Announcement   Welcome! 2017 is the Year of the Rooster.

My shop specializes in unique illustrated greeting cards, tea towels, table cloths, table runners, prints, calendars as well as custom stationary and designer pillows.

The work combines a proverb with each of the animals of the Chinese New Year. I am inspired by the color and folk art of my children's Chinese cultural heritage and that of my own Scandinavian heritage. The animals each have their own unique personality and have an intergenerational appeal.

As an illustrator and Graphic Designer I love custom requests. StillwaterArtStudio customizes just about everything you see listed in the shop. If you don't see what you are looking for, contact the shop. I create and print upon request.

Any of the zodiac animals can be printed on A-2 thank you notes, A-7 cards, A-6 cards or flat personalized note cards. If you don't see a listing with the animal of your choice request the listing and we will print them for you.

Are you wondering what your animal is? I have listed animals and their years below:

I was so impressed by the quality of art and my packages arrived in great condition and much faster than I anticipated. Diane, the artist and owner was so quick to respond to my inquiries and agreed to my request to write my family's names on their individual prints. I highly recommend this shop. Diane even sent me a card in the mail containing stickers of the items we ordered. It was a wonderful gesture that didn't go unnoticed. The level of customer service at Stillwater Art Studio is unmatched. I would most definitely recommend them and make future purchases.

About

Bringing Chinese Culture home through Chinese New Year

StillwaterArtStudio etsy shop evolved after I had illustrated several of the Chinese New Year zodiac animals for our Minnesota Families with Children from China group. Every year adoptive families would come together to celebrate the cultural heritage of our children. The animal of that year would be the mascot on t-shirts. This volunteer effort launched the current family of 12 animals shown in the shop.

I enjoyed illustrating these animals and giving them personality and in Chinese tradition, coupled them each with words, or a proverb. Opening an etsy store was a perfect fit and since 2009 I have been able to share the new year through cards, calendars and gifts.

I continue to add illustrations and products - the designs are perfect for valentine's day, birthday, party invitations, calendars, linens and pillows. I am developing a 'baby shop' within my store. Visit often and see how each new year brings new products to my etsy shop.

Thank you for shopping at StillwaterArtStudio
