Art Licensing Options

Make It Easy License – Free!

Thanks for your interest in using my digital artwork in your own creations.

I create and share my art in the hope of encouraging creativity and helping entrepreneurial crafters, makers and designers save time and money. I try to be as generous as possible with my licensing, so you can create without worrying about super specific license terms.

Creating art for MandyArtMarket.com and my third party shops (Etsy, Creative Market, etc) is my full time job. Please consider the many hours of time and effort that go into creating my art. Please use it in good faith, within the terms of the included Make It Easy License.

All the Best,
