Art from Amanda Gatton, lover of whimsy and fairy tales

Art was a thing that helped me communicate in early childhood when I had trouble speaking because of a stutter, and difficulty reading and writing at the normal level of my age group. What I didn't know how to say the way that everyone else said it, I could communicate with a picture that I drew.

As I grew older and more and more drawn to art and creating, two artists in particular stood out to me. One was Ed Emberley. Emberley is a world renowned artist who created dozens of "How to Draw" books for kids (to name only a few of his major life accomplishments.) His art was tremendously appealing to me, and as an adult, his philosophy has stuck with me on a daily basis. Ed believes art is something every child can succeed with. AND, he'll tell you, "he just draws pictures for a living." I succeeded as a child with art, and I just wanted to draw pictures for a living. So that's what I do, just like Ed.

Then, as a teen and young adult, I discovered with delight, that I am a creepy chick! Therefore, I fell dramatically in love with the art of Tim Burton. I love love LOVE his darkly fanciful universes. As I've grown older and learned more and more about him, I've learned of his creative brilliance and artistic genius. He is truly a person who would be quickly driven insane were he not allowed to create. He HAS to get the creatures out of his head. Just. Like. Me. He is drawn to the world of pop surrealist art, which drew me into that beautiful, ornate, slightly sad universe as well.

So, I like to think of my art as the marriage of Ed Emberley and Tim Burton. Creepy, but fun and appealing for children as well as adults. I opened my Etsy shop years back because I "wanted to draw pictures for a living." I didn't have much more of a vision than that. What I've learned, however, is that you need a SLIGHTLY more specific direction than that, so my shop is constantly evolving and now I proceed with purpose. So here's what you can get from moi: Apparel, home decor, art prints and originals, digital art, mixed media art, home decor, accessories, stickers, journals and sketch books, coloring pages, paper dolls, affordable instant download art, digi stamps and clipart, learning aides, and more!

Over on my website, at , you can subscribe to my newsletter where you'll find out about craft shows where I will appear in person, and you can find a constant flow of free coloring pages and other fun freebies. Also over there, you can find links to where all my published books are sold.

Here you'll find a whimsical world with a sometimes touch of creepiness. Fairy tales, things with wings, magical lands, flowers, suns, moons, and so much more. Welcome to my world, I hope you'll stay a spell!

For any orders of physical items, I will place orders with my manufacturing partners on Mondays. Then the orders will ship from the manufacturer within 2-3 business days. For example, if you order a physical art print on Wednesday, I will submit the order the following Monday. So it may take about a week to leave the manufacturer, and then up to two weeks to arrive. So, in total, please allow up to three weeks for delivery of physical items. *IF YOU NEED FASTER SHIPPING, PLEASE SEND ME A CONVERSATION BEFORE ORDERING, I WILL SEE WHAT I CAN DO*

Most products I will offer here in the shop will either be available for instant digital download, or drop shipped from a manufacturer in the case of physical items. At this time, I am using Society6 and Redbubble to manufacture my designs on a variety of items. Society6 states the following shipping expectations:

*USA: 4-14 days, delivered by the USPS

*Australia: 4-14 days, delivered by the Australian Post (applies to Wall Prints, Mugs, Notebooks, and Stationary Cards - all other items, please refer to international ship times)

*International: 2-4 weeks, delivered by your local postal service

All items that ship from Society6 will be labeled as such in the listing. When I receive any tracking data for your shipment, I will immediately forward it to you so that you can know when to expect it. Even though I will provide you with that information, you are always welcome to ask me any questions or help tracking the order!

Redbubble is not as specific with it's shipping procedures, simply stating that it depends on the product. However, they print and prepare your order within 1-3 business days and then it is on it's way. I will forward your tracking information if available, to the email address you provide with your order.

If you are interested in a piece for a gift that ships from one of my partner manufacturers, and you have a deadline, please message me before ordering to verify that it will make it to you in time! I can check with Society6 or Redbubble, but if you prefer, you are always welcome to order my designs direct from those sites!
