Welcome to Milo and Woodstock Bookfest

Hope the New Year is Going Well,

The Elephants are herding in this Spring like weather and so happy for a new addition to their Family, brother to Rocco – Milo – a rescue pup from the Turks and Caicos. Milo is enjoying life in the country getting to know the beavers, birds, bears and other wonderful creatures. A puppy portrait of him will be done before he grows up, which is way too fast!

We are thrilled to be supporting events and featuring our products in additional venues as we lead up to International Women’s Day in March.

The shop features wildlife and nature greetings cards, bear/elephant T-shirts, mat prints and original watercolor paintings created by Samantha Taylor.

 If You Don’t Know About the Artist Yet……!!!

Jambo, I am Samantha Taylor, Founder of Elephant Art Shop – a diverse portfolio of wildlife, community and environmental conservation watercolor paintings, greetings cards and T-shirts inspired by my impressionable childhood in Kenya, East Africa. My mission is to advocate urgency for addressing environmental and humanitarian challenges through creative expression and empowerment. The elephant is a mascot signifying strength and optimism, protecting their tusks, survival for the future and overcoming climate change. There are many lessons we can learn from the lucky elephant, loyalty to its family, and working together to protect and restore resilient communities for our future generations.
