Founder, illustrator and fellow mama, Essie Griffin, began creating her silhouettes during a time of financial struggle within her family. Back in 2012, as a former 2nd grade teacher and new mom, she wanted to create a silhouette of her son and her husband (Dave) taught her how to do it. He encouraged her to try selling them online since computer illustrated silhouettes were pretty unique back then. As a stay at home mom to two (soon to be three) littles, it has been a blessing to create this timeless art for so many families, all the while getting to do it from home
Over the past several years things have changed quite a bit. As our children have gotten older and their schooling needs became greater (we are a homeschool family) the need for more balance became pressing. As of today, Dave now is on board full time and this has become very much a family business! We are very thankful to get to do this together and we put our hearts into everything we produce here at AFPS.
Based on the East Coast outside of Philadelphia, all silhouette products are proudly (and thoughtfully) illustrated, printed, made and packaged in the USA.
