Corey Paige started her company, Corey Paige Designs, in her dorm room at Tulane University. What once started out as a hobby, drawing pictures for friends to hang up in their dorms, quickly turned into a business. Sophomore year, she posted one of her unique collage designs on Instagram and received a tremendous amount of positive feedback and began taking personalized design requests. As her popularity on social media grew, she started to receive calls from retail stores across the country to carry her merchandise and to design products for their brands. It was at this point that she decided to turn her hobby into a business. Alas, Corey Paige Designs was born.
Corey has developed an expressive style by combining bright and colorful imagery, icons, patterns and words. She creates fun and whimsical art based on popular themes including fashion, travel destinations, teen activities, and college spirit and more. Her portfolio of designs translate to virtually any product including apparel, accessories, home decor, stationery, and now wall art! Corey has created custom designs for charities, summer camps, colleges, sports teams, and even unique designs for private events such as Bar/Bat Mitzvahs. She has collaborated with several companies including Living Royal, Malibu Sugar, Inkology, Art Sugar, Sykel Enterprises, and many others in the works. You could even find Corey’s signature artwork in the Wynwood Arts District of Miami, Florida where she has two two-story wall murals.
Over the past year, Corey has transitioned into the fine art world, discovering her passion for painting. She has created many commissioned art pieces for clients nationwide. Corey’s work is currently being displayed at Art Unified Gallery in Venice, CA and Gallery23 in New York City.

Artist Statement
Happy is a feeling of joy, pleasure, or good fortune. I am a strong believer that you should strive to do what makes you happy. Happiness doesn’t just come to you. You can make changes in your life that will put you on a path to a happier life.
In early 2020 when we were all quarantined at home, I started a new venture and found a new passion. My first at-home activity was to paint. That feeling of joy and pleasure is what I experienced when painting and still do to this day.
I create artwork with you in mind. I explore themes of happiness, joy, love, passion, and positivity. Happiness is contagious. When you look at my work, my hope is that it makes you smile and think positive thoughts. That optimism can be infectious, and you should spread it onto others.
I plan to continue spreading a message of positivity through my art, as well as raise awareness for the causes that I am passionate about. Nothing makes me happier than when my art puts a smile on someone else’s face.
