Stanislawa (aka Stanis or Stannie) Kodman is perpetually drawing, painting, making books and jewelry, and taking photographs. 

Her ability to combine whimsical possibilities with exacting attention to detail has excited clients ranging from The Wall Street Journal, and The U.S. Post Office to Cedars-Sinai, Emory University, Peachtree Publishers, CARE, Guideposts, and the American Kennel Club. Her technique, which gives her illustrations a fluid and effortless appearance, can also be seen in her first illustrated children’s book GROW (written by Juanita Havill), which was included on the Chicago Public Library’s 2008 “Best of the Best Book List” and was nominated for the 2009/2010 Keystone State Reading Association’s “Keystone Reading Book Award.” Her design work for Emory University has won awards from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, the University & College Designers Association, the American Library Association, and Higher Education Marketing. 

Stanislawa loves to explore the inner-workings of creativity. It’s why she has degrees in design and illustration, studio arts with a focus in fiberal structure, painting and ink drawing, and modern fiction. Her infatuation with all things visual has also led her to create a series of illustrated hand-painted jewelry.

One look and Stanislawa’s passion for what she does comes through loud and clear. What you may not know is that she is also deeply devoted to her four-legged companions, that her work is deeply influenced by the time she spent living in New Orleans and that one of her favorite memories is three days she spent there without power, painting by the light of a kerosene lamp and eating home-made peanut butter pie.

Stanislawa is assistant creative director for creative services and brand manager at Emory University Communications and Marketing, and works as a freelance illustrator.

the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.
