About

Small ponds, like small beginnings, are often teeming with life.

A life-long maker and curious spirit, Haley Montgomery was raised in the small-town, rural South with weekends spent on her grandparents’ farm, exploring pastures and fencerows, storytelling under the pecan tree, and experiencing the vibrance of ordinary moments. Small ponds, like small beginnings, are often teeming with life. Lovingly called “Busy Bee,” the every-changing landscape of the farm and the life it embodies continues to color Haley’s creative pursuits. Whether working in watercolor and acrylic paint, hand-carved linoleum or paper craft, she seeks to share the values of place, home, faith, togetherness, exploration, memory, and ingenuity found in days at Busy Bee.

Haley’s creative pursuits reflect a desire to experience a quiet, authentic and conscious life — to be a good steward of time and blessings, and to infuse daily life with beauty, creativity, and celebration. Real conversations, giggles, and quiet moments. Tall grasses, wide skies, and wildflowers. Favorite stories, good memories, and family traditions. Life in the rural South where past and present entwine. Through creative expression, Haley seeks to savor more completely the blessing of ordinary days soaked up fully, and to share that blessing with others.

Haley is a life-long Mississippian and a graduate of Mississippi State University. In addition to work as a full-time artist, she also serves as Mommy and chief ring-leader to a vibrant three-ring circus. Haley and her three children live in Starkville, Mississippi, and continue to enjoy sojourns to the family farm in rural Noxubee County.

Welcome to the Small Pond Graphics print shop! I hope you're able to find a prince or two! I'm a doodler and a lover of letters and words and experimentation. Most of my artwork and designs come out of a sketch journaling process. If I stumble upon something I like in my doodles, I try to translate it into a sentiment that can be shared -- a gift tag, a card, or a wee poster.

Small Pond Graphics print shop offerings flow from my own creative pursuits, whether as original artwork or illustrations, art prints or hand-cut block-printed items. My favorite part of the block-printing medium is that each piece is unique and somewhat of a surprise. Each material -- from surface to ink to paper to enclosure -- has its own qualities. Although I try to make each set of designs as consistent as possible, variations are bound to occur. To me, those small variations are part of the lure of hand-crafted items.

Whether you are purchasing a printed treasure for yourself or as part of a special message to someone you love, I hope you'll see the unique brush strokes and perhaps minor imperfections as my personal hand-crafted addition to your correspondence.
