The Story Behind Art by INKY

Art by INKY is a unique art shop specializing in original illustrated art, handmade accessories, paper goods and more.

All artwork in this shop is created by Aleesha Lindstrom, a digital designer and illustrator, and the owner of Art by INKY.

I care greatly about my environmental impact, and as such, all of my items are shipped in eco-conscious and low waste packaging.

Turning My Dreams into a Reality

Even though many artists seek an independent route from the beginning, I honestly didn’t believe I had the focus and courage to do my own thing.

It wasn’t until 2020 that I had considered branching out on my own and opening up my own independent art shop.

The instability and uncertainty of the times motivated me to pursue something outside of my comfort realm- to sell my artwork and become my own boss.

I spent the majority of 2020 honing my craft and preparing for the grand opening. I never realized the amount of planning, investing and logistics that go into starting up a business.

Once I launched in mid May of 2021, it felt surreal. To my customers, friends and family, thank you for supporting me and joining me on this journey.

Behind My Shop Name

There’s actually quite a story behind my shop name.

First, the obvious, I’m a digital artist and sell all of my original artwork as prints and other items. So the “art by” comes into play there.

I tried other variations, but this seemed the most straight forward and I didn’t want to limit what I made to something specific like illustration or design.

“INKY” however, is an alias that was formed out of an old online username and a joke.

Years ago when I used Facebook, there was a challenge between friends to change your middle name to a food. Mine became biscuits and I stuck with that name elsewhere online with the word inky before it.

The reason being is that I like the inking/ line art process of art. It’s a tedious pain, but it’s the most rewarding part because that’s the foundation of your piece. Once that’s in place then the rest comes pretty easy.

I used “inky_biscuits” as my online identity for years, but others would call me inky for short, especially when I used to stream my artwork on Twitch.

Over time, I wanted to rebrand myself and push myself out of the art as a hobby lane. I wanted to cultivate what my art can be and represents.

Plus, there’s actually a small art studio/ shop in the UK called inky biscuits and I wanted to prevent future issues.

I could have used my real name, but this had more meaning to me and to those who have supported me over the years.

Who am I?

My real name is Aleesha Lindstrom and I’m a digital artist, designer and illustrator currently residing in Connecticut.

Ever since I was young, I have always enjoyed creating art.

Professionally, I’ve been involved in the creative field since 2016 and received my B.F.A. in Digital Media and Design at the University of Connecticut.

I’ve held creative positions in fields such as, marketing, graphic design and even dabbled in freelancing, but I never had thought I would catch the entrepreneurial bug.
