about this & me

Salut and welcome to coucou salut!

The brains behind coucou salut is me, Shannon Adolph, and I’m an illustrator, graphic designer and textile artist. I create a line of illustrated and hand-printed home accessories under the brand coucou salut.

Me and my mister J live in a lovely old apartment in Montreal, Quebec. In the summer I bike, and in the winter I skate. Poutine is readily available. I love it here.

I’m a bit of a vintage nut, and find the patterns, colors and shapes of the 50’s and 60’s to be a huge inspiration for me. There is a simple graphic quality to the textiles of this time period that I can’t get enough of, and inevitably re-create in my work. I also derive a lot of inspiration from my surroundings in Montreal. My neighbourhood is brimming with abandoned vintage furniture, beautiful vine-covered apartments, kitschy diners, and amazing patterns and textures, and it all finds its way into my work eventually!

Thanks so much for stopping by! If you'd like to know anything else, just send me an email or tweet.
