I was born and raised in the South. A love of art and a collection of witty quotes started me on this journey of Mary Phillips Designs almost 16 years ago.

In 1999 I saw the John Lennon art exhibit for the third time and set out to purchase a sumi ink set. The pandora's box was opened and soon framed paintings of one sassy lady paired with super witty quotes from my personal collection were seen in local shops, and shortly after, throughout the world. The business had begun... The product line naturally expanded giving way to more gift and stationery products as well as tremendous licensing partnerships with some of the industry's best.

I have had an absolute blast pulling together an arsenal of humorous quotes to share with you. I am still always collecting quotes and many you will see in the collection of new products. The MPD team always provides non stop antics and lots of laughter making each day seem like an adventure. When I'm not designing I enjoy time with the amazing man in my life, catching up with my girlfriends, and a weekly love of running, pilates, and yoga. I'm an avid list maker and a loyal martini conessoir; it's all about balance right? I love planting new flowers, trying new restaurants, and believe that any time traveling to some place new is time well spent. Life is supposed to be an adventure after all. The newest and most exciting additions to my day are the endless preparations for my greatest creation yet, a little boy who is due in March. Appropriately during March Madness---as a die hard Tar Heel basketball fan I am beyond excited for the timing.
