About

Taking the magical and imaginary to fun-size.

The Beginning
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.

The Process
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.

The Story
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.
