About The Artist

BreeAnn Veenstra is a nature-inspired illustrator and founder of Wildship Studio based in Grand Rapids, MI. BreeAnn designs products including greeting cards, art prints and enamel pins, by starting with hand painted original illustrations. These are drawn and painted in gouache, watercolor, and pen & ink, often using one of her favorite tools: a traditional dip/nib pen passed down from her grandfather.

"(The pen) has a habit of making the most beautiful marks, and reminds me that there is often as much grace in imperfections, if not at times more so."

Her work is fueled by an appreciation for adventure and sense of responsibility for nature. Paper products are printed by BreeAnn on FSCĀ® certified and Rainforest Alliance Certifiedā„¢ papers, and envelopes contain 30% post-consumer waste.
