Announcement   {Buying multiple items: contact me to ensure s/h is adjusted. I do this to make sure I am not underpaid for shipping-since many items must be shipped separately} Apifera Farm is a magical place, a real working farm, where artist Katherine Dunn communes with fields and creatures. There she paints, writes, and makes raggedy messes, along with being mother to a working flock of sheep and a field of lavender. Many of the items here are stuffed with the farm's own lavender bud. Her work is collected internationally and her art is showcased on Sundance. She writes a popular blog and has written/illustrated three books with more on the way.

The farm is also home to old and special needs goats, donkeys, ducks and more- known as The Misfits. http://apiferafarm.blogspot.com/p/blog-page_14.html

About

Woman merging with animal and nature at Apifera Farm

Katherine is painter and writer, but also loves to sew and create hand made creatures of cloth and fiber. Her art merges her own essence with those of the barn animals that surround her-as well as small rodents. She believes her father comes to her as a mouse.

Katherine began her art career in Minneapolis where she illustrated for clients such as Target, Neiman Marcus, Hallmark, Gourmet, and Wall St. Journal. Her work has received awards from Communication Arts, Print, American Illustration and Society of Illustrators. But writing has always been a passion too and when she moved to her farm in 2004 in rural Oregon, she was surrounded by new animal characters with stories popping up all around her. There her little donkey Pino became a favorite muse and stars in several of her illustrated pieces. He also hosted a giant Pino Pie Party every year where funds were raised for one of Katherine's big passions- helping senior and needy barn animals [and sharing her homemade pie.

In 2016, the couple made a bold decision–to leave their beloved farm in Oregon, and relocate the animals and farm to mid coast Maine. After a six da journey, all animals and humans arrived safely and are recreating Apifera. A small flock of fiber sheep will provide wool for Katherine's art [and be for sale also after spring 2017].

She has written two illustrated memoirs, available in her shop. Her ever popular blog highlights her conversations with chickens and the loving cast of characters in her barnyard. Her first book, "Creative Illustration Workshop" [2010] was named third on the Top Ten Art Books by the US Amazon editors. Her paintings are showcased on Sundance.
