At Alexandra Art+Design we strive to create fun, whimsical and affordable art that is easy to share with others and will bring a smile to everyone’s faces.


Tired of paying $6+ for each birthday, anniversary and holiday card our goal is to give people a more personal and unique option for greeting cards that won’t break the bank. Each greeting card design is illustrated by hand, scanned and set up for printing. After printing at our local printer each card is individually cut, folded and packaged with love. Every card is left blank inside specifically so that you, the customer can customize the card however you would like and for whatever occasion you want.


Also in our shop are our gorgeous art prints. Each art print is of an original, traditionally illustrated piece. With two art print options available, our standard prints and giclee prints, your budget won’t keep you from affording one of our gorgeous works of art.

Sticking with our whimsical and affordable theme are bookmarks for coloring, stickers, magnets and more to give as gifts or to horde for yourself. 

Shopping at Alexandra Art+Design will leave you feeling great as you’re supporting a small, female-owned business where all of our products are made by hand at our home studio in Columbus, WI. Interested in selling our work? Visit our Commission/Wholesale page for more information.


 The Artsy Weirdo, the Tech Wizard and the Gremlins

Owner Alexandra Tepp-Marwitz, with 20+ years of illustration experience, a Bachelor’s in graphic design/media arts and a love for animals founded Alexandra Art+Design in 2018. Enraptured with animals and the feel of pen and pencil on paper Alexandra always wanted to do something with both. When she was just a little girl and was asked what she wanted to be when she grew up her answer was, “a veterinarian,” simply because she thought they got to draw animals all day and night. Still in love with animals Alexandra brings them to life in her own unique way using pencils, pens and sometimes markers. Each whimsical piece shows her view of an assortment of animals (mostly cats) or her views of people as if they were animals themselves.

Business manager Justin Marwitz lends his tech wizardry skills to our videos on Youtube and helping make our website as lovely as can be. He also lends a hand with packaging our products and assisting at events.

Alexandra and Justin currently reside in Columbus, WI with their two adorable gremlins (cats), Xena and Maggie.
