She has an Etsy store where you can find prints, mini-prints, bookmarks, cards, and notebooks featuring her artwork. Check it out by clicking here.
An Interview with Jackie Bee
What is your favourite mouse drawing you have done? My favourite has to be a drawing I did of the entire choir back when I was in high school. It was a work-in-progress the whole year, done on the back of my music envelope, and each person in our choir was represented by a mouse.
How did you come up with the idea for "Life of Mouse?" The mice started as doodles when I was in school, and then I started making a few cards, bookmarks and that kind of thing for gifts. Pretty soon, people were telling me that I should turn it into a business. It took me more than 20 years since life got in the way, but I've finally started "Life of Mouse."
Does Life of Mouse only include your mouse drawings? I also include my pencil sketches under Life of Mouse, although I use my real name for those instead of my pen name. I do pencil sketches of animals and will do commissions.
What else do you do when you aren't drawing? I work a full-time day job as a barefoot hoof trimmer, so that keeps me busy. I also run Riding Rain Ranch, a horse ranch (with donkeys and goats as well). I write adult and children's books as well as articles and am a mother.
What is your favourite animal? It's hard to say! They all have such unique aspects that I love. I am really into horses and donkeys, but I also love my cats, dogs, bunnies and goats.
What would people be surprised to know about you? I'm actually terrified of mice and birds.
