Hi! My name is Carey Ruhl and this is my empire!
I create apparel, household and general surface design (patterns) to enliven your kingdom.
Please contact me if you are interested in licensing my designs.
Check out my blog, ‘Here I Am.’ for musing about life and pattern design.
When I am not creating designs I love upcycling clothing, reading and acting.

I love surface/fabric design as the intersection of art and everyday life. Art on your pillows or cell phone case or t-shirt is a way of expressing yourself to the world without having to say a word. Sometimes the patterns and images that we are attracted to evoke a need yet to be expressed or a side of our personality we keep under wraps. I want to give people a way to express that. I love texture and color. I wish for my designs to be textured and visually interesting, sometimes with a bit of humor, thus expressing myself fully as an artist.
