Kelly Sweitzer

Wilmington, NC

Illustrator Kelly Sweitzer draws and paints food puns with her business, The Pepper Mill Shop, which began in the mill shop on the Screen Gems studio lot in 2014. Sweitzer started creating these sassy designs, combining loves of painting, cooking, and puns, for one reason – to make people laugh! Often tied to music and pop culture, the puns she gives to her characters are unique, original, and (she thinks) funny. Her illustrations are first featured on Sande wood panels in brilliant acrylic colors, then move to more decor options such as prints, as well as usable, everyday items such as tote bags and tees.
