HELLO! I'M JEANINE MURCH (but you might know me by my maiden name, Jeanine Henderson!)

I'm a freelance illustrator & designer specializing in art and hand lettering for magazines, books, advertising, invitations, stationery, and surface design. With a background of over 10 years past experience designing and art directing children’s books, I bring a unique integration of image and type to all my projects.

I recently relocated back to my hometown of Pittsburgh after spending 13 inspiring years living and working in NYC. I now live with my 3 favorite guys—my husband, our 7 month old son, and our lovable pup, Freddie Pickles—and I work from my sunny home studio where I can take plenty of breaks for puppy love and baby snuggles. I have a fascination for all things strange and wonderful, especially those found in Coney Island and the vibrant culture of New Orleans.
