Love illustrated...

NEWS!: The latest Children's Picture Book that I have illustrated is called "Magdalena's Picnic" by Patricia Aguilar Morrissey. It is a story that explores a young child’s imagination as it takes her to a faraway place—the Amazon jungle—without leaving her backyard. The main character in the book, the one fearlessly leading the group ahead, is a girl named Magdalena. She is clearly a role model for young adventurers as she dodges dangers, makes bold choices, and finally, leads her group to its destination.

My passion and joy is Illustration – from creating whimsical art for children’s picture books, to making art that (hopefully) connects on a deeper level.

I specialize in works on paper using rich textures, pattern and color — creating drama and interest through character, composition and humor. While watercolor, colored pencil and pen/ink are my preferred mediums, I also employ my digital tools (i.e. Photoshop) to further expand my palette and offer a greater range of creativity.

Thank you for visiting my shop! Please feel free to contact me anytime. I love what I do and would be overjoyed to answer your questions or discuss professional freelance projects.

Shop policies

Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to carefully read my shop policies.

I am both honored and grateful that something I have created may become a part of your or your family and friends personal art collection. Every piece of art is made with great care and attention to detail in my clean "pet-friendly" (2 cats) home. NOTE: My studio is a designated PET-FREE zone.

I currently offer limited edition prints in two standard sizes. Shipping normally takes from between 2-7 business days. My greatest wish is for you to not only love your prints but feel that the whole process from start to finish was done in a friendly and professional manner.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Just send me an Etsy Convo or e-mail me directly at: gretchen.deahl [!at]

Returns and exchanges
I take all the time necessary to ensure that you receive a quality item, properly mailed and free of any defects (prior to mailing). However, please contact me immediately if you have a problem with your order and I'll do my very best to address the issue promptly.

I do not offer refunds or exchanges, unless there is a viable significant "defect" issue with your print. I can not be responsible for defects that occur during shipping. There are no refunds or exchanges for buyer's remorse. A purchase is a binding contract, so please shop carefully and responsibly.

If there is a defect issue (which I work hard to ensure does not occur prior to shipping) with your order, and we resolve to offer you a refund, you will not be refunded shipping costs.

Your refund will only go into effect AFTER you have shipped the item back to me, and it arrives in the same condition you received it in.
Payment is expected when you place your order.
