Naiad and Walter Einsel were married in 1953. Their similar styles of work enabled them to work collaboratively on book and magazine illustrations, posters, advertisements, package designs and collage boxes. They met while both were art directors - Naiad at CBS, and Walter at NBC. Walter arrived at CBS to apply for an opening, later commenting, “I didn’t get the job but I got the girl.” Born in Philadelphia, Naiad's interest in art began in her father's grocery store where she drew on the brown wrapping paper. Rubber stamps used in his store also fascinated her. Later she began collecting and using them in her artwork. After attending the High School of Music and Art in New York City, she graduated from Pratt Institute. Her illustrations have appeared in Redbook, Collier's, Look, Good Housekeeping, The Ladies' Home Journal, Woman's Day, Family Circle, Cosmopolitan, The New York Times, Travel and Leisure, Food and Wine, and Smithsonian Magazine. She has designed record album covers, movie posters and TV commercials. Clients include MandM, Xerox, Proctor and Gamble, and Chase Manhattan. Naiad has also illustrated books for Doubleday, Macmillan, Random House, Harcourt Brace and Jovanovich, Clarkson Potter, and Workman Press. She designed towels for Fieldcrest, dishes for Dansk, games for Colorforms and Reader's Digest. She also designed and directed the production of the 76 by 104 inch award-winning Westport Bicentennial Quilt, sewn with the assistance of 33 women, which began in October 1974 and was finally put on display in January 1976.
