Shop By One Of Our Unique Artists

If it’s one thing that distinguishes Flying Panda from other websites, it’s that we love art—art featuring dogs, cats, horses, birds, wildlife and other animals. You’ll find that art on a variety of products, including jewelry, picture frames, placemats, garden flags,  hats, tees and sweatshirts, sleep shirts and more. It’s our focus!

We’d like you to know more about our artists, which include Sudeep Johnson (Dancimals), Carol Laughner, Karen Olsen, and Laura Seeley.

So, read on……



Sudeep Johnson (Dancimals)

Sudeep Johnson is a graphic/web designer living with her husband and their dog in Redwood City, CA. She has been an artist her whole life, using many different mediums to express the beauty of the natural world and has embraced digital art as her medium of choice. She owned and operated an arts & crafts business for 15 years, selling her handmade items that included gourds and other natural art forms. Her whimsical gourd cats, angels and goddesses were very popular as were her artistic renditions of pandas, zebras and other animals. She performs and teaches belly dancing for fun and relaxation. It also keeps her in great shape. Dance and art round out her life, but animals are her inspiration. Her favorite art subjects have always been animals, and she imparts her own style, color palette and sense of humor into her illustrations.


Carol Laughner

Born in Darien, Connecticut, Carol Sanchioni Laughner knew at an early age she was destined to be an artist. A graduate of Parsons School of Design with a BFA in illustration, she made her home in New Hampshire, where she continued her studies in Commercial Art at the Manchester Institute of Arts and Sciences. She also did graduate work in Art Therapy/Counseling at Notre Dame College in Manchester, NH, and enjoyed teaching art to children both at the Sharon Arts Center in Sharon, NH, and at the Stephenson Memorial Library in Greenfield, NH. Carol has completed many privately commissioned and commercial illustrations, including some for stories in several magazines published by Cobblestone, a publisher of children's books. She's also done editorial illustrations and in-house design for McGraw-Hill and Helmers Publishing.

Carol and her husband Vinoy (also an artist) continue to live with their beloved dachshund Lilly in New Hampshire. Lilly and her friends are inspiration for Carol's designs. We saw Lilly and later discovered Carol’s wonderful designs at an art faire in New Hampshire, and many of our customers are glad we did.


Karen Olsen

Hi.  I'm Karen Olsen, and I'm a graphic designer and illustrator.  My career has long had a focus in the high-tech world of Silicon Valley, but these days, I'm doing less of that and more art featuring my favorite subjects—cats, dogs and wildlife.  And, I'm having a lot of fun!  Out of this work has come FantastiKritters, a line of apparel and other products that feature my animal imagery.  I enjoy cat and dog shows, where I see the wonderful pedigreed animals that are the inspiration for some of my favorite designs, but my own cat, a long-haired tuxedo kitty named Rusty, is a mixed-breed...and quite unashamed about it.  Rusty is my muse, my companion, and as my gentle critic, is always at my side when I work.  Except when my husband is fixing a tuna sandwich.

Karen is also a published writer and an accomplished composer. She participates in the Ashiko Orchestra, which performs African drumming at many events in the San Francisco Bay Area. After the birth of her granddaughter, Karen gently prodded Flying Panda into developing a section of products, including some of her own designs, for toddlers and young people.

Laura Seeley

Laura Seeley is a New York Times best-selling children's book illustrator, as well as an award-winning author/illustrator of children's books.  Her books include The Book of Shadowboxes, Shadowbox Hunt, The Magical Moonballs, and McSpot's Hidden Spots.  Most recently she teamed up with Ray Negron, illustrating his New York Times best seller The Boy Of Steel, as well as his Amazon best sellers The Greatest Story Never Told and One Last Time.  Among other titles she has illustrated are Carmen Deedy's Agatha's Featherbed and Ruth Tiller's Cats Vanish Slowly.

Laura's paintings of cats have been seen in galleries around the country.  Her series of cats, Feline Fantasies, and of dogs, Canines In Color, are available as prints and giclees.  Commissions are welcome.  Her Kats For Kauses and Pups For A Purpose programs, in their infant stages, are designed to help raise funds for animals shelters, rescue foundations... any organizations for animals in need.  She participates in fundraising events and benefits, where partial proceeds of print sales go to help these causes.  Online purchasers can also elect to have a portion of their purchase proceeds go to the charity of their choice when they check out.

Since 1990, Laura has been doing interactive programs in elementary schools and libraries.  Emphasis is on the importance of rough drafts, editing, the power of words and self confidence.  The children draw with Laura while being encouraged to add stories to their pictures.  Book signings follow each session.

Laura lives in San Francisco with her three cats, Ebi, Fig, and Basil.
