Amy Coleman's Profile

About

My name is Amy. I started Little Stinker in 2009 and wasn't sure where it would go, what I would create exactly or even if anyone would like the designs I created!

I feel inspired by much of the world around me but when I get stuck for ideas I look in all sorts of places: retro-inspired design books like 'Pad' or 'Flea Market Style,' my Literature anthologies from college, edgy books like 'Big Ass Book of Crafts' or sweet simple ones like 'Handmade Home,' other Etsians myriad of collective work, designs I have abandoned along the way, packaging at the grocery store and - probably most importantly - my wonderful, nutty, unbearably handsome little boy, Liam. He's really my muse: Little Stinker came into being from my desire to make kitschy, different shirts that reflected my personal sense of style for him. Wait, can a boy be a muse? Well. Anyway…

I am many things actually, in addition to being the woman behind the curtain at Little Stinker... hip mama, little wifey, uber-waitress (it's my day job), traveler, wanderer, daydreamer. I try, at all times, to be kind but - like most people - don't always succeed so I'm working on that. I am blindly and eternally optimistic. I love life and riding my pink bike all over town.

I hope these things show through in my work and that you love your Little Stinker design as much as I loved creating it for you. Thanks for stopping by, I'm glad you came!
