CANDACE J METZGER
Hello! I am a Los Angeles based artist, designer and creative spirit with a passion for dreaming up and illustrating magical characters, creating designs for consumer products & stationery, designing unique products & toys, developing innovative packaging, and have a deep love of painting, photography, collage and storytelling. I have fifteen + years professional art & design experience and use Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign as well as traditional art and illustration techniques on a daily basis. 
As an in-house designer, I have worked as the Senior Design Director at Clementine Paper Inc., Art Director at Punch Studio, and Packaging Designers for both Mattel &  Hasbro. As a freelance artist, i've worked for large to small companies, assisting with branding, packaging, and creative concepts for all sorts of products. 
To keep my design work fresh and innovative, I feed my  imagination by creating artwork in my studio, exhibiting my paintings in numerous solo and group shows, collaborating with my artist sister Miss Mindy, designing vinyl toys & characters, and writing & illustrating my own children’s books and stories. All of these personal and professional experiences have provided me with a powerful mix of expertise and imagination that fuels my career, as well as makes me a great creative asset to companies wanting exciting and new ideas for their products.
