Kristen Adam is an Illustrator and Print & Pattern Designer based in the beautiful city of San Francisco. What inspires her most is finding magic in the seemingly ordinary. When she's not wandering the woods looking for wildflowers, she loves star gazing, reading scifi/fantasy novels, and doing tarot card readings.


Kristen's illustrations have been featured on kids and baby bedding, swaddle sets, backpacks, rugs, pajamas, beach towels and more at Pottery Barn Kids and West Elm Kids. She has also illustrated several books for Slumberkins, which aim to support children and families in building emotional wellness. Kristen's first traditionally published children's book Secrets of the Forest will be release by Neon Squid in October 2023.

Kristen would love to work with you!
