Lana Manis ~ modern folk art for your heart & home
Until I get my business website up and running and all names under one roof, you may find my work at Etsy. Just click on the shop name to see more.
You may also click on the links at the left to see galleries of my past work.
All my life I have loved playing with paper, pencils, pens, paint, fabric, needles, thread, ribbon, found objects, bits and pieces no one else wants... anything that could be used for art. For the last several years, I have continued to play with these tools, but have been blessed to do it as a job, not just for fun... although I'd do it even if I didn't sell anything.
I have to work with my hands.
It's a part of me.
It's that simple.
My work has been published in Better Homes and Gardens Make It Yourself 2012, FOLK, Better Homes and
Gardens Holiday Crafts 2011, Romantic Homes, GreenCraft (a Stampington
publication), Early American Life, Create and Decorate, Victoria, Arts
& Crafts, and several online home decor and wedding blogs, as well
as a book called Playing with Books: Upcycling, Deconstructing, and
Reimagining the Book.
I sell under the business names of Honeysuckle Lane, Simple Joys Paperie, and most recently, Lana Manis Designs.
