Honey in the Wild is a combination of all of the things that we are passionate about. We want to share with you our creative projects. We invite you to step inside our art studio and explore our world.
I wanted to share a little bit about me and things I love. I have a Swedish background on my dad’s side and I love Scandinavian design. I was a bit of a traveller in my late teens and spent some time in Russia and it still holds a place in my heart. I have five children (with my hubby) that we homeschool together, so I am drawn to children’s art and illustration and all things fun and whimsical. Everything I design must be family friendly and I prefer to design things that are bright and colorful. I love teapots even though I drink coffee. I love all things vintage and enjoy studying vintage tiles, wallpapers, and fabrics. I love sunflowers and use the name sunflowermommie as a nickname all over the web (and our homeschool blog is Sunflower Schoolhouse). I love honeybees and honeycomb, probably because of the connection to my name (Honey) and hence the name of our art studio – Honey in the Wild.
Jonah was known in high school for doing art rather than homework. He spent time looking at his sketchbook when he wasn’t drawing, acting, or filming. He used any opportunity growing up to make art and create comics, film skits with his brother, and tell funny stories. He has explored photography and found that the littlest things in the world are simply incredible, developing a love of macro-photography and all things nature (including landscapes). Jonah enjoys creating animations, using characters from his childhood, and he is learning to develop mobile apps to inspire his children to be creative and have fun with their world.
