About the Artist



Dottie & Caro features the work of Sara Showalter, an illustrator, surface pattern designer, and hand lettering artist from California. Her work is heavily influenced by her favorite things: road trips, national parks (and all of the creatures big and small within them), nature, history (especially vintage wallpaper and fabrics), and of course, everything fall-related. Having been an obsessive doodler since she was a kid, her iPad and Apple Pencil have become her favorite go-to tools. Her goal is to create work that hopefully brings a smile to your face.

You can find her work on Zazzle, Spoonflower, Minted, and Society6 as well as in her Etsy shop.

Fun fact: The name Dottie & Caro comes from taking a playful spin on the names of Sara’s grandmothers, Dorothy and Carolina. During a class where business names and branding were discussed, one of the suggestions was to use the name of your grandmother. Since both of Sara’s grandmothers were awesome, she couldn’t choose just one. Thus, Dottie & Caro was born.
