"You will find us on the beautiful prairie of the Midwest in the heart of central Illinois. Our home and studio is nestled within eleven acres of majestic oaks, hickories and pines with a small four-acre alfalfa field for the wildlife. Each day the we find inspiration just looking out the windows at red fox, coyote, whitetail deer, squirrel, geese, and all the beautiful birds that make homes in the trees surrounding our home and studio.
During the harsh snowy Midwest winters you will find our family curled up by the wood-burning fireplace writing and illustrating to our hearts content. The smell of the fire permeates the air and gives a warm and comfy feel to the studios. We also enjoy sipping on a mug of hot chocolate and snacking on cookies while discussing our works in progress. Life here is much like what you would fine in a Norman Rockwell illustration for The Saturday Evening Post because it is such a perfect reflection of small-town America.
We are 'real life' SNOW PEOPLE whose history originated in Germany. Before immigrating to the U.S. over 100 years ago, it was spelled 'Schneeman', which is the German word for snowman. The family name was Americanized to the English spelling as many names were in those early days of our nation. The Snowman’s have lived in the Midwest since the 1800’s and there are more than four generations of artisans in the family tree. Currently, there are three generations of Snowman’s working in the arts within Canton, IL. Our family is trained in both old-world methods and the newest technology, giving us a wide range of skill and expertise to call upon."
