Featured Tile Artist - Neely Daggett

Each season we feature a different Illustrator's work on our homepage. This summer the artist is Neely Daggett. Neely is a children's book illustrator and graphic designer based in Portland, Oregon. She has been lucky to work on projects ranging from polished corporate design to colorful children's books. Her background in layout design and eye-catching illustration style make her projects stand out. Contact Oregon's Illustrator Coordinator if you would like to be featured:
