email me: hello (at) noelkalmus.com

I’m an illustrator and designer based in Austin, Texas.

I was born and raised in Abilene, Texas, and fled to Austin as soon as I could. I graduated from Southwestern University in 2012 with a BFA in Painting.

Whether I’m working in colored pencil, gouache or Procreate, my work is fluid, textural and shows evidence of the artist’s hand.

My work celebrates strong women with an independent spirit. I also enjoy drawing cute animals, food, and cluttered rooms. I am constantly inspired by the beauty in the world, leading to a multitude of subjects in my work.

In Spring of 2019, I spent a month in Japan and have been hard at work since creating images from my journals and memories. I hope to self publish my drawings, journal entries, and photographs from this trip.

When I’m not making art, I enjoy cycling, going to the gym, gardening and tubing the river.

I am open to freelance illustration and licensing queries. Let’s work together!
