DescriptionBased on an old wives' tale. Crush your eggshells when you are done with them, or witches will make boats of them and terrorize sailors:'Oh, never leave your eggshells unbroken in the cup,Think of us poor sailor-men and always smash them up,For witches come and find them and sail away to sea,And make a lot of misery for mariners like me.'
BreeAnn Veenstra, Grand Rapids, MI Member Since February 2009 Artist Statement BreeAnn Veenstra wants to make children dream and adults believe.
She grew up surrounded by the beautiful country of northern Michigan's lower peninsula. Wildlife and art were frequent companions both through her childhood activities and her father's own art business, E-Scape Art Glass (www.eaglass.com). She is continuously inspired by the natural world and its wildlife as well as the unending possibilities of combining these with the surreal and fantastical. Consequently, BreeAnn thoroughly enjoys including mythical or fantastical elements in her works when she can.
In addition to illustration, BreeAnn also enjoys writing, web design, and printmaking. She desperately wants to swim with dolphins and loves flying, even if it is only in her dreams.
