We first noticed Tina Wenke’s artwork in a Leanin’ Tree catalog and it didn’t take long to add her to the Crown Point Graphics family! We licensed several designs in January that same year, and since that time many of her beautiful, happy, fun designs have been added to our line. One of those first designs, “Whimsical Thank You” continues to be one of our best sellers.
Tina and her husband Michael, also an artist and Tina’s business partner, are a pleasure to work with. They are in touch with artwork trends and willing to customize designs to fit Crown Point Graphics’ needs. They often reach out to us asking if there is anything in particular we are looking for. It is a special treat when we are able to meet face-to-face with Tina and Michael, reviewing new concepts and bouncing ideas around. We’ve dreamed up many products during those informal meetings.
Working with Tina the past 10 years has been wonderful! We look forward to seeing the most recent designs we’ve licensed go into production, and the new designs she will create.
"I always knew I wanted to be an artist and began my career after art school in Cincinnati, Ohio where I’ve lived my whole life. I’ve had the pleasure to create illustrations for lots of fun products like greeting cards, gifts, party papers, stamps and even baby diapers…and most recently, garden flags. I’m always very enthusiastic about new projects and I truly hope that my art brings a little joy to anyone who has the opportunity to see it."
"I live with my three children, who have been my primary source of inspiration over the years, and my husband Mike, also an artist. We work together in our in home studio. When not working, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, gardening, and everything creative. I love making my own jewelry and artsy handbags and totally enjoy teaching art to young children."
