I’m Lydia, the creative behind The Illustrated Life. It all started in 2016 with the idea of making pretty art to celebrate all our favorite things. Since then, I’ve drawn ideas from travel and fashion, but sometimes the inspiration comes from close to home. From Notre Dame to the shores of Lake Michigan to the skyscrapers of Chicago, beauty and adventure is everywhere, waiting to be found. 

Since the start, original custom commissions have been our customers' favorite way of preserving memories and bringing their ideas to life on paper, creating lasting mementos that will last for generations and celebrate life's big (and little) occasions.
