Karen Swartz

Artist/ Maker

Karen is a digital illustrator with a love of birds, fantasy, and all things textural and tactile. Her designs are on the covers of our journals, which she makes by hand, and she also works on researching and developing new products for us to make together.

Justin Melendez

Scientist/ Maker

Justin is a scientist with a PhD in Genetics! He also does wildlife and product photography, and works on researching and developing new products for us to make together. Often Justin's interest in new materials, and the ensuing experiments lead us to a new, wonderful hand-crafted product that we can share with the world!

We make everything in our home studio (or what some might call a dining room) in St. Louis, MO.
All our journals are engraved on our Glowforge laser that lives in our well ventilated back room.
