Hi there! Thanks for spending some time with my work. I am a cross-platform creative offering original artwork and design solutions to global clients from my studios in the Pacific Northwest, USA. I received a degree in Fine Art from Bard College and an MFA in Graphic Design from The Maryland Institute College of Art. I have worked in-house as a Product Graphic Designer for Nike and as Senior Graphic Designer at Timber Press. My work has been featured in HOW Magazine, UPPERCASE Magazine, Ink Newspaper, Pattern Observer, Mama Mandolin blog, and the ADX Portland Blog. 

My main focus is textile and surface pattern design, which I execute through several outlets. Under Skye McNeill, I have pattern collections available for licensing and original art for sale. My studio, OROZCO, is a full service surface pattern design studio producing unique prints, graphics, and illustrations for active and outdoor lifestyle brands and ecologically minded companies. Skye McNeill Art & Design provides illustration, graphic design, and photography services on a freelance basis. I also teach several workshops and classes per year, both privately for events and through education centers such as Wildcraft Studio School and Homespun School in Portland. Please get in touch if you'd like to learn more or book a class or project. For upcoming classes and more, check my events page.

A passionate environmentalist, animal advocate, and feminist, I give preference to companies who are making the environment a priority in their production methods through safe dyes, considered materials, zero or low waste, and fair trade practices, as well as high safety and wage standards in manufacturing and community involvement. Each season I offer a collection of prints inspired by or addressing an issue facing our environment or society. Proceeds from these collections will be donated to a non-profit or activist organization working to aid in these challenges. I also consider pro bono, discounts, and trade opportunities for individuals and non-profit companies fighting for social, ecological, and food justice, and who directly better our local and global communities. We are all in this together! 

The Pacific Northwest is full of so many talented and inspiring women-run creative businesses. I encourage you to support them as much as possible! Here are just a few to begin with; Klum House, WeMake, Fort Wick, ADX, Portland Apparel Lab, The Riveter, The Far Woods, Laundry Studio, The Beauty Shop, Hawnuh Lee, Emily IrelanWild Fang, Tender Loving Empire, Icon, Nicolle Clemetson, Alexandria CummingsFritzwaBroad Space, Zoe KellerBrilliant Sea Wellness, All the Woo, Fran Gallo, Stream PDX, Rachel Ravitch, Beth Olson Creative, North Portland Yoga, Treetrunkwise, Hart Bodywork, Amy L. Frazer, Ellen Julia Brown, Redbird, Queen Bee, Nikki McClure, Carson Ellis, Jill Bliss, Lori D., Monarchy.

A little more personal: I've lived in seven states and two countries and travel constantly. I am a daydreamer and a romantic and try to eat kale everyday. I like stories, bicycles, pumpkins, baking, sewing, surf culture, punk music, zines, yoga, campfires, playing banjo, thunderstorms, going out to brunch, wildflowers and autumn days. I have a tiny black cat named Coco. I'm open for collaborations, freelance work, full-time opportunities, pizza parties, old time music jams, and Northwest adventures. Get in touch!
