About the Artist


Hello! Thanks for stopping by!
I'm Meiska, an artist and illustrator living in Nashville. I've long loved antique objects and artwork, especially silhouettes. I created several for friends and family members during my college years, but after the birth of my son, I drew his tiny portrait, and I truly knew how special a silhouette could be. Delighted by the outcome of his silhouette, I decided to offer them alongside original artwork on my website. So there you have it: New motherhood mixed with my love of art and traditional antique silhouette portraiture brings you these very customizable, extremely detailed silhouette portraits. Feel free to email me at for more info, and be sure to follow us on instagram @missthistleshop (soon to be @thistlecottagehome) for frequent SALES!
