Meet the Characters
Yvonne is the artist behind Yvonne Page Illustration and That’s My Apple. She has been writing, drawing, painting, doodling, and designing since she was three years old (maybe younger, she can’t remember any further back than that). Her work has been featured in many online and print publications including Scary Mommy, What the Flicka, Mothering Magazine, and Babble. She combines a unique sense of humor and illustration style to create comics about her life as a woman and mother, as well as art tailored to her favorite audience: kids.
In 2017, Yvonne launched the “Bookmarks Across America” program where she sent almost 10,000 free bookmarks to children across the United States in celebration of Read Across America Day. The project was such a success that she plans to continue it each year and expand to other art-related giving programs as her business grows, including free online art lessons and art supply packs sent to kids who want to be artists but can’t afford the tools to get started.

Yvonne knew back in 2001 that she wanted to start a line of funny greeting cards tackling subjects and occasions skipped by traditional greeting card companies. Think “thanks for breaking my heart” and “sorry for the loss of your cat” type cards. That idea never quite came to fruition but she continued to build up her brand and develop her illustration style over the years while dabbling in selling different designs through print on demand sites. Though mildly successful, she knew that in order to offer the best quality products possible (which was something that was really important to her), she really needed to open her own store where she controlled the products, inventory, printing, and shipping. In early 2017, she committed to doing just that. She now runs That’s My Apple from her basement with just the help of her family (and her loyal kitty assistant, Mary). When you purchase from That’s My Apple, you can be confident that you’re buying from a small business and that the profits go to supporting a family and back into the community.
