In her fine art and illustrations for children’s books and kids’ fabrics, ceramics and paper goods, and unique designs for nonprofits, businesses and publications nationwide, Ceci combines wit and whimsy. Her fanciful illustrations are printed on wrapping paper and greeting cards sold in boutiques nationwide.

 

Ceci Bowman’s designs blend her lifelong love of hand-drawn and paper-cut images with computer-generated designs and patterns. “Growing up I always loved to draw, and cut out paper dolls. As a teenager I would often come up with my best drawings and ideas when I was supposed to be paying attention to something else. I still find myself drawing in the margins of my notebooks.” And Ceci’s designs still reflect the spontaneity of her teenage doodles. “My goal is that the final art file that I deliver to a client has the spontaneity and spur-of-the-moment quality of my original sketch. I love using the computer to expand my drawings and paper cuts into colorful illustrations and repeats that can be used on a wide range of products.”
