I’m Molly Dalik Armstrong.
Welcome to Calico Star Studio!
I am a graphic designer, illustrator, textile artist and all-around crafty person who adores all things vintage and colorful. My design specialties are illustration, layouts, and branding, and I absolutely love playing with type and color palettes. My favorite items to photograph are products - especially textiles! I have a general understanding of HTML and CSS and enjoy the design and layout aspects of creating a website.
My style is whimsical, colorful, artsy, cozy, soft, & vintage-inspired. My designs are influenced by retro colors, children’s books, folk art, fairy tales, and antique textiles. I’m an old soul and I am passionate about finding imaginative ways to recreate traditional styles in my work. As a perfectionist, I pay close attention to details and pour everything I have into each project I create.
Behind the Name:
Stars have several special meanings to me. The Irish meaning of my name (Molly) is “Star of the Sea.” I am always drawn to calico fabric when working on textile & design projects, and I love vintage star quilts.
“He counts the stars and calls them all by name.”
~ Psalm 147:4
