Get To Know Me
Hello! My name is Kotryna (pronounced kuh-tree-nah) & I am the founder and creator of PEACHCREAMPRINTS! I am a 21 year old full-time college student from Southern California and am currently in my senior year of college (yay)! I have lived in CA my whole life & love it here! In my free time, I love to spend time with my friends & dog Ruca (she's the cutest pup)! I also am such an ambivert lol! I love traveling, exploring new places, & meeting new people, but also love spending a quiet night at home watching movies and eating snacks haha!
If you would have asked me two years ago what I would be doing now, I definitely wouldn't have been able to imagine all of the amazing things I have done with PEACHCREAMPRINTS.
I opened up PEACHCREAMPRINTS first on Etsy in September of 2020. I was working at my same retail store job since high school and really wanted to pursue something more than that at the time. With having time to be home due to the pandemic, I happened to find some videos on YouTube showing other young, successful women running their stationery businesses. It didn't take long for me to realize that I too could start a business surrounding whatever I love to create. Ever since I was a child, I would always be doodling on everything I could! I never really considered myself an artist though and never pursued anything creatively before this business since I didn't think "little" doodles could be seen as art. However, I took a chance at this business with learning how to do digital art, investing what I saved from my retail job into my materials & supplies, and went for it! Flash forward almost two years later, I have almost a thousand sales on Etsy, over twenty-thousand friends on Instagram, done in-person vending markets, expanded my products greatly, worked with other big businesses on custom work, and now am launching my very own website! I am so grateful to be able to share my work with so many people, see how impactful positive art can be, and proud that I have kept at this business!
Although my educational career path is so different than what I am doing with this business, I hope to be able to turn PEACHCREAMPRINTS into something I can do full-time after I am done with college! I plan to keep expanding products on this website, start getting my products into in-person boutiques and stores, and I am just looking forward to all the amazing connections & things that I can create with this business. <3
