About Tori Tornado
We specialize in smiles and giggles through art, stationery and gifts. Why you ask? Well because, the world can always use a little more silly and ridiculous things to make us smile.
All original artwork is made with water-soluble inks and paints on acid-free, recycled paper. All of our products are made and printed in the United States.
Each design starts with pencil and paper. From there, it is either hand painted or transferred to a linoleum block to be hand carved and printed.
About Tori (hey, that's me)
Tori (me again), has worked as a graphic designer for 10 years. I, excuse me, she, has also worked as a bartender, childcare instructor, office manager, barista... (quite a variety) but has always been an artist at heart. Tori Tornado was born out of her funny way of looking at the world and turning it into art. She brings textures, layers and colors together with thoughts and inspiration that are not too sappy or cliché.
About the Name
Tori Tornado was a nickname given to Tori when she was a bartender working at a busy sports bar. This particular establishment had a long bar top that zigged and zagged. She whipped around that place like a... tornado.
