Conni Schaftenaar Elderberry Blossom Art

Zeeland, MI


Hi, my name is Conni Schaftenaar. I live on a farm in West Michigan and I love to take photos of our animals (horses, sheep, pigs, chickens, cats & dogs), and I have done a few paintings from those images. I also love to photograph flowers, trees and interesting plants, and sunrises, sunsets and beautiful cloud formations. I have done paintings of some of those as well. I have a shop on Etsy under the name of The Elderberry Blossom (one of my favorite wildflowers!), where I sell cards, calendars and other items I come up with.

I am a nearly life-long horseback rider and my favorite "day off" activity is to go trail riding. I love to crochet and create my own patterns. I'm trying to learn to knit, but haven't been very dedicated to that task!

I have been a marketing communications consultant for years, and I like to do layouts of brochures, newsletters, and other marketing materials. I also do marketing project management for a variety of marketing needs when a company needs someone to spearhead an occasional project that's outside the norm. My company is Marketing Projex, LLC.

I hope you like my images - thanks for looking!
