In 2021 I interpreted 54 masterpieces in my children’s book style (you can find them all here)—and these mousterful mice have convinced me to paint 12 more. You’ll find each new MousterWork on this blog, Instagram, and Facebook on the last Monday of each month. Don’t forget to look for two mice in each painting!

About Me

When I was little, my mom and I often looked through a book full of beautiful Masterpieces. I asked lots of questions about these people painted in time: How were we the same? How were we different? If you are also a fan of masterpieces, children’s book art, and searching for mice, I invite you to follow along!
