    Announcement    Handcrafted, one-of-a-kind kites made with a bit of vintage goodness in the form of cotton, bamboo/wood, hemp and cotton string. We also make wide headbands made of handprinted batik fabric (because I couldn't find ANY quality made headbands on my own to keep my hair out of my face, so I made them when I found these gorgeous one-of-a-kind fabrics!).

    Note that we have FLYING kites AND kites that are perfect for use as photo props, party decor or to uplift your studio/office space or a child's room/playroom (listed under our 'Non-Flying' category).

    Both types of kites are unique gifts that can be brought out year after year to relive treasured memories.

    The story of Uplift Artisan started with a dream. Literally.

      We ordered a kite for my son’s proposal. They had so much fun using the kite as a photo prop and will keep it forever. It arrived quickly and was exactly what we wanted. Thank you so much for providing such a unique item.

      The Kite was gorgeous. It was the perfect decoration for the wedding. It will now hang on their wall as a reminder of their special day. Michelle is a gifted artist. Thank you for adding beauty to a beautiful day.

      Michelle created a custom kite that I gave to my wife on our wedding day. My wife absolutely loved the gift and I couldn't be happier with my interactions with Michelle!! Michelle not only extended her skill set to bring my vision to life but she also communicated clearly with me and always responded in a timely manner! She explored many different options, provided answers to all my questions and did not stop searching until she found a finished result that she was proud of! I cannot say thank you enough and I can confidently recommend her for your next project! THANK YOU MICHELLE!

    It all starts with a dream...

    welcome to uplift artisan

    I awoke on April 2009 ready to bust out of my skin. I had a dream where I was ‘told’ that I was going to start a business making handcrafted, heirloom kites and it would be called uplift artisan. (For the bigger doozy-of-a-story, go to www.upliftartisan.com).

    I paid attention.

    The photographs you see here and in my shop look exactly like those mystical, magical kites in my dream.

    I call them dream beacons.

    They are like so many simple things of beauty that uplift our lives in an instant: a field of sunflowers in bright bloom, multi-hued hot air balloons rising above us, a rainbow across a misty sky.

    Happiness-inducing, bubbly-inside, hopeful moments. Simple celebrations.

    Each uplift artisan kite is made by hand.

    With care.

    With love.

    With joy.

    So look up. To the sky, on your wall, or in your heart.

    Remind yourself or someone you love that…

    Dreams are real.

    They can soar.

    And so can you.
