ABOUT

Welcome to Winnefred Austin.

Pull up a seat, pour some coffee. We're happy to have you here in our corner of the world.

Located in Birmingham, Alabama — Winnefred Austin is rooted in scripture and storytelling "for such a time as this." 

I’m Ashley Steiner—founder, artist, and Winnefred Austin’s many generations past granddaughter. From the day I could double-fist crayons at less than a year old, I have loved drawing. Growing up, I always created homemade greeting cards to give friends and family for most any occasion. This passion has led into a lifelong pursuit of creating hand-drawn illustrations for an array of products including calendars, planners, journals, books, notecards, and much more. I am a full believer that a blank page and freshly sharpened pencil hold an unparalleled excitement of opportunity. It's the kind of magic waiting to appear one line at a time. Nothing is quite like capturing the simple joys of everyday life through handwritten words and illustrations.

Winnefred Austin was a London lady turned American pioneer. Today, the company’s hope is to capture her pioneer spirit with products giving a nod to practicality, a touch of old-fashioned whim, and a timeless style to carry through every adventure.

Let Winnefred Austin be your go-to gal! As you write your own story, take Winnefred with you wherever you go.

“For such a time as this” -Esther 4:14
