These pens are so unique - I have never seen anything like them. I plan on giving these to my children's teachers for Halloween - I know they will love them. Seller is very easy to deal with and quick on delivery.

Devilishly sweet creative urges

The Marie Young Creative studio was born in 2009 out of a need to find an outlet for my creative urges.

My work is inspired by art history, vintage finds, nature, and occasionally the offbeat. I love to explore contrast: light and dark, good and evil, urban and rural, sweet and naughty. Like my art, I am filled with sugar and spice, blended with a little of the unexpected.

I inherited my love for creating from my mom. She encouraged my sister and me to play with everything. Her only rule was don't cut paper with the fabric scissors. I started to evolve that love of "technique-based" crafting through artistic discovery.

I loved studying art so much that I choose art history as my major in college. When I told my family about my choice of major, my father not-so-politely asked, "What in the Hell can you do with that?" Well, I found that I can channel inspiration from the past, adding my own funky twist, to create original projects.
