Thanks for visiting DirtySnouts.com.
My name is Stacey, and I am an animal loving graphic designer.
As a lifelong fan of 4-legged creatures, I have been known to go out of my way to interact with dogs, cows, pigs and goats when given the slightest opportunity to do so (visualize eye rolls from my family here).
As an art director and visual communicator, I use imagery to tell stories and convey information.
In 2016, after watching a video my husband sent me about a pig who paints, I decided to merge my two passions.
Rescued as a piglet from a slaughterhouse, Pigcasso was given an opportunity to thrive and enjoy her life. She and her savior, Joanne from Farm Sanctuary SA, inspired me to learn more about factory farming. I was appalled by my discoveries and the more I read, the more upset I became.
Dirty Snouts™ was born from my desire to raise awareness about issues that I believe are STILL unknown to many people – people who would not want to enable the atrocities of animal agriculture if they knew what was involved in the production of not just meat, but also eggs and dairy, on both large and small scale operations.
My work is intended to arouse curiosity, start conversations and encourage action. If everyone who notices one of my t-shirt designs, jewelry or accessories is motivated to eliminate or consume fewer animal products (or at least gather more info about what goes on in the animal ag industry), then we’re making progress that benefits animalkind, our planet and our own health.
All Dirty Snouts™ products are my original designs. The jewelry and accessories are handmade by me. The t-shirts are custom printed by hand in Wisconsin, using eco-friendly methods. Print runs are done in small batches to keep costs down and to enable me to donate to help farmed animals in need. As Dirty Snouts™ grows, I hope to expand my offerings, as well as add organic and recycled clothing options. I also use environmentally friendly materials and recycled packaging, and try to get all of my materials in the US.
I have loads of ideas and creations in the works! Please check back and see what’s new. Or, better yet, sign up for my mailing list and follow me on social media (preferably Instagram).
A minimum of ten percent of sales are donated to farm animal sanctuaries, which are wonderful places caring for innocent and often abused or neglected beings, many of whom have suffered immensely. I encourage you to visit one if you never have!
Thank you for your interest,
