About Stefanie

Hi, I’m Stefanie.  I’m a Los Angeles native (yes, we do exist) who loves to create art and travel. On a recent trip to Thailand, I saw these fun and adorable terra cotta monk statues outside a Buddhist temple. Right away, I knew I had to paint them. So,  I decided do a series featuring three monks with different hand positions and brightly colored backgrounds. The monks received great feedback from everyone who saw them. And every time I looked at them, I smiled. I decided I wanted more people to see them and smile, so I put them on tote bags, then pillows, then tank tops, and then onesies. Friends and family responded well and I realized it was time to create a website so people like you can enjoy them, too. I hope my Happy Monk products make you as happy as they’ve made me!  Enjoy!
