About Us

"Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord is worthy of praise" - Proverbs 31:30, NIV

P31 ART & DESIGN is a Christian, family-run art and design company that was developed as a means to uplift our family's entrepreneurial spirit.  Our team is comprised of a mother-daughter duo with occasional contributions from her sons.  Through artist expression, we take pride in ourselves as we enjoy the experience of creation and celebrate the uniqueness of every work of art.


We are currently a fully operational online store that not only sells art, but also original pieces that are handcrafted and handpainted goods such as earrings, pouches, totes, and mugs.  There are no two items that are the same.  We also use our original paintings as inspiration for our fully customizable printable products for our journals, greeting cards, and wall art prints.  At P31 Art & Design, our art is our passion available for all to enjoy.  

Our company is located in Akron, OH, and officially came into fruition in 2021. We operate mostly as a virtual online entity and can be found across several marketplaces.  Our long-term goal is to eventually own and operate a brick and mortar storefront from which, as a hub we can offer a place for many artists to sell their art locally. 

Together the mother-daughter duo plans to bring awareness to Black Art while inspiring others to chase after their dreams.  Our primary goal is to continue to become active advocates of the Black Art community aspiring to build networks of connections that can last a lifetime.

Stephanie, Artist & Owner

My name is Stephanie from Akron OH. As an artist, I try to leave the world a little bit brighter as I go. My works are known for the capture of strength and beauty of the Black American culture. I love color and the feelings that radiate from the infinite creation of them. All of my art represents the undeniable grace bestowed upon all of those who choose life.

Inspired by my own trials and triumphs, I have developed a collection of bright, brilliance, and uplifting works of art with a focus on the contemporary modern genre. My preferred medium is acrylic but I do have a few pieces in watercolor and mixed-media art as well. It is important that the story of grace, mercy, and redemption be told through my artwork.

I am interested in learning new skills and continuing to further not only my education in art but cultivating new relationships with other artists while simply enjoying the process of both!
