About

Water, Mountians, Love and Magic.

Mountains were Shane's constant companion growing up in Vermont but little did he know he would leave his beloved hills for love. The ocean and all things Marine were, and still are, the focus of Perrin's existence. She knew that she always wanted to be near them and dreamed of having someone in her life that appreciated them as much as she did. After separate lifetimes of common experience Shane and Perrin's adventures aligned and Chick Family Ink was born on the Seacoast of New Hampshire and Maine. This fruitful union set a cavalcade of good things in motion including the birth of a daughter who has been an unequaled inspiration.

Shane has a degree in Furniture Design but when Mia was born it was decided that he would be a stay at home dad. This made sense when faced with the costs of daycare and taking his obscenely massive amount of love for his new daughter. As any creative person knows, the drive to make things is impossible to quench for long and Shane started to tinker and make to satisfy the primal creative urges.

Perrin completely understands the creative drive and does everything in her power to make this possible. In truth Perrin is is the Chief Financial Officer of Chick Family Ink as well the main focus group as she has an extremely positive and critical eye. More often then not the things Shane makes are influenced by something Perrin loves, has said, or wants. With out Perrin Chick Family Ink would never have left the doodle pad.

It can be said that Mia has in her Five short years become an astute art critic and motivating supervisor. What she says, goes and she has Shane wrapped around her little finger. Though this is not an anomaly when it comes to the father/daughter relationship it has become a magical ingredient in the artistic recipe.

If this arraignment sounds blissful and out of this world, you would be correct. Every piece of art that is presented here on Etsy is the result of the love and devotion that Shane, Perrin and Mia have for each other.
