Maker Biography

made for the wild at heart Wildship Studio is a Grand Rapids, Michigan-based studio that creates illustrated goods for the wild at heart. Each product is designed to embrace your inner wild while bringing you closer to the outer wild, all the while being as eco-friendly as possible. We’re all about finding the kinship and unbridled beauty between ourselves, flowers, and beast. That is what we call Wildship. Founded by BreeAnn Veenstra in 2013. OUR BEGINNING Armed with a degree in illustration and a little black wolf logo, I started Wildship Studio as a creative outlet in 2013. I soon branched out into illustrating all types of paper goods and products and debuted our first modest but mighty line for retail and wholesale in 2015. The collection of illustrated goods has been growing like wildflowers ever since! OUR PROCESS Our products feature my hand-drawn and painted illustrations, originally created in gouache, ink, and watercolor. Among my favorite tools is a traditional dip ink pen handed down to me by my grandfather and whose RV initials are still visible on its cork grip. OUR MATERIALS The earth is a big deal to us, which is why I source environmentally friendly and sustainable materials whenever possible. All of our paper products are printed locally on professional presses (by yours truly) using FSC® certified or Rainforest Alliance Certified™ papers and our envelopes contain 30% post-consumer waste, Our shipping materials are made of recycled content and are also recyclable after use.
