Welcome to the Cardinal Collective.

An art studio specializing in fine art, hand-lettering, and high-design lifestyle goods in Huntsville, Alabama.

beautiful arts and goods, created by hand

The process always begins with a blank canvas, then pen and paintbrush go to work. Our goal is to create original art pieces and high-quality designed goods that are unique, lovely, and — most importantly — spark joy.

Hi! I’m Christina Green, and the Cardinal Collective is my fine art and design studio based in Huntsville, Alabama.

For the past five years I've worked with wonderful clients, from private individual commissions to custom logo and artwork for large companies. No matter what the job entails, it is always created by hand.

I truly believe that when it comes to the more meaningful things— the gifts we give, the things we hang on our walls, the items in our lives that tell our stories or arrive with handwritten notes— that’s the stuff that evokes the most authentic joy.

In November 2018, we launched a line of products based on some of the Cardinal Collective’s most popular designs— notably the “Cityscapes” of Huntsville, Tuscaloosa, Auburn, and Birmingham, Alabama.

In a world full of artifice that we are inundated with by the touch of a phone screen, my goal is to always stay true to the authentic. The handcrafted. The stuff with a “soul.”

Each day offers up unexpected new opportunities for creativity. It is truly a joy to start each new day with a blank piece of paper.

Contact me to visit my studio in historic downtown Huntsville or to discuss a new project!

“Christina is skilled at taking a customer's vision and transforming it into a beautiful piece of timeless art. She welcomes my ideas for elements I want incorporated into a design, and generates a custom piece that is unique, special and features everything I envisioned - but even better than I imagined. I have worked with Christina on 3 pieces now - all gifts - and each piece has brought tears to the recipients' eyes. Thank you.”

“We commissioned custom calligraphy for our daughter’s wedding and it is beautiful!! As is the owner of this shop, Christina. She is talented, professional, and delightful, and truly exceeded expectations in helping us to meet our deadline. She met each question and tweak with patience and assurance. She even traveled with her calligraphy tools on an out of town family trip…with her new baby… to complete our order! I already have my eye on another one of her items for a baby gift for my niece! Thank you, Christina!!!!!”
