Hello and thanks for dropping by. My name is Bernadette Sipkes and I started this Etsy store (way back in 2005!) so that I could share my passion for hand crafted, colorful and affordable, original art and stationery. I am inspired by nature and, Scandinavian & Japanese aesthetics.
I have been drawing for as long as I can remember. My art and illustrations have been printed on fabric by Longina Phillips and, have appeared in publications such as, Dolly; Cleo; Cosmopolitan; InStyle; Domino Magazine; Your Home and Garden; Design*sponge; Home Beautiful and; Sunset Magazine...
