About KarinaMaeStudio

Sales 895
On Etsy since 2015

A world of personable, gentle creatures.

I started making my line of animal greeting cards and prints in 2012 when I worked at a small local company that specializing in printing art. I gradually added to my line of images as I made the transition to working as an artist full time. Each time I add an image I feel like I'm illustrating one more aspect of this magical world full of gentle creatures.

I work full time as an artist in the Quadra Village neighbourhood of Victoria, BC Canada on Lekwungen territory.

Thanks so much for visiting!

    My cards are printed by Metropol, my local art print shop. I design the cards myself and they print them according to my specifications. The cards are colour matched to the original paintings for accuracy. Once printed I package the cards myself.
