I’m Kelsea Rothaus, a multidisciplinary designer and illustrator living in Washington, the state.

Currently, I’m working as a full-time graphic designer on a marketing team at a not-for-profit to support my hobbies and dog. My specialty is illustrative design and storytelling—keeping the big picture in mind while packing in the detail.

I make a pretty good night owl and spend a lot of time painting when I’m off the clock. I draw on many years of experience sketching and observing animals to capture organic details and illustrate the merciless nature of the wild.
