Mary Engelbreit

Mary Engelbreit, one of America’s best known and beloved artists/illustrators/designers, has had a storied career in both the business world and the art community, and her “eclectic traditional” artwork and style are recognized throughout the world.  Nearly 35 years ago, Mary launched her own greeting card company with a line of just 12 cards.  Today, Mary is the head of a highly successful business bearing her name, and is considered the country’s premier designer and artist of lifestyle products. Her signature art appears on thousands of items, including books (design, gift, children’s, cooking, home, and art), calendars, stationery, greeting cards, fabric, crafts, medical scrubs, kitchen accessories and other home décor items. Her style is more widely recognized than that of any other contemporary illustrator.

The licensed products bearing Mary’s artwork have grown to include nearly 6,500 items in all.   Mary’s fan base is over 85,000 and growing.  The real Mary Engelbreit is much like her work:  whimsical, nostalgic, playful, optimistic and more than a tad bit irreverent. Mary draws on her personal experiences as wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend to capture in her art those magic moments of daily life. Mary was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, where she currently lives with her family.
