and custom illustrations. All products are illustrated, printed, packaged and made with love in Cleveland, OH. Today, B+T's products,

About The Artist

Lucy Williams is a Cleveland based artist and designer and the
Founder and Illustrator of Boundary & Thorn. After receiving her
BFA in Illustration from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 2013,
Lucy worked for several years with an advertising agency.
At the end of 2016, she decided to strike out on her own as
an independent freelancer. Lucy started making a new body
of work in 2015, but never thought it would turn into a business.
At her first job, she realized she missed creating work for herself.
In January of 2016 Lucy started selling her prints and greeting
cards at The Cleveland Flea and by August, Boundary & Thorn
was an official LLC.

Today, if she is not working in her home studio, you can find her
eating at one of Cleveland's amazing restaurants, organizing
anything she can get her hands, listening to a true crime podcast
or snuggling up with her two kitties.
