About Us

Susan Gainen lives on a path & flyway frequented by whimsical creatures who stop by to sit for portraits, tell their stories, and eat my snacks. Find her work at http://www.susangainenartist.com/, https://www.etsy.com/shop/SusanGainen, The Dow Gallery, and at The Art Shoppe at Midtown Global Market.

How We Got Started

I love making and sharing art, exploring new themes and new materials, and writing stories that enchant readers.

The Backyard Roosters of Saint Paul: A book

This is a collection of portraits and stories about the Backyard Roosters of Saint Paul. Each came to my Saint Paul studio to sit for his portrait, to tell his story, and to eat my snacks. Did you know that there is no collective noun for "rooster?" $9.00 plus $4 shipping
