Katherine Dunn is an artist and writer of Apifera Farm, a magical place where art and animals collide. There donkeys host pie parties, old goats commune with pigs and sheep... and a puppet is learning Italian.

Katherine began her art career in Minneapolis where she illustrated for clients such as Target, Neiman Marcus, Hallmark, Gourmet, and Wall St. Journal. Her work has received awards from Communication Arts, Print, American Illustration and Society of Illustrators. But writing has always been a passion too and when she moved to her farm in 2004 in rural Oregon, she was surrounded by new animal characters with stories popping up all around her. Her little donkey Pino is a favorite muse and stars in several of her illustrated pieces. He a

I have been working on the upcoming book about the story of White Dog, the creature that mysteriously appeared in our field one day...the same large livestock guardian breed [Maremma] as our Marcella who at the time was about 8 months old as I recall.

“I am here, come closer,” the old donkey said with her eyes. “I will mother you.”
Katherine Dunn, Misfits of Love: Healing Conversations in the Barnyard

“Just as a snowflake
went on to feed a puddle that filled a stream and then the river, the
pumpkin patch is a gathering of molecules from my old goats, chickens,
and cats, feeding the underworld of dirt creatures. And somewhere, my
father’s ashes mingle with birds, air, and sea.”
Katherine Dunn, Misfits of Love: Healing Conversations in the Barnyard

“It seems to me that organized creeds are collections of words around a wish. I feel no need for such. I know that nothing is destructible; things merely change forms. When the consciousness we know as life ceases, I know that I shall still be part and parcel of the world."

-Zora Neale Hurston”
