Everyone deserves to have more to smile about in their life.
And mice are experts at creating smiles!
Please meet the artist: Anna from Amsterdam!
Anna is the artist behind these joyful handmade felt mice. Her granny was a mouse maker and just like her she is on a mission to let more joy into our existence . She wants her creations to speak to our soul, light up and inspire us with pure delight because she believes that things that make us happy are what make our life so unique. That’s why Anna dedicates hours of loving attention into the tiniest details to bring these beautifully intricate, utterly adorable felt mice to life, so they can light up our days.
As a child Anna struggled with reading and writing. After years of being treated as educationally sub-normal by her teachers she was finally diagnosed with dyslexia, a condition that meant her brain simply followed unexpected ways of learning and gave her a huge gift: like blindness resulted in an extraordinary hearing she developed an intense passion and talent for creativity that became her source of joy, her sanctuary from the dark side of life. Anna began to join several craft workshops and learned about drawing, painting, ceramics, sewing and all sort of textiles. As she built up confidence with technique soon she added photography, graphic design and sculpture to her skills trying out for new experiences and working on different materials.
The House of Mouse is now the soft, cuddly, nice, tiny, whimsical, magnificent and cute part of her life besides her hubby and her precious toddler!
