OK I met the most wonderful artist when I went to the bear show in Kohler and I bought 2 of her wonderful mice, all her work was amazing, but I have a weakness for mice/hamster/rats/bunnies and I ended up buying more then I sold bear_whistle

The brown mouse sits at my computer  and I was telling a friend about them and when I went to show her, I realized the person who made it didn't put her name on the tag. She sells under the name J&J Studio , I don't think she has a website and I would love to talk to her again.

Any help would be great.

I am sorry, I have no idea either, but those little mice are just wonderful.  I would love to see more of her work if you track her down!!!

They are so good, the ears she uses like a suede and makes them feel so real. I don't know how she does the faces, the pictures just don't capture how great they are.

Jodi, if this show in Kohler that ABC used to do, maybe you could email Amber and/or Connie to see if they remember who the artist is.  Really cute mice!

If not the contact info for the show promoter is there.... perhaps they'll know who the artist is!

They are the most adorable mice I've ever seen!!! bear_wub

Johni Jacobsen Studio
She has designed a collection for Barton's Creek Bears, including a mouse.
Couldn't find a website for her though.

Johni Jacobsen lives in northern IL. I've been with her at one of the KDIGS shows in the early 00s.
Isabella Hoffman or Amy Thornton are from WI and probably know how to get hold of her. 
And The Nursery Window would be the place to start, or alternately, Connie & Amber.

Laura, Johnni was in your Home Showcase, wasn't she??

Hey Jodi How are you????? I think of you a lot lately, I wish I could make things easier for you, we miss your cheerful posts and wonderful spirit on here.  It's funny, I swore I was going to do the kohler show and come back with money and pay for the little family trip, welllllll you should never do a bear show if you started out as a collector before making bears bear_cry  on the slow moments you start wandering and buying bear_grin I met some really wonderful people too, so maybe I left poorer in pocket but richer in spirit :)

I've gotten to know your grandmother quite well since Jodi started this conversation 3 years ago.  I'm sure by now she's gotten in contact with her. Johnni is such a wonderful lady and so full of ideas and inspiration. I got together with her and another bear artist friend just last month for a day of bear making... I learned a lot from your grandmother!!! You are so lucky to have such a sweet and cmulti-talented grandmother!! Sounds like the creativity runs in the family too!

WELCOME to Johnni's Gr-Daughter!!
We absolutely LV the high sense of whimsey & delightful expressive faces that Johnni works into her faces through needle felting, plus adding many other art mediums into her work - just beautiful

Please introduce yourself to us; what type of art do you do?
