JIGGY Puzzles has always been a go-to for beautiful puzzles you want to keep and hang on the wall. But now the puzzle company is supporting female artists in a brand new way. JIGGY Studio, which launched on October 4, is a brand new platform that acts as a boutique marketplace to provide emerging female artists with the opportunity to monetize their artwork by turning it into puzzles.

Since launching in 2019, JIGGY has received thousands of artist applications to be part of curated JIGGY collections, as well as requests for art styles from puzzle doers. After speaking with artisans, reading customer DMs, and organizing artist focus groups, the company created JIGGY Studio with 30 artisans and over 100 new designs (with so much more to come in the future).

In a press release, JIGGY founder Kaylin Marcotte wrote that Studio artists will keep 25 percent of net sales from their puzzles and each puzzle comes with glue and tools so that puzzlers can keep and frame the artwork after they’re done assembling.

You can learn more about each of JIGGY Studio’s featured female artists over on the JIGGY website, too, as well as shop by artist. Allison Hall, Charly Clements, Joanna Muñoz, Erum Khalili, Edwina Owens Elliot, Katy Hirschfeld, Joy Ting, and Farah Alhamawi are all featured on the Studio homepage. But other artists, including Megan Roy, Kendra VanDruff, Caverly Smith, and Shea O’Connor (to name just a few) also have pieces that have been turned into puzzles that are available to shop.

Head over to JIGGY Studio to hunker down with a beautiful puzzle and to find your new favorite artist.
