Rowena Founder of Tinsy Thoughts

Hi! My name is Rowena. I use she/they pronouns. I am a weird human with a computer, a few too many pencils, pens, and far too much paint. I've been an artist for most of my life. Creating unique characters that inspire positivity and make a difference in the world has always been my passion. I made the big leap into ARTrepreneurship with the launch of Tinsy Thoughts™ in January 2021. I founded Tinsy Thoughts™ with one goal: "to help people see their beauty and worth." I believe in the power of love, self-love, and self-expression.

Tinsy Thoughts™ strives for positivity in all aspects of life - from empowering individuals through thoughts, words, and actions, to providing gender expression and identity resources for anyone who may need them. 

I write, design, and draw everything myself, while running the Tinsy Thoughts™ business from my living room, kitchen, and garage with the help of my partner Ang.

started doodling the Pinapel and Friends characters over 10 years ago, and in that time, they have evolved tremendously into the illustrations you see today. I wanted to create something whimsical, weird, personal, and helpful - something that people could also relate to. Pinapel And Friends™ is a cute and playful LGBTQIA2S+ inclusive world created to inspire self-love, self-care, and self-acceptance, to affirm gender identity and gender expression while changing the narrative around the use of gender pronouns.

It means so much to be able to share the Tinsy Thoughts™ world with you. My hearts smiles when I am able to make you smile with my creations, and I have lots more to come for Pinapel and Friends™ and my other world of Thought Monsterz™.
