About


After spending several years as an art director/graphic designer in Philadelphia, San Francisco and Chicago, my life took an about-face. I moved to a Wisconsin farm, set up shop in a little milk house and married my farmer guy. Or is it the other way round? Married, then milk house. Anyway, here I am, getting messy in the milk house with my charcoal, running around after our barn cats, having staring contests with holsteins, sweeping hay mows, wondering why my basil won’t grow but the mint will flourish in a pile of rocks, and finding other things that bewilder me. So grab some cheese and crackers, sit back, graze, enjoy, and thank you for visiting!

  1. As the world turns! knowing you this should be interesting. I like what I see so far. by the way spiders hide and sleep in the winter time. Anyway, go for “gold”. Your dad

  2. I enjoyed reading, and seeing all of the photos, on your blog. I found it very interesting. I went from being a city girl (Sheboygan…yes, I know your mom) who after having 3 children (baby 3 months old) we bought an old, old farm house with no running water…no running water means no inside toilet. And that is why your Milk House Studio brings back memories. Keep up the good and interesting work.

  3. Thank you so much for writing this blog! One of my closest friends sent it to me this morning and I’m so grateful. You are a wonderful writer who made me smile on a dingy, gray day in NYC. My roots are on a dirt road in Central New York, a place I intend to return to soon….when I find my farm, farmer and dog. Until then, I will live vicariously through you and enjoy every minute. Stay warm & enjoy!

    • Your welcome! And it’s great to hear from you…I grew up in the Hudson Valley region so naturally I love New York. So yes, find yourself a farm, farmer and dog and get yourself back up there! I’m glad I could make you smile on a gray day in the city…you stay warm as well!

  4. Hey Micka! I saw your parents this weekend while I was visiting my mom. They look great! Hope all is well with you!
