Chicks n Hens

Hi! Welcome to Chicks n Hens! I'm Liz- the founder, illustrator, and creative spirit behind Chicks n Hens. The name Chicks n Hens was inspired by fond memories of my grandma digging up chickens and hens (succulents) from her garden and sharing them with me after summer visits spent painting on her back porch. I create illustrations with vintage vibes, whimsy design elements, and cheerful colors. All of my illustrations begin as a drawing in my sketchbook. Chicks n Hens is based out of Indianapolis, Indiana, where I personally handle every phase of the design process in the Chicks n Hens studio space.

Chicks n Hens is proud to have been Etsy's Featured Shop!

Frequently asked questions
If I see a design you created for a previous client I would like to reuse for my wedding, can I purchase prints or digital files of that exact design (or only change the illustration of the couple)?

In short, NO. I take pride in creating one-of-a-kind designs for each couple for their special day. If you are in love with a previous design I have created we can work together to create something with a similar vibe, but each wedding design will remain custom and unique.

How do I reserve a spot for my wedding project on your very limited calendar?

To reserve a spot for your project on my VERY limited schedule purchase a design fee for the desired items.

Are prints included in the design fee for each custom illustration?

Prints and/or digital files (if applicable) are a separate fee from the design fee. The design fee is a fee for the creation of your custom illustration, and also a placeholder for your project on my limited schedule. Prints and/or digital files can be purchased after you approve your design samples. (Printing costs are listed in the listing description of each item.)
