Taking the magical and imaginary to fun-size.
Hands down one of the best things that’s ever happened to me was getting laid off from New Line Cinema, my first and only 9-5 job. The combination of unemployment checks, severance & money saved from the past two years provided me with a comfortable, financial cushion to launch my business. It was a very slow process, and I honestly didn’t envision it becoming a business until much later. All I knew is that I wanted to draw & sew.
When making the plush toys, no patterns are used because every piece is special and unlike any other. My paintings and sketches are based on childhood memories, daydreams, and a genuine fascination with the world.
I'm a nomadic addict who can't stay in one place for more than six weeks so I've been all over the world collecting stories & various materials (like 30 yards of silk from Punjab, India) to use for my plush and art. I take full advantage of the fact that my work is portable and begs movement & adventure for inspiration. The art you see in my shop is an ongoing culmination and mixing of personal experiences, travels, relationships, and a truly deep love for ice cream.

Genevieve Santos is a kid at heart. She worked a 9-5 job but nothing satisfied her more than genuine creativity. She started her own business so that she could do what she loves: get lost in the loveliness of the world and express it through art.
