It all started in 2000. Well, to be fair, we probably need to go back a bit further to when nine year old Kelle Boyd was carting around sketches of her own line of children’s clothing and wedding dresses in her backpack. Fast forward to over a decade later, Kelle had long since traded in her colored pencils for a career in public policy. While working for the Mayor of Nashville (and a bit stressed), Kelle’s childhood dream was rekindled when she went to a local craft store to purchase art supplies as a stress reliever. Two years later, Kelle took a step of faith and launched Ann Kelle Designs.
Her fresh and bright designs immediately caught the attention of the industry. A week following her debut, her designs were being presented to Target.
These days you can find her fun and colorful designs on the shelves of boutiques and stores, as well as Barnes and Noble and Target.
Simple, sweet, and sassy. Designs inspired by all that we have always known and loved…from dad’s tie, spring flowers, ice cream, our favorite rock band, and even the sweaters we wore in the second grade. All the things we loved as kids.
