I studied at the University of Toledo as an art major until, as so often is the case, life intervened. My art then became the art of parenting as I raised five sons with my loving husband.

Nothing tickles me more than to watch someone discover my art for the first time and to see the broad smile that spreads across their face. My art is about the joy of creating and the joy it brings to my collectors. I consider myself a contemporary impressionist creating bold, colorful renditions of critters, flowers and landscapes in a few happy strokes. Quirky, loose lines, together with carefree pen squiggles are my trademark. Einer Arts represents me, Terri Einer, an Oshkosh, WI artist. I have received numerous awards for my art and am also a published Picture Book Illustrator. She has an end cap at The Rustic Burrow.
I founded Flora&Fauna in 2018. Formerly known as Wilhelm Crafts, I started out my part-time artistry painting custom work for family and friends.

Garden Produce Captured in Thyme
I grew up in the fox valley area and upper Michigan and raised a family on a quarter acre garden. This started an interest and developed my passion of fresh-grown organic goods. During the care of my aging parents, I happened upon a great view harvesting red potatoes which was my father’s favorite food. Since then, taking photos of my garden produce, herbs and spring blossoms just seem to follow. I entered the Bergstrom Mahler Art Gallery, art in the park Festival and received "award of recognition", since no one else had anything like my photos. People loved it and I hope you will too! She has an end-cap at The Rustic Burrow.

I work in specialty woodworking retail; crafting items of value in my spare time. I log & mill my own wood—except for my exotic hardwood pens. That means the crafted item you are purchasing was literally a tree in northern Wisconsin, and from tree felling, to when you purchase your item, the only person to touch that item has been me. I pride my work in this, as I am the only truly “organic wood maker” I’m aware of. With my products, you get the real deal—you're not paying for the finished product, you’re purchasing wood with a real story—you're purchasing “real.” He has an 8’ x 8’ booth at The Rustic Burrow.
