Hello. I’m Pam Houston, founder of Houston Design Studios. My creative roots are in the Bluegrass of Kentucky (home to genuine people and the world’s best thoroughbred racing!) and where I first knew I was an artist at heart.

My 25+ years of corporate branding design and product promotion gave me a natural platform for growth into the world of surface & textile design, while my professional network continues to offer support and encouragement.

In 1988, along with two partners, I started a marketing communications firm headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio. Today, DeanHouston, Inc. is a multi-million dollar business and among the fastest growing privately-held companies in America–with offices now also in Chicago, Los Angeles and Shanghai. I have enjoyed developing custom designs for our many wonderful clients while also traveling the world. It is a busy and exciting life.

In 2011, I launched Houston Design Studios and began the entrepreneurial shift from visual design strategy to textile & surface design. I located the business in a warehouse studio in The Pendleton Art Center in Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine district.

Give me a call or send me a note. I’m always excited to meet new people and build a new business relationship.
