Kirsten Ulve


Illustrator Kirsten Ulve hails from the town of Dubuque, Iowa. Her obsessions with fireworks, puppets, discotheques, as well as a previous career as a graphic designer have all contributed to the style and mood of her work. Her happy clientele includes Glamour, The New Yorker, Hasbro, Target, and Palty of Japan. She has exhibited her work in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Tokyo, and is a regular contributor to Entertainment Weekly and Glamour Germany. Kirsten currently resides in Manhattan with her husband and two black cats, Romulus and Remus.
