What Chris & Sharon Believe

We believe that everyone is an artist.  That creativity makes the world go round.  That busy hands are happy hands.  That there is no bad color.  We believe  that your art voice is waiting to sing.  We believe that everyone has a story waiting to be told through their art.  Our mission is to inspire you to make art that makes you happy - discover your creativity, it's waiting for you!

We are sisters, best friends, and the founders of Red Lead Paperworks in St. Louis, Mo. Our art has been published in the St. Louis Post Dispatch, Mary Englebreit Home Companion, Better Homes and Gardens, as well as several Stampington & Company magazines.

Our wood pennants are featured as a good thing in the Martha Stewart Living Magazine Sept. 2014 - thank you Martha!

We design our own line of rubber stamps, stencils, collage sheets, embellishments, and inks.

Here is what others say about us: The ever evolving brainchild of 2 sisters, Red Lead is a modern crafters dream come true. If hand made papers, and hundreds of artistic rubber stamps aren't enough to set ones artistic energy aflame, the shop was built around a love of modern vintage - before vintage became cool.  Red Lead has everything your mixed media heart desires: from papers to stamps, trinkets, brads, buttons, charms, fabric, ribbon, and art supplies.
