Driven by a deep love for sassy individuals, big mountains, and long bike rides, Phoebe Carpenter Eells creates block print art inspired by everyday life, and travels with her two young boys and her husband. Her hip and gritty style is passionate and uncomplicated.

elSage Designs was founded in 2010 as a small art and accessories shop. The company has grown organically since then, adding apparel and prints on reclaimed wood. In 2012 Phoebe took elSage Designs full time, resigning from her middle school teaching position.

Each and every piece is designed, carved and printed entirely by hand in the elSage Studio studio in Washington State. The slow, hands on process of printing directly from a block creates small variations making each piece unique. All of the materials used are ethically made and of the highest quality. Environmental responsibility is a core value at elSage Designs, sourcing our inks, apparel, wood and paper with sustainability in mind. elSage Designs is a part of the 1% ForThe Planet, a network of business pledging 1% of every sale to help the planet.

Outside of working in the studio, you can find Phoebe most often acting as her firefighter son’s dispatch operator or her daredevil son’s safety coach. She likes the chaos that comes with two boys and strongly believes that everyone should keep their hands to themselves. Phoebe embraces scrappy creativity, messy hair and adventure.
