Hi, I'm Mia Nolting, an artist and art director from California living in Portland, Oregon. I approach each project with a mix of logic and intuition. I often lean on my drawing skills, and I also work with words and photography. I am a big fan of mail art.

I make drawings and designs for a wide range of freelance clients with a focus on the publishing and film industries.

As an art director, I’m currently working with Studio Jelly on brand imagery, look and feel, and messaging for companies and organizations.

I’m author of Instant Journal (aka Weekend Diary in Japanese), a year-long guided journal based on years of list-making, and I’m co-founder and co-editor at publishing studio Volumes Volumes. My art work has been supported by the Regional Arts and Culture Council and Signal Fire Arts.
