Betsy Siber,  illustrator and surface pattern designer

I’m Betsy, a creative, hard-working lady who calls the beautiful Chicago, Illinois home. I create art for children and color-loving adults with quirky characters, bold midcentury-inspired shapes and hand-drawn lines. 

Becoming a parent in 2010 opened my eyes to the amazing markets of modern children’s books, children’s clothing and children’s products. I had so many “Wow, I could draw that!” moments, that eventually I couldn’t ignore them anymore. Now I find inspiration in vintage cookbooks, midcentury design, modern quilts and generally anything my girls are delighted by. My favorite time to work in is the evenings when the house is quiet and I can settle in on the couch with a cup of tea and my ipad. 

I am an exclusive designer with Michael Miller Fabrics and would love to work with great companies on children’s products, books, home decor and stationery. I thrive under pressure and am dynamite with deadlines. Let's chat!
