Welcome to the website of Buds 'N Beaks Art by Stephanie K. Ripka. I started out making handmade greeting and note cards with stamps and ink. Then I moved on to watercolor. Loved it so much, that now I commission House Portraits for lasting memories. I work full time as a bookkeeper in a real estate office, and spend my nights studying and painting.
Paper, Watercolor paints, pencils and markers are foundations of our handmade greeting cards.
Cards are hand drawn and inked to make a lovely black and white representation. They are on note card fronts, and can be colored especially for your bud.
Completed my first calendar for 2022 with Birds of Pennsylvania. The artwork can be made into prints, note and greeting cards. Email me your preference.
Buds 'n Beaks Blog shares fun facts about flowers, birds and Nature that are part of our Card Collections and Stationery.
