ABOUT

J. Caress Studio offers the LGBTQ community a range of artistic products that reflect our lifestyle, including unique greeting cards for special occasions and stunning artwork celebrating our love. We all talk about gay pride, but items such as as these can be an important source and reflection of that pride.

Owners Caroline and Jessica Kaplan

We want to help rectify the very real fact that our demographic has long been underrepresented and underserved. As lesbians and artists, we established our wife-and-wife-owned creative company to focus our talents on increasing the visibility and inclusiveness of the gay community.

Jessica is an artistic jack-of-all-trades, holding college degrees in Fine Arts and Interior Design. Caroline is an illustrator and graphic designer holding degrees in the same fields (our love affair first blossomed over 15 years ago while we were both studying Interior Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC), along with a Bachelor of Science in Biology/Pre-Med and a Master of Science in Medical Illustration. Our professional backgrounds include retail, marketing, design and illustration services.

Together we form J. Caress Studio, where we strive to design and illustrate LGBTQ-themed artwork specifically for people like us—those seeking that special, very personal item you can't quite find anywhere else.
