Hartsough is hard to spell, and sometimes hard to pronounce. 
"Candi Harts" is Candice Hartsough, a "super cool" illustrator. Ok maybe she's not actually super cool BUT she knows what she's doing and is ready to turn your ideas into works of art. Her style is simple, yet attention and care are paid to small details. Her color palettes are bright and inviting, and her expressive characters take center stage. She is inspired by relief printmaking, needlework of any kind, and every pet or child she has ever met. She currently lives in Indianapolis, Indiana with her husband, three children, and little dog.
