Kelly Parker Smith owns Hello World Paper Co, a stationery & stamp design studio. She is now also (of course) pursuing surface pattern design!

Kelly Parker Smith is a retired third grade teacher who had a big dream to make pretty things and help people in need.

She creates all of the designs herself working with pen and ink, typography, watercolor, and pattern design. Kelly lives in Belleville, IL (20 minutes outside of St. Louis, MO) with her husband, three boys, and their rescue kitten, Katniss.
