Introducing Shawna Stobaugh {illustration & design}

Cheerful designs by Shawna Stobaugh are sure to make your day a little brighter! Her soft, sweet colors are calming and whimsical. I also love the added sense of humor! Here is what Shawna had to say about her creative journey, "I always knew I loved art, but didn't have a personal style until I was 23 years old. It came from what was going on in my life at that time. My sisters had all had kids, and everything around me was cute and sweet. It really influenced my art and what I enjoyed working on. As their kids grew up, I found that my personal style did not. I was still working on things that were cute and juvenile. I finally realized when my surroundings changed, and my art didn't that I had found my personal style. I loved what I was creating and how it made me and others feel. I had finally found my niche."
