Based in Philadelphia, Kendra Dandy is known for creating colorful illustrations, cheeky, smile-inducing patterns and original art. With a style and voice that is uniquely her own, Kendra’s designs are bright, original, cheerful and a little sassy. Each illustration provokes a conversation and is refreshingly unexpected.


Kendra Dandy is an illustrator/surface designer and Philadelphia native. While trying to find a way to be involved in the fashion world by combining her love for illustration and fashion design without the ability to produce clothing, she stumbled upon the world of surface design, which allowed her to apply her painting skills in a new and exciting way to a myriad of products.  


In 2012, Kendra launched the brand Bouffants & Broken Hearts. Bouffants represents a sense of individuality, self-expression, and fun. Nothing about the brand, or the art, is conventional – the mix of patterns, colors, and subjects is original; designs are loud, and everyday life is reinterpreted in amusing ways.

Her unique and colorful patterns are licensed globally and featured on products including bedding, decorative pillows, tabletop, tech accessories, beauty packaging, stationery, and fashion accessories.
