About Me

Hi!  I'm Becky! I'm an illustrator, cat lady and lover of cute based in Austin, Texas. My shop is full of silly illustrations, buttons, lapel pins, jewelry and LOTS of cats!  

I come from a long line of entrepreneurs and artists. In 2006, I followed in their footsteps and opened up my Etsy shop! The shop has evolved over the last 10 years and it grew into a business that supported me through college and beyond. Being a Graphic Design major, I would design all day for class and all night for The Pink Samurai. 

After getting my BFA and keeping a 9-5 job while working on the shop in my spare time, I finally took the plunge and made it my full time gig. Now, my job is drawing fun things for people who love cats and cute stuff!

I can't believe The Pink Samurai has been bringing cuteness, geekery and kittens into people's homes for 10 whole years!  This little space on the internet has grown along with me and I'm so glad you found us!

When I'm not creating things for my shop, I'm hanging out with my amazing husband Andy, our son Emmit and our three cats: Turks, Sprinkles and Mooch. We love binge watching sci-fi TV shows and eating lots of pizza.  And if you bring me some Halo Top ice cream, you'll be my best friend ^_^
