Matissimo design by Leslie NewmanThanks for visiting Matissimo.com!

I’m a former city dweller, now living in the big woods of the North Kitsap Peninsula in Washington State. We live and work here at Fernwoods with honeybee colonies and two cats. I’m a traditionally trained graphic designer and make beautiful, effective WordPress websites for artists, non-profits & small businesses and creating custom illustration for companies based everywhere.

Stylish, fun and fanciful, my original designs are inspired by modern art, plants and animals. Shape, color, pattern are the elements of Matissimo exclusive designs. The artwork is applied to everyday items, t-shirts, mugs, aprons, clocks, note cards and much more. All are great gifts for a friend or yourself. When you order a Matissimo product, it is printed-to-order by Zazzle. They handle the secure payment transaction and ship the finished items direct to you. Every Matissimo item you purchase is covered by a 30-day money back guarantee!
