Blue Jay Bay, LLC: art + design by Emily Caven

Hello and welcome to my shop! My name is Emily Caven, and I am a nature-loving Scientist-Artist hybrid. My educational background is in things such as plants and maps, and I worked for many years as a research scientist and cartographer. My paintings are fun and vibrant celebrations of the subject matter, appealing to naturalists, travelers, classic car lovers, happiness seekers, and gift givers.

I am inspired by the amazing brilliance of the natural world, and I approach map making as an artistic expression. My art is a mixture of realistic and abstract interpretations, and I am very fond of lively, dynamic color schemes. I often paint with a limited palette, using just two paint colors in a single piece of art. The scientist in me is always exploring and learning, applying new techniques in my artistic pursuits. I paint things that bring me joy ➼ maps, classic cars, birds, dogs, plants, et al ➼ and I hope this artwork brings happiness to those who hang it on their walls!

I opened my art shop on Etsy in November of 2015, with the goal of offering cheerful, colorful, and unique art. My made-to-order paintings are originals and can be personalized to suit your tastes. The painting designs you find here can be customized with colors and text of your choosing, and the result is a one-of-a-kind, meaningful piece of art. I also offer a selection of my artwork as giclée fine art prints using museum-quality materials that will last for generations to come.

Thank you for checking out my art shop! I am so grateful for the opportunity to create meaningful art for you and yours. You can find more information about my art and design projects at
XO, Emily
