About chicksnhens

Sales 1,808
On Etsy since 2010

Chicks n Hens, Illustration Co.

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. Her passion and talent for painting has inspired me since childhood.

I create illustrations with vintage vibes, whimsy design elements, and cheerful colors. All of my illustrations begin as a drawing in my sketchbook, and transition to full color artwork ready for printing on my carefully curated card stock selections. 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.

I have dedicated the past 9+ years to illustration work and the wedding industry. In 2012, I graduated with a BFA in Art and Design from Purdue University with the best senior portfolio. My illustration work and custom wedding designs have been featured in large scale publications online and in print on Brides, The Knot, Style Me Pretty, Wedding Day Magazine, Carats and Cake, Emmaline Bride, Exquisite Wed Mag, Bridal Musings, The Etsy Journal, and more.

Working with couples all over the world, my wedding projects range from casual Iowa barn weddings to elegant neoclassical Roman villas, from quaint California churches to large scale beach resort weddings in Puerto Vallarta.

Outside of illustration work, I am a wife and mama of three. <3

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)?

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?

Book your project by purchasing a design fee for the desired custom cards here on my Etsy here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/chicksnhens?ref=simple-shop-header-name&listing_id=281823626§ion_id=21891174

Is the design fee a separate charge from prints?

Yes. The design fee is a fee for the creation of your custom illustration. It also acts as a placeholder for your project on my limited schedule. Prints and/or the high resolution digital files (available for most designs) are available after you approve your design samples via email.

Can I purchase a design fee now, and start my project later?

Yes. I accept limited orders, I recommend you book your project as soon as you know you would like to work together.

What if I find the timing does not work for my project after booking?

I sometimes offer rush orders for a fee (first come, first serve). Cancellations are not accepted even if you fail to read the timing prior to booking. Please be sure to read the timing listed in the item description.

Are timing quotes guaranteed?

Timing for custom illustration projects are quoted as rough estimates. Timing does vary from project to project. Please keep this in mind when booking.

What if my wedding is cancelled?

Design fees act as a placeholder for your project on my limited calendar. As a small business who accepts limited orders, I do not offer refunds for cancellations for any reason. Thank you for understanding.

Can I transfer my purchase to another item?

Sales are non-transferrable.

What if I find a mistake on my prints?

I do my best to ensure each design is perfect, and I recommend each client have multiple other people read over their designs prior to printing. Chicks n Hens is not responsible for any error found after printing. Refunds will not be provided for errors found after printing (even if the mistake was my fault). In the rare instance that this occurs, please do reach out. I am happy to work with you on correcting any errors and new prints.

How are designs created?

All of my custom illustrations are created based off of submitted questionnaire information + photos of the people, pets, and locations the clients provide. I create each illustration from sketch to final print in my art studio in Indianapolis, Indiana.
