Beauty in the
everyday, by hand

beautiful arts and goods, created by hand

The Cardinal Collective is fusion of fine art, hand-lettering, and beautiful living. 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.

Meet Christina

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

The quick lowdown on me: Born and raised in the South, I'm married to a very patient and handy guy named Stephen who never complains about my cooking. We have a slightly feral 5-year-old boy named Bennett, and a sweet little baby Jack. Our 2 pups Radley and Chase rule our house. I'm a history nerd with a passion for rescue animals, and get weird adrenaline rushes shopping at TJMaxx. I'm half-Greek, half-Heard County, Georgia and I absolutely love turning a blank piece of paper into a piece of art.

“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!!!!!”
