About

My shop name derives from the beautiful Grimm's fairytale, Hans-My-Hedgehog, about a hedgehog boy who grows up to become king of the forest. It provided the inspiration for my shop theme: a whimsical animal menagerie. You'll see a few people here and there in my drawings, but animals steal the show.

I started drawing as a child of about 6, when the thought of owning a book I could draw in was the most exciting idea in the world. It still is, all of these years later.

I started drawing as a child of about 6, when the thought of owning a book I could draw in was the most exciting idea in the world. It still is, all of these years later. Though I work in Prismacolor, ink, and pencil, I find black and white pencil drawings, subtly rendered, to express my personality the best. There is a particular beauty to works in pencil that I've always loved. All of my drawings are the result of hours of diligent work. You will feel the time and love I've put into all of my prints and notecards, which I handcraft in my home.

My drawings are perfect for animal lovers, music lovers and children. I've designed them with kids in mind...imagine your child's room decorated with my happy animals. It's sure to make you smile.
