About

Our History

DeerFriend started when I (Shannon), artist and shop owner, wanted a way to make and share art with the world. As far as I can remember, I have always had a pencil in hand ready to create. Even through mathematics and science classes in school, I sat doodling to get through the academic classes. I love to create, whether it be a knit garment, a ceramic vessel, or an illustration. I believe that all artists have an obligation to share their craft with the rest of the world. Without art and creatives, life would be so bland!

The name DeerFriend comes from my love of animals. I love dogs, cats, otters, coyotes, wolves, safari animals, squirrels...Living in the Midwest of the United States, one animal that I often cross paths with is the white tailed deer. I often go bike riding or running through the forests just to see if I can catch a glimpse of one. I admire their shyness and connect to their awkwardness as they always wobble away quickly with their knobby legs. I am also a pun-enthusiast and think that everyone who creates should view the people who admire and purchase their art as friends; people who connect with what you pour your heart and soul into every day. So my deer friends, I look forward to sharing my creations with you and helping to make the world a more interesting place to exist within.
