Cute kid building a snowman on a 15” x 15” tote bag.
I’m very excited! After cleaning and reorganizing my workspace and teaching myself new skills, I’m ready to show my new work. Several new illustrations have been added with more to come.

About ClaireJohnsArt

On Etsy since 2017

Kids love color! Kids love silly and fun! Kids love ART!

I want my art to feed the creativity and imagination in all children. They love color! They love silly and fun!

Creativity and imagination are key skills and incredibly important to becoming well rounded and successful adults. Children are born with these abilities. When kids are surrounded by color and fun, they blossom just like beautiful flowers. You can actually feel it happening. Just sit in any classroom during story time. You'll feel it.

Children can see a picture and their imaginations kick into HIGH gear. Wonderful stories POUR from them about what is happening in that picture. With such ease! In amazing detail!

In today's fast paced and often routine life, art gives children a way to break out and give their imaginations wings. This is where all new and wonderful discoveries are made.

This goes for adults too, by the way. You're never too old to create.

Thank you.

    I believe children need art and color in their lives from a very young age. Art speaks to children about who they are and who they can be. It allows them to go inside and connect with their own creative nature; a skill they will need all their lives.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Yep! I can do that. I am able to add names, birthdates or quotes to some of my artwork as long as the customization does not require an entire rework of the art. Fees and time to produce custom work varies depending of the project. Email me and let's talk about your idea. I love helping people express their creativity.

Care instructions

My prints are reproduced with the very best inks that are light-resistant. However, no artwork should be hung in direct sunlight. For best results, your watercolor art should be framed behind glass and kept out of the sun.

Do I ship internationally

I do not ship internationally at this time. Mostly because it can get complicated and I'm a big CHICKEN.

How Do I Ship Your Items

Very carefully. I want you to be delighted with your purchase! For prints, I start with a backing board, then put into a clear archival cello bag to keep it clean. Once protected, I mail in a rigid mailing envelope to make sure it does not get bent on its way to you.

Processing Time

I know you are excited to receive your new purchase so I work to get it to you as quickly as I can - usually into the mail in 1-3 business days. Prints and cards are shipping via USPS and usually take between 3-5 days to arrive at their destination. Unfortunately, I have no control over your package once it goes to the post office. Holiday processing and shipping times will vary however.

How Do You Contact Me

Please send me an email via Etsy. I will try to respond within 24 hours.
