artist

At the moment, my art mostly consists of commissioned projects. It's rare for me to say "no" to a custom gift that someone has in mind. Whether it is a commission for a pet portrait, a unique idea for a mural, or designing a new logo for a startup company-- I like to think I can conform to all the needs of the customer no matter what. If I had to choose an artist that gets me motivated and inspired, without sounding too cliche, I've always loved the pop art created by Andy Warhol. I think, in a way, some of my techniques and blocked colors kind of reflect his style and pieces he created -- but with my own twist. I like that a gift I create for someone stands out visually and also personally with the message/memorial it might be for."
