Sparky & Marie is a Los Angeles-based creative brand that specializes in surface pattern design. Our designs are energetic and fun-loving, with all-over prints and iconic graphics inspired by the colors of every day life. Anything from flowers found in the garden, travels to faraway places or colors from a vintage scarf are inspiration for the patterns and textures we create.
Sparky & Marie was established by graphic designer, Michelle Beilner, in April of 2010, and was lovingly named for her grandparents who always inspired passion, happiness and a tongue-in-cheek outlook on life. Our work is featured in Print & Pattern Kids by Bowie Style, and is currently licensing designs for stationery, scrapbooking, giftwares, home goods, and bolt fabric.
Founder, graphic designer and resident boss-lady of Sparky & Marie, Michelle Beilner has spent the last decade developing brands for a range of boutique clients from start-ups to larger companies. Originally from Chicago, Michelle moved to Los Angeles after receiving her BA in Graphic Design from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Along with her work in graphic design, Michelle is no stranger to a crafting studio, and often finds inspiration from textile printing, collage and quilting techniques. When she’s not busy designing, juggling two silly kids or dreaming up new uses for washi tape, Michelle can be found strolling the streets of Los Angeles with her family in tow--hopefully with donuts and coffee in hand!
