Spotlight on: Peony Peacock Studio


Where are you located?

I am located in Jersey City, NJ right across the Hudson from New York City.

How long have you been in business?

I’ve been selling my art since 2007, though it was more of a part-time thing that I pursued on the side back then. The nature of my work has also evolved a lot since then. I have always been a hand painting artist but did more of nature themes, fabric art, and art on other mediums before I started my hand painted jewelry. The pet portrait line is just about a year old and I’m immensely happy to have found my niche in it.


How would you describe your business?

My business is a source of pure joy and an avenue for the fulfillment of my dreams, which are pursuing my art and being a stay home mom to my almost 4 year old girl. I love painting for my clients; the joy I feel when a pet mama gleams with excitement over her personalized dog/cat jewelry is priceless! I immensely enjoy doing custom work, as I get to interact with my clients a lot more and also learn along the way.


What kind of items do you sell?

Currently, I sell hand painted jewelry that includes pet portrait jewelry (pendant necklaces, bracelets, key chains, earrings, bookmarks), accessories (purses), pet portraits on canvas, etc. Very soon, my line will be expanding to offer cards, mugs, art prints, and more.


Do you have any new or exciting items that you would like to highlight?

New items that I’m extremely excited about and that are just in time for the Holidays, are my custom pet portrait ornaments. These are just the perfect keepsakes to cherish one’s fur baby/babies. Beautifully painted with lots of attention to detail on wood slices, these ornaments make great decorations for your tree or to gift a loved one!


Do you have any pets?

I do not own any pets at the moment, but plan on getting a small pup next year as my lil girl grows up and is ready for one!


Tell us about the humans behind your business!

I am primarily the sole hands behind my business and so very proud of it! I am the artist/designer, the photographer, the person behind packaging, shipping, and everything else there is. I am thankful to my supportive husband and darling daughter to be able to do what I do!


What else would you like readers to know?

I’d love to have the opportunity to create for you – I feel honored to paint your precious pup or kitty and make you a keepsake to cherish him or her forever!
