The Maker:

"Boygirlparty® is a distinctive collection of quirky and useful gifts created by me, Susie Ghahremani – an award-winning illustrator and graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design.

I love to create functional objects using my illustrations to help people bring art, music, nature and joy into their homes and daily life. I began making and selling Boygirlparty® goods in 2001 as a student at RISD when I drew an owl and silkscreened it onto t-shirts. I gained an audience through art shows and local markets like the Renegade Craft Fair and the Bazaar Bizarre, and in 2005 became one of Etsy's first shops!

Since then, my artwork and Boygirlparty has taken me on a wild ride – illustrating for Hello Kitty, Martha Stewart, T-Mobile, Target, and many others; having my homemade stationery appear in the pages of Real Simple, BUST Magazine, and on Daily Candy and BoingBoing; having my work appear in shops internationally; and igniting design trends throughout the industry.

Here I am – and my love for creating new and beautiful illustrated objects into the world has not let up. So, I'm so glad you found me!"
