Hello! I’m Kimberly Sterling. I’m a chocolatier by day and a graphic artist by night making cute and quirky, sometimes geeky, almost always cat related illustrations. Most of my artwork, excluding fan art, can be purchased as prints, apparel, and home decor products through my shop, Hugh & West.


I draw inspiration from the things I’m most passionate about - nature, animals, star wars, science fiction, and super heroes, to name a few.


While I primarily create colorful and eclectic designs for Hugh & West, I also love designing logos, advertisements, and especially party invitations! I have had the privilege of creating artwork for bands, local businesses, and several weddings and special events.


When I’m not making candy or doodling in one of my thousands of notebooks, I enjoy reading sci-fi novels, listening to nerdy podcasts, and cuddling with my husband and cats while we binge watch Young Justice for the fortieth time.


At the end of the day, I just want to create fun designs that others will love to wear, decorate with, and treasure forever.
