Elle Crée (she creates) Paint-by-Number Kits
Elle crée – or “she creates” in French – produces artist quality paint-by-number kits that foster creativity and self-care! Founded by Portland illustrator Rachel Austen in 2017 out of her desire to create a nostalgic product from her illustrations that customers could interact with and that would spur their own creativity. Her kits feature a diverse array of subject matter, including still lifes, botanicals, and inspirational history-makers!
Elle crée seeks to reduce its impact on the environment by carefully sourcing eco-friendly components that are locally produced and USA-made, whenever possible. Custom paint colors are mixed by hand from non-toxic USA-made acrylic, and our kits are assembled with the help of a small staff in Portland, Oregon. Founded with a social focus, 5% of its net profits are donated to social and environmental causes. In addition to being an eco-friendly brand, they are also committed to being an organization of diversity, inclusion, and most importantly inspiration for budding artists everywhere.
