About

Ink + Colour is an Illustration and Graphic Design studio based in Raleigh, North Carolina. All artwork is original, hand-illustrated and painted by Mandi Geiselman. 
The work I create aims to bring joy into people's lives and to leave them a little better than they were found. As an illustrator and designer, my work ranges from prints and buttons to logos and website designs. No matter the content of the work, I am to bring joy, wonder, and a sense of suspended disbelief.
So enjoy, stay a while and follow me on Instagram @inkpluscolour.  
Commissions available upon request.
