Lori Frost, Founder
Lori has lived in seven states, and some of them multiple times, but Utah is where she calls home. She’s mostly a homebody but loves some good girl time and spending Saturdays on the lake with her family. She has four children and has been married to her high school sweetheart for 16 years (it’s not as perfect as it sounds... just ask her about some of their high school breakups).
While working toward her degree in vocal performance, Lori started teaching herself how to use Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. She learned how to design patterns and quickly fell in love with the process. She's now been a Surface Pattern Designer for more than a decade! Lori is experienced in creating designs for wallpaper, fabric, swimwear, art, digital products, and tech accessories. Her designs have been selected and sold by Anthropologie, Nordstrom, West Elm, Minted, Casetify, and more.
As a self-taught artist and entrepreneur, she’s passionate about education. She loves encouraging other artists to become more business minded in what they do so they can build a career doing what they love.
Tasha Brown, Founder
Tasha, a native of Kansas, is a self-proclaimed Oreo addict and a lover of all things style. She graduated in Social Work and has spent the last 10 years working at homeless and refugee shelters, and fighting to continue efforts for trafficking awareness in her state of Utah.
Philanthropy has been a big part of Tasha’s life, but it wasn’t until after getting married that her passion for interior design surfaced. She has spent the last several years creating beautiful spaces and has been featured on numerous websites. Her experience with social media has facilitated a variety of brand partnerships, affiliate programs, and networking opportunities with other influencers.
Tasha has been married for 15 years to her basketball-loving husband, has four kids, and enjoys family time, girls nights, creating, and shopping the aisles of Target.
