designer / illustrator
Allyson is a designer / illustrator on the Kid’s Greetings Team. She loves spending time with pals, making plush, hanging out with her two pups (Pickles and Kirby), and eating ice cream
Allyson grew up in Kansas City, visiting Hallmark often with her Pop (a Hallmark employee for more than 40 years). She moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin for art school and lived in the Brew City for about 10 years. She worked for a small online gaming company after graduating from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design with a BFA in video and animation.
Now she’s back in KC, and loves her life surrounded by so many awesomely talented, and creative artists here at Hallmark, who inspire and encourage her to never forget to be awesome every day.
