KIMBERLY ELLEN HALL / NOTTENE
Kimberly Hall is one half of the wallpaper studio Nottene, pronounced [nuh-ten-uh], which she runs with her husband out of their Philadelphia row home with the help of two little girls and a lazy cat. Her illustration work comes from a practice of storytelling through drawing, and pushing the boundaries of imperfection in her painting and drawing.
Kim earned her degree in textiles from Central St. Martins in London, and she is the first year faculty on the MFA in Illustration Practice program at Maryland Institute College of Art/MICA. She has drawn or designed for companies like Chronicle Books, Coach, Hussein Chalayan, Anthropologie, Brooklyn Industries, and Crate & Barrel. Her first illustrated book (about food!) will be coming out with Abrams this fall (!).
