I’m Amanda Ann Larson—an artist, writer and organic farmer on beautiful Whidbey Island. Dream Raven Designs is my art studio where I create 1:12 scale miniatures and design nature-inspired jewelry and prayer beads.

And, yes, that’s a chicken in my studio. Jude is my little blue hen—a wee little bantam Cochin.
