About

The Blonde Dutch Girl always thought she'd be a veterinarian. Until she got into vet school 7 times and all she could think about was being creative.

Once, while on a medical trip to Costa Rica and Nicaragua, a man said to me, "You're the only blonde on this trip! Are you Swedish or Norwegian?" I said, "Nope! I'm Dutch" He sighed, smiled, and said, "Ahh, the blonde Dutch girl..." And that's where The Blonde Dutch Girl was first established!

I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin, surrounded by farmers and cornfields and dairy cows - pretty black and white dairy cows - and lots and lots of Dutch people whose names started with "Van" and "Ten" and other variations of typically Dutch names. And our own little "urban farmette" where we raised puppies, kittens, bunnies, fish, gerbils, and any stray animal that crossed my path. So I figured (and was told) I would be a veterinarian. But, God planted a seed in me for justice, compassion, creativity, and an insatiable curiosity about science and life. And so my story begins.

A Kindergarten art teacher told me, "Blonde Dutch Girl, you're so good at painting and drawing. You're a great artist!" So I did the logical thing. I studied pre-Vet Biology in college. And then, my brain needed creativity to balance out the facts, figures, and details of Biochemistry, Physics, and Organic. So I started taking art classes and an art professor said, "Blonde Dutch Girl, have you ever considered being an artist? You're great!" But, since I always thought I would be a veterinarian, I got into vet school...seven times! But each acceptance letter made my stomach drop. But I really wanted to work with children, global health, photography, and design.

So I finished my Masters in Public Health, told the vet schools, "No, thank you!" and now work as a freelance photographer, designer, marketer, and public health aficionado, traveling around the world on medical missions, meeting beautiful children all around the globe, and serving and loving God's people locally. I'm passionate about the local Church, the sanctity of human life, urban development, and community outreach, and love to serve in ministry by engaging culture and loving people. Ahh, I feel so blessed to do what I love doing and bring photos of the world to your home.

Welcome to my world!

Shipping
When sending the caramel chocolate chip brownies to the lower 48 states, I send them two-day priority mail with the United States Postal Service.

I send vintage books via Media Mail with the USPS.

Photographs are sent directly to you from the printer or "drop shipped" from the photograph or canvas printer. They may send via USPS, FedEx, or UPS. I will send you a shipping/tracking notification as soon as I receive it from them so you can keep tabs on your order!
Refunds and Exchanges
DAMAGED ITEM OR POOR QUALITY: If an item arrives damaged or poor quality, please contact me immediately and email a photo of the item to me. I will speak to the photo or canvas printer and speak with them about replacing the item for you.

UPGRADE/EXCHANGE: All of my photos are printed on-demand meaning that I do not have a warehouse of photographic prints waiting to be sold. So that means that if you are hoping to get a different size print, you will need to purchase an additional photo. I will waive the shipping fee for an additional print being sent to you. To do so, I will need to set up a one-time listing FOR THE EXTRA PRINT ONLY in your name to give you a credit on the shipping.

NOT ARRIVED: If a package has not arrived, please let me know so I can make sure to contact the photo printer or remedy the missing item.
Additional policies and FAQs
CUSTOM ORDERS: I would be happy to explore ideas for your decorating ideas. I have listed 10+ options for photo print sizes, but there are many more options to be had. Canvases. Panoramic. Square. Triptych. I'd love to hear your ideas or wishes and see what options I can come up with at an affordable price for you! Just send me an email or custom order request and we can start a conversation. Your custom ideas are just as fun for me and I'm honored that these photos inspired creativity in you!
