elle crée -- or “she creates” in French -- produces artist quality paint-by-number kits designed and made in Portland, Oregon by illustrator Rachel Austen. Featuring a diverse array of illustrations, including still lifes and iconic historical figures, each kit includes non-toxic hand-mixed acrylic paints and minimal, eco-friendly packaging. elle crée uses locally sourced components and USA made materials whenever possible; ideal for the conscious-consumer.
Rachel has always loved a vintage aesthetic and is enamored with mid century paint by number designs because of their stylized simplicity. She started elle crée in 2017 out of her desire to create a nostalgic product from her illustrations that customers could interact with.
