Amy Mason started Stony Brook Design in 1998
as a creative outlet for her constant doodling.
Today, Amy is a designer, illustrator and shop owner known for her
whimsical, bold graphics and pleasing colorways evoking ocean,
lightness and summertime happiness.

Living on Cape Cod, surrounded by the ocean, there is a wholesomeness that I've grown to appreciate

as well as a strong undercurrent of quirkiness in the landscape and its people. 

 

Inspiration comes from my beautiful family & friends, nature, pets, weathered old stuff, architecture, household junk... and the good ol' humor of everyday life. 

 

Cape Cod has taken me completely by surprise as I never thought I'd end up here. It has kept me happy, inspired, crazy-haired & busy-brained for over two decades.

Inspiration comes from the good ol' basic humor of everyday life with my beautiful family & friends, as well as pets, nature, weathered old stuff, architecture, household items, and whatever tickles my funny bone.z

Beautiful old architecture, windy stone walls, every town with its own subtle flavor, picturesque & pure.

 

Inspiration comes from every day life, people, pets, nature, weathered old stuff, architecture, household items, and whatever tickles my funny bone.

Laughing is essential, I tend to do that a lot. Same with hugs.

A design starts in my head, moves through my heart and comes out my hands. Learning to accept my style, my way of creating, has been a lifelong challenge. 

But, there's a freedom in allowing my hands to create in their own way. It keeps things unique, never static.

In the past year, I've branched out to working in wood, paint, and fabric. All new mediums for me.

 

Depending on the day, the mood, and what materials I have in front of me.

 

By allowing my own style to come through, Keeping things unique comes naturally, despite the temptation to emulate other artists,

being surrounded by so many artists and creative people where we live.

Hardworking people, a multitude of entrepreneurs, creative souls.

Since learning not to force another style on myself, I've been able to keep things unique.
