When Mary Badenhop founded Pipsqueak Productions in 1986 it was the realization of her dreams. At age 5 she knew the roads she wanted to pursue: art, travel and her own business. Now present day... Mary leads a team of employees striving to make Pipsqueak Productions the "Best of Breed".
Mary has created over 550 designs featuring more than 90 breeds of dogs, cats, ferrets, fish, birds and farm animals. Her love of travel is seen throughout her work and in the backgrounds that she portrays. Of course nothing pleases Mary more than to know the story behind a pet featured in a photograph she is drawing from. Many of her designs are based on life events and photos sent in by people who have pets rescued or adopted.
In regards to fundraising, Pipsqueak Productions gives generously. Her lovingly rendered designs are used to raise awareness and to generate funds to help thousands of homeless and abused animals.
Mary's most recent projects have included commissioned wall art for pet boutiques, corporate lobbies, grooming shops, and private homes. Licensing is also a part of her new ventures and can be seen on products ranging from trays and trivets to music boxes... be on the lookout for a new line of ceramic figurines, ornaments, plaques and water globes.
