We are a small, female-led team based in Durham, NC. We believe that art belongs in every day, so our mission is making it easy and accessible to add creativity to your life! Here's a look at the people making it happen.


I started Elyse Breanne Design on Etsy when I was 18, offering only my original paintings. I continued to create while earning my bachelor’s and master’s degrees. In 2019, I moved from Chicago to Durham, NC, to attend law school at Duke University. I kept up with my business and started to offer my stickers and greeting cards wholesale for retail shops in January of 2020. When the pandemic hit, I began posting my artwork on TikTok and started to gain traction there.

My business rapidly expanded in 2020 leading me to lease my first commercial office space and hire employees in January of 2021. That year proved to be a life-changing year from me as I realized I had built a business which could support not only myself, but full-time employees, too. During my second year in law school, I decided I would make my business my career. After completing my law degree in May of 2022, I took EBD full-time. Then in October, I opened our flagship storefront, Mill and Meadow, in downtown Durham, NC. Now, along with my team, I am continuing to grow Elyse Breanne Design, expanding our reach to help add creativity to each of our customers’ daily lives.

You may recognize Jordyn from Tiktok and Instagram. That’s because she’s been around longer than any of us! Jordyn was EBD’s first full-time employee. What started with packing orders has morphed into a leadership role as our Marketing and Administration Manager. When that isn’t keeping her busy, Jordyn loves to jump behind the lens and snap many of the awesome pictures you see here on our website. She’s got a great eye, and sometimes she even sneaks other members of the team into the shot. Jordyn’s also a Raleigh native, born and raised here in the Triangle. She got her start at a boutique in the Village District that sold EBD products, which is how Jordyn found her way to Elyse. The rest is history!

Cowboy Carter. That’s what you’d likely hear if you pulled off Cat’s wireless headphones while she’s bouncing around EBD’s warehouse. Cat is our Customer Service and Inventory Manager, so if you ever reach out about an order, she’s likely the one to answer! She works hand-in-hand with our team to get orders from our door to yours, and keeps us on top of inventory. Cat’s also our resident quiz queen. Her latest question: if you were a genie, what would your container be? Feel free to email to send her your answer!

As our Brand Manager, Lauren is our resident wordsmith. After years of working in local news, she was eager to get back to writing for fun. And girl, is she running with it. You’ll see a lot of posts and content from Lauren across our social media platforms and right here on the website. She's also the creative force behind our Youtube channel. And if you ever attend an event at Mill & Meadow? It’ll have Lauren’s fingerprints all over it. She’s living her best life for y’all, dreaming up DIY projects, taste testing mocktails and coordinating all the craziness behind the scenes. Her latest odd Amazon order? Three football fields' worth of ribbon. Keep an eye on the blog to see what it’s for!

Melanie is our HR Specialist here at EBD, but her work goes way beyond payroll. You’re as likely to find her unpacking planners or working at Mill & Meadow as you are to see her ironing out healthcare coverage. She’s just that kind of a team player, and she loves the variety that comes with working for a small business instead of corporate. Melanie had a front row seat to watch her sister start the business. Eight years later, we’re grateful she’s here to add some variety to our Friday morning dance party playlists – always sprinkling some rap into the T-Swift mix.

If you’ve ever ordered from EBD, odds are Hannah has helped get your goods out the door. She’s our Fulfillment Manager and Wholesale Specialist in the warehouse, working full time to keep it organized and to keep orders on schedule. One of Hannah’s super strengths? She loves the mayhem that comes with a viral Tiktok, God bless her. Those are long nights! We also recently learned Hannah was clearly meant to work here, after she discovered some early EBD stickers she had ordered years before her job opened up. We went back and found her first order: stickers and an art print!

Without Ian, Mill & Meadow never would've looked as polished and perfect as she does. He worked tirelessly for weeks to lay the floors, build and install so much of the shelving... he even redid our lighting! That's his favorite part of the job, getting to work with his hands. Ian is also a warehouse associate, helping us keep the space in fantastic shape and reining in the chaos that occasionally breaks out.

Our newest addition to the EBD Team! Layla loves to show her zoomies off around the office and bite anything she can get her paws on. If you ask her mom Melanie, she has quite the personality- at least twice her size in sass. While she certainly has big paws to fill, we know she'll be a natural at her new position of Chief Morale Officer.



Our unofficial 8th man and an aspiring product model for EBD. Reagan's favorite tasks were distracting us with urgent requests for pets, and opening drawers throughout the office with his nose. We could never get enough of him & he is forever in our hearts.
