About The Folkhaus

I am Mary; creative person, mama to three, homemaker, homeschooler, cheerleader of independent artists, lover of music, film, & literature. I am inspired by the whimsy & saturated color of childhood, the freedom of the folky scene, the eclectic clash of punk culture, & the everlasting magic of storytelling.

Folkhaus Studios is my haven where I am free to explore & grow in the world of the arts (visual, musical, writing, theatrical, fiber, culinary...), & Scribbles in Stitches is my way of giving back to the magic of childhood that I cherish so much. 

I launched my Scribbles in Stitches Etsy store (now called the Folkhaus Shoppe) in late 2016/early 2017 for folk punk dolls & various arts & fiber arts; this helped me in contributing to my family's finances as a SAHM, for which I am eternally grateful! I found a welcoming community in the art doll world, & with some of the amazing people I met through it, have also fed positive creativity back to the community on Instagram at @dollmakingmagic, where we shared tips & tricks about our art & businesses.

Folkhaus Studios is the "umbrella" for the various other visual arts I am interested in, including illustration & photography. It sprung from the name we gave our homeschool, "Folkhaus School", & the illustrations I began making for our lessons (which I now share digital files of those illustrations along with the books, projects, & field trips we used to make up each unit!). I have a blog that follows our Folkhaus endeavors in both spheres since they are so closely connected (thefolkhaus.com). 

I am only able to chase my arts passion so completely through the generosity of people like YOU, who back me both financially as patrons here &/or customers on my Etsy (thefolkhausshoppe.etsy.com) or in person at local events, & with your enthusiasm for & sharing of my art on Facebook & Instagram (now consolidated in @thefolkhaus; previous specialized accounts @scribblesinstitches & @folkhausstudios remain as archives). Your investments in my art are just as much investments in the futures & education of my kiddos, & that means more than I can even express. THANK YOU for everything.
