I founded Summer Solstudio with a simple vision in mind, to bring beauty to our surroundings.

With that vision in mind, I curated a series of products and services designed for people to nurture the special relationships in their lives. The emotions, nostalgia and human connection that art can bring are what attracted me to start this creative studio. I want it to grow to give back in many ways.

I want you to shop Summer Solstudio products knowing you will Spread light, through art.


How it started

I started to create art prompts with the youth I served in my "day job" as a way to connect with them when neither of us could verbalize our thoughts. I soon began creating custom cards for coworkers and commissioned art for their friends. Then, came the spring of 2020.

During my time out of work I created a small series of artwork and eventually signed up for my first market ever. I jumped outside my comfort zone and created what is now Summer Solstudio and launched it on Summer Solstice. Every Alaskan's favorite day of the year and it has brought me so much joy. 


About the Artist

I'm Tanya O'Brien. Owner, designer, and dreamer of all things Summer Solstudio. I'm a first generation Mexican American and have lived in Alaska's Kenai Peninsula most of my life where currently spend most of the year with my husband and husky. My favorite drinks are coffee, Matchas, London fogs and the occasional legit margarita. If you can't find me, I must be kayaking, strolling a beach, having a picnic anywhere, or enjoying an easy hike on Gods beautiful green earth.

I have always had a desire to create and have been deeply obsessed with stationery, office supplies and surface design since I can remember. I'm so excited for this new chapter and hope it will inspire others along the way.
