Work hard, play hard: Behind the scenes at Saltwater Kittens.

About the owner.

Saltwater Kittens opened in October of 2015 by me (Jeska!) as a fulfillment of my dream to pursue art and design without having to give up my most important job, caring for my daughter, Ruby and my son, Asa. With the wonderful support of my husband, I've been able to establish myself in the prints and design world but also keep rocking the stay-at-home-mom scene. We hail from the great state of Tennessee, and since I'm a firm believer in no-work-weekends, as a family we try to catch some of that sweet mountain air and spend as much time together as we can.

Saltwater Kittens?

Ah, yes. About that...

it mainly comes from an inside joke! Years ago my roommate and I would always drive past a pet shop that had the animals poorly listed on the outside glass. It would read:
And I would always giggle and say I wanted a saltwater kitten. After using it for some old blogs, I decided it'd be nice to "put it back on" and expand it as a brand. Our designs may be a little interesting, but they'll hopefully always catch your eye.
