Erica is an illustrator and designer based in Providence, Rhode Island. She is super passionate about drawing and creating work that people can relate to or find happiness or inspiration from. She has been creating illustrations for Just Girl Project since October of 2019. Colorful, quirky, and experimental illustrations and lettering are her specialty. She also loves the color pink, drinks too much coffee, works for a greeting card company by day, is constantly binging TV shows (most recently Money Heist on Netflix...omg SO good), and lives for long walks with her pomapoo, Bella.
I was born in Florida but grew up in Los Angeles. Sports and art have always been a big part of my life. When I wasn’t going to gymnastics practice, I was teaching myself fashion design/sketching. A little more about me is that I leave the beach, being with my friends and family, and watching movies! Currently I am studying Communications. Media has been a big part of my life growing up and why I’m so happy to be a part of The Just Girl Project. I get to show off my creative side, while still being part of the day to day operations. The messages we share definitely resonate with what I’ve gone through and I’m touched that I get to help share them with others!

Hi there! My name is Sophie and I’m an illustrator based out of Indianapolis, IN. By day, I’m a Content Marketing Strategist and by night, I’m the girl behind Simply Sophie Designs! I graduated from Butler University in 2019 with a degree in marketing, but I’ve always had a love for creating things and being artistic. I’m also a huge fan of Gilmore Girls and Dawson’s Creek and my favorite food is hands down, pulled pork nachos. I started illustrating in college, but I never knew how important to me a “hobby” could become. My hope is that my illustrations always spread positivity and make people feel seen and heard!
Hi, I’m Sophie Kate! I’m a full time student studying communication design at the University of Vermont with a love for illustration, typography, and pretty much any other creative venture I can get my hands on. When I’m not creating, I spend my time roller skating, doing yoga, and drinking copious amounts of coffee—it’s all about balance, right? You can find more of me on instagram @sophiekatecreative
Hi my name is Jeanne pronounced like Genie just like the Aladdin movie, which is also one of my fave movies. I have created stitch kiss which is my safe space to let out all my creative thoughts and bring them to life. I have always wanted to work for myself and empower others to follow their dreams and goals. My clothing is all hand embroidered making each design unique and special for the person wearing it. The uniqueness of it all makes everyone feel special in their own way. I hope one day for Stitchkiss to grow and to continue to inspire people.
In Loving Memory
