Our Story


Hello! We are Aimee and Monica. We love to draw and paint original art, create charming and quirky characters, and explore unexpected color combinations. In 2015 we founded Moncharis, our illustration and design studio.

Old picture books, flowers, animals, antique textiles, and family inspire our work. Through our illustrations and paintings, we hope to bring happiness to your life.

Our designs are suitable for fabric, apparel, games, home and garden decor, and a variety of paper goods.

In 2017, encouraged by our family and friends, we started a greeting card and art print business.

Our love for stationery began at a young age because we used to send each other cards and collect paper goods when we were children. We now believe that stationery holds a special place in our society because it brings people closer together through correspondence. In a world filled with so much noise, reading someone's hand-written message can be very refreshing and meaningful.

We mainly use gouache, color pencils, and digital media to make our illustrations. Then, our greeting cards and art prints are printed right here in the USA so that you get a product you’d like to hold onto. All of our products are made to order since we believe it reduces waste and keeps cost low. For that reason, we only sell greeting cards in packs of 10 and digital downloads. We think this is extremely helpful since you won’t have to go to the store or wait for your parcel every time you’d need a card. Cards will be readily available whenever a special moment comes up!
