Gonzales, LA, US


Mandy Porta is an illustrator and surface pattern designer based in Louisiana, United States. She has a passion for designing bright and cheery art for children’s products, especially those that inspire imaginations and foster creativity.

Before launching a business in surface pattern design, Mandy spent over a decade as a freelance graphic designer working directly with small businesses to design various marketing materials from logos and branding materials to brochures and websites.

After taking some time off to care for her two little girls, she realized her true passion for making joyful art. As a child of a talented and crafty stay-at-home mom, she grew up drawing and making things, but she had settled for a more reliable career in corporate graphic design. Her kids reignited her creative spirit and she now spends her days drawing, painting and illustrating. Her girls and seven nieces continue to be a source of inspiration, and sometimes she even incorporates their art into her designs to make them extra special.
