I’m Eryn J. Carlisle
The face behind Rock & Rollick! I’m a free-spirited artist & textile designer, obsessed with: home decor, mom life, & day dreaming of far off places (real & make believe!). My love affair with surface + textile design began in 2008 while attending Savannah College of Art & Design.
In 2016 I founded Rock & Rollick on a rebellious streak & a lofty dream!
Now, I get to help brands make their products irresistible by offering artistic textile designs that elevate their products – so they can stand out from the crowd.

My journey to get here was a winding path though, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
I was working in graphic design & marketing when I first began to license my art. I was excited to have artwork licensed with Kirklands, Garden Ridge, Clairebella, and Simply to Impress, among others. Around this same time I became pregnant with my son. After some encouragement & with my husband’s blessing, I decided to leave my marketing job. I continued to license my art as I became a new mom. I also began pursuing my dream and created plans for Rock & Rollick.
What started out as a line of unique baby bedding & decor with exclusive designs, has now become a business focused on helping other small shops stand out. I want to offer an easy & affordable option for ‘exclusive’ textiles, so small shops can make their products truly unique.
I should have known that the little girl who spent hours building paper houses and drawing patterns for all the walls, rugs and furniture with her crayons would grow up to be a textile designer someday!
When I’m not making a mess with my paints, geeking out on trend-forecasting, or dreaming up ways to help brands create that irresistible effect; I can be found DIY-ing it up on my next home decor project, discovering the magic in everyday life with my kids, or snuggled up with my dreamboat husband after the kids are all tucked in bed, trying to catch up on our favorite shows. There’s also a good chance I’m out with my family on some kind of an adventure; be it big or small, we’re huge nature lovers and love to be outdoors when we can.
Ya wanna know what else really lights me up? Encouraging people to listen to what makes their hearts flutter. Being the voice that helps someone find courage and to trust their journey. I want to help people clarify the vision for their business so they can see extraordinary things happen in their life. I want to encourage them to show up, to take one step at a time, do the work, and honor their intuition. And lastly, I want to be the permission granter in your life that says, “you’ve got this!”
