Behind the Pins

Justine (she/her) is an illustrator and a one-woman shop from New York with her cat assistant, Peach. She started designing because she loves the idea of sharing her tiny pieces of art with other people in a more tangible way. Some of Justine's designs are inspired by her childhood, growing up in a Filipino household, surrounded by old Singer sewing machines and danish butter cookie tins filled with needles and thread. She also loves to create items based off of the little things that make her happy: films, books, forest findings, tea and croissants.

She hopes that she gets to continue to explore, experiment, and design. But, more than anything, Justine hopes that her work inspires the same sense of comfort and nostalgia for you that it does for her.
