donna grethen illustration

collage, pen & ink illustrations and hand lettering


I was living in New York, working as a designer who wanted to do illustration. Now I live in Berkeley, and I’m an illustrator who still loves design, but gets to work with traditional pen & ink, cut paper collage and digital media. Some of the clients I’ve worked with include The New York Times, The Boston Globe, Hallmark, Papyrus, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Pfizer, Target, Little & Company, Martha Stewart Living, Notebook (AU), Harper San Francisco, Purina, Yoga Journal, Vegetarian Times, Family Circle, American Greetings, Meredith Corporation, Sagetopia, Virginia Poverty Law Center and The Chicago Tribune/Tribune Media Services.

My work can be seen in The Society of Illustrators Annuals 44 and 53, Print, Communication Arts and the AI 23 website.
