Happy Menocal is a New York based painter and designer. She is known for her spirited illustration style and profligate use of color.


Founded by Happy in 2012, we are a full-service design studio comprised of a small team of artists, calligraphers, designers and producers. We create hand-painted custom stationery and event invitations, emblems for personal and commercial use, textile and product designs, and fine artwork. We pride ourselves on our loving approach to each project.

Please inquire with Mary Nelson:

We advise getting in touch with us a year in advance of your wedding. Our next booking deadline is November 30, 2018 for weddings in Summer 2019 (June through August 2019) and beyond.

If you’d like to receive a hand-drawn postcard from Happy a few times a year (mostly via email, sometimes snail mail), please email
