Yardia by Brigida Swanson | Art, illustration and education

Hi, I'm Brigida Swanson of Yardia. I create Pacific Northwest-inspired cards and gifts for nature lovers. A customer recently told me that she started tearing up a little bit when she picked up one of my cards, and that’s how she knew she needed to buy it. This is why I do what I do, to help my customers express sentiments that can be hard to say out loud, through heartfelt products that speak for themselves with empathy and a little bit of magic. 


Through Yardia, I create watercolor illustrations that are printed onto a variety of gift and paper goods. Yardia products give voice to what remains constant and true: that there’s magic in nature, there’s empathy to be found in connection and there's harmony in the community we build together. It all starts with a simple card, carefully selected artwork or lovingly wrapped gift, reaching out from one person to another and seeing the good and wonder in each other.

You can also find Yardia products in over 25 stores in the US and Canada. Want to become a wholesale customer? Visit the wholesale page to complete a buyer application and to receive access to the Yardia wholesale catalog.
