Mindy Pierce was born and raised near the plateau in East Tennessee. She spent her childhood collecting geodes, traversing the woods and creeks, and painting the backs of turtles with nail polish (so she could find them again). What she observed in the patterns of nature influence her work to this day.
She was recruited by Hallmark Cards Inc. after finishing her MFA and spent over 20 years refining her skills and creating greeting cards, gifts, bags and wraps for Hallmark. Mindy has also illustrated children’s books and developed fabric collections for quilts.
When she’s not in her studio creating her next collection, you might see her hiking on a trail in the Smoky Mountains searching for new textures, plants or color palettes to inspire her next design.
