Pittsburgh Society of Illustrators


Jeanine Murch

 With a lively and exuberant style and a passion for color and lettering, I create art for children’s books, greeting cards, editorial, ad campaigns, and home decor products.

After graduating from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, I began my career in the big publishing houses of New York City. I designed and art directed children’s books for over a decade, then took a leap into the world of freelance to expand my creative opportunities and start my family. 


My experience in publishing allowed me to gain a thorough understanding of the creative collaborative process, and I offer the utmost professionalism to all my clients from initial communication through design and final file delivery.

I now live in my hometown of Pittsburgh with my family, and work from my home studio. I love nature, music, travel, and spending time with my small children and sweet rescue pup—all of which inspire my work.
