J.AustinRyan: Art For Kids

July 23, 2014

By Tab Byrum

Some you of you may already be familiar with the art of Marnie Vollenhalls and her colorful creations, but I wasn’t until recently when I was perusing Etsy looking for something completely different than art for kids.


A native of California, Marnie and her family moved to Texas several years ago with her husband’s job.  While living in California Marnie had worked for a high end furniture company, working with other artists on creations for the company.


 After moving to Texas Marnie decided to do her own thing and her company J.AustinRyan (named after her 3 boys) was born. Today she sells her creations to shops the world over and works with several online stores, you can also buy directly from her.

I love the retro vibe of her art and especially her series focusing on Hawk the little suburban dog and his adventures, as well as all of his friends.  







 Marnie is also mural artist and has painted some incredible works of art in private homes.



Check out Marnie and her work on Etsy where you can buy prints of her work for a great price and frame on your own, or her own website where you can see her most recent original works of art.
