About Cowgirl Creative

Who's the queen of the rodeo?

Cowgirl Creative is a small design firm with a big heart in Oakland, California, built by one wild woman who hates to be fenced in but loves building fences.

Kristen Caven

Talented n' inventive Kristen Caven has been designing and illustrating since the mid-eighties (nineteen, not eighteen). With a Liberal Arts degree and design training from both the Rocky Mountain College of Art and San Francisco City College, Kristen built a career by responding, "I'll figure it out," to the question, "can you do this?"


Her cowgirl logo emerged in 1995 to symbolize her "quick on the draw" reputation of being able to whip out a pencil, pen, or mouse and make things happen quickly and with great aim. It also represents her eternal longing for a pony, which she brought to the big city (San Francisco Bay Area) when she moved out from the wide west (Colorado & New Mexico).

Kristen is also an author, artist and cartoonist. Read more about that stuff here.
