Renee Garner of Wolfie and the Sneak

Taryn D. wrote to me about Renee Garner’s etsy shop, Wolfie and the Sneak, and I loved it so much I had to spread the word because it’s fun, bright, spirited, and perfect for those of you that collect prints like I do. I’m a little obsessed with print collecting right now, but whatevah. It beats smoking crack.

Somehow I think I’ve heard of Renee before, but I can’t be sure. Anyway, now I know who she is and so do you. We’re all so savvy when it comes to these indie artists, aren’t we? And there are so many great ones out there, it’s fantastic how we can own work for so little moolah to replace all the years of framed prints we may have from big box stores. Now I purchase only art from friends, galleries, eBay, or etsy. It’s a pledge I made with myself. Support artists. The joy of framing things you love created by people that put so much of themselves into it, sheer pleasure! And it doesn’t have to be expensive…


I find that everything Renee creates appeals to me on some level, especially since she uses colors that I like and lots of animal imagery. But I’m crazy in love with the color-it-yourself prints (I just purchased these, shown below) because they’d give me a chance to be a little creative and have fun without stressing over my inability to draw like she does. Now I can take part in this art, and hang it on my wall, knowing that the color choices came from me. That’s sorta cool.


Psst: Renee has a beautiful blog, and she is giving away her seed pod print (below top left) if you are one of the first 5 to comment on this post today! Not here on decor8, over on Renee’s blog…


Thanks for writing in, Taryn!

    Thank you for this post! For the past three years I have been slowing weeding out all of my “framed art” from big box stores and I am almost there. It helps that I still do most of my own framing (with frames from big box stores)!

    What a fabulous showcase of prints! The little parakeet is totally adorable. I want to do a print collage on the wall in my entryway, and have started collecting handmade prints and photographs from indie artists/friends myself. Thanks for the lovely inspiration!

    Oh, and by the way – you’re right. Collecting prints totally beats smoking crack. Let’s not forget Mrs. Houston’s assertion that “Crack is wack!”

    Betty – Most are limited edition archival prints, copies of original paintings that Renee does.
