Announcement    Notecard and sticker shipping is free within the United States!

If you live outside the U.S. or Canada and wish to make an order, please send me a message. The high cost of tracked shipments ($17 to ship one notecard!) makes it tough to ship overseas, but we can work something out if you're willing to 1) take a chance on an untracked package, or 2) pay to have it tracked. I don't like it but it's the only way, sadly.

Thanks for visiting!

Where the Forest Friends come from

As native Minnesotans, my husband and I live most of the year on an island on a northern Minnesota lake, and spend our winters in Duluth. My art came as a surprise late in life. I had taken classes from various Minnesota artists in oils, acrylics, watercolor, and pastels, but I still didn’t know what to paint. One night as I was playing around in my “studio” — back then, a table in a corner of our bedroom -- a little mouse playing a Swedish nyckelharpa appeared on my paper. She was the first of my forest friends, which now include rabbits, raccoons, foxes, porcupines, and more. I’m influenced by the illustrators of old children’s books — especially Beatrix Potter and Jill Barklem — and by the contemporary illustrators Sven Nordqvist and Mauri Kunnis. But my main influences are the indigenous animals of northern Minnesota.

    I enjoy using watercolor to create an imaginary world that’s kinder and gentler — and, I hope, funnier — than the real one.
