Meet the Maker
Hi, I'm Linh T Vo.
I'm the artist and creator of Fittonia Co. I create, illustrate, photograph, market, and ship every item you see here on this website.
I have been drawing ever since I was 4. I'm self-taught and I love creating art that reflects me and my daily life. I remember taking advantage of every recession in fifth grade trying to finish all my homework so I could go home and spend the whole night drawing. At the time, I was creating my first comic book series. It was released every Tuesday, so my friends usually gathered around my desk for a teaser the Monday before.
Then I grew up and drawing was something I did seldom :( Though becoming a full time artist was something I imagined myself doing one day.
Years passed and one day remained one day. It wasn't until 2020 that I got out of my own head and found the courage to take the first step. One day became day one, I opened my Etsy store in September 18, 2020. I started small by selling just a few sticker designs. Within half an hour of sharing my designs on Etsy, I had people buying them, like actual, real people buying my art and supporting me. That's just so wild and quickly became my favorite thing in the world.
Fast forward to today, I've created many different stickers, prints, magnets, pins, etc. and have shipped my art to 50 states and many different countries internationally. It is truly my biggest joy and pride. I'm constantly coming up with new ideas, trying out new art styles and mediums, improving my skills and mindset on my own pace for a living. This is an absolute dream come true for me. I enjoy what I'm doing so much and I'm so incredibly grateful for this and for every single one of you. You have no idea the impact you make on my life just by being here. So, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU (x100).
P.s: Fittonia was the very first plant I bought during quarantine and was the plant that inspired me to create my entire plant-inspired shop from the beginning → Fittonia Co.
