Welcome to Lily and Thistle!

My name is Hannah Stevenson.  I am a "Mother" to four charming children: Laurel, Maisy, Norah and Ollie and "Wife" to a great guy named Jeff. I am also an artist.

Lily&Thistle is the name of my art studio (just moved up from the Kitchen Table!).  The name is really meaningful to me as I (along with Jeff) am doing my best to raise our children to be pure and authentically beautiful like a lily, strong and courageous like a thistle.

Whether you are a Mother, Grandmother, Aunt, or Friend to a special little child, I hope you will enjoy your stay here and find inspiration and comfort as you do some of your most important work.  The work and joy of raising children!

To learn more about me and the dolls, you can check out my blog here or view a short video here.
