Katja Ollendorff is a textile designer with a passion for bold color and pattern. She currently lives in San Francisco, but grew up living and traveling extensively overseas. From Helsinki to Paris, Rio to Istanbul—the many sights and places she has explored have contributed to her worldly sensibility and endless need to see more. Gleaning inspiration from these distant places—as well as from her own backyard in the Bay Area—has helped her designs exude a folky, yet modern feel with mass appeal.
Working in a variety of mediums from pen & ink, gouache and watercolor to Photoshop and Illustrator gives her designs great range and versatility. She has been featured on several design blogs and her artwork has been licensed with companies both in the United States as well as Europe.
