Stamps by Artist
Jill PENNEY and Daniel TORRENTE met at art college, married (on Halloween, of course!) and are both professional artists. Their drawings are a perfect pairing for our rubber stamp line. Jill has drawn images such as the Quasimoto group, Moonbelly, and Babycakes. Her style is sweet, clean and open; great for applying colored pencils or watercolors. Daniel images are very detailed and intricate.
Amy Wilson Wellenstein began drawing her incredible underwater sea creatures for us out of her love, as well as her husband’s love, of scuba diving. Her altered books are brilliant too! Amy has been published in most all industry magazines, as well as Tweety Jill Publications books.
Janet Klein has been drawing all her life. She was a grammar school art teacher who did some of the most incredible work with her students.
Janet's work has been published in most of the industry magazines as well as in Tweety Jill Publications books. Janet resides with her husband Jess, and their two adorable Doodledogs, Phoebe and Humphrey. Janet can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Janet has a new blog at www.veralanestudio.com.
Olivia Thomas started drawing when she was old enough to hold a crayon and also began sewing at about the same time. Olivia is an inspiring artist as anyone who has taken classes from her will attest. Her work has been in all of the industry magazines, plus some specialty publications by Stampington and the magazine, Cloth, Paper, Scissors. You can find more of her work at www.oliverose.com
Kylie D’Orio is young, enthusiastic, energetic and drawing comes second nature to her. We met Kylie at her parents’ bird shop; thus her drawings of our feathered friends. Although Kylie can draw anything, we asked her to draw exotic birds. We love her work and know that there are others out there that love handling birds; love sharing their home with a feathered friend or two! Kylie’s art will speak to those people. She has captured the spirit of the individual breeds. We wish Kylie a long and wonderful life in the arts!!!
Susan Mahoney is a mom of two beautiful girls and Susan says she draws at night to unwind. Her images are unusual, curious and atypical; outlandish, but have a special softness to them. Do be sure to take a look at them! They are great for children, as well as those adults that want the uncommon.
Kristen Powers. I have loved Kristen’s work forever. When I first began stamping, I was drawn to her small, petite images.
Josie Cirincione Josie has now completed her THIRD book.

Maryse Carrier We love what she does and so do her followers! Maryse’s images are whimsical and open, leaving lots of room for watercolors or colored pencils. These images make you smile.
Carol’s Collection. That’s me. Since college days I have been hoarding quotes and sayings and now have a notebook full from decades of collecting. And, since I cannot draw, I have turned some interesting family photos, as well as those family photos of a friend, into fun rubber stamps. My criteria for a good photo is one that makes me laugh. I hope you too will enjoy!
