THE SKETCHY ARTIST is an art supply and gift boutique located in lovely downtown Northfield, Minnesota.
Owned and opperated by an artist, this quirky, fusion-concept shop is a delightful find to those who venture in.

There’s inspiration all around us in everyday life; our mission is to find what inspires, set it on a shelf and hope that a spark ignites.

We seek products that bring you to the doorstep of one or all three of these things -- whether it's a vivid tube of acrylic color, an odd little doll that beckons utter cuteness, or the perfect writing pen.
Surprise yourself with a great selection of quality art materials for all levels of talent. Indulge in the beautiful and often whimsical culture of Japan with a variety of pottery, candy & drinks, kawaii and traditional imported gifts. Explore a fun and unique assortment of greeting cards and stationary, plus a quality selection of journals, notebooks and pens from around the world. We also have a great kids section featuring product lines that encourage development and imagination. There's even a chalkboard little kids can create works of art on while the parents shop.

The Sketchy Artist is definitely the place to shop for something truly original and off the beaten path - whether you're an artist or not!
