Berta Hummel

Who was this woman with a talent to make anyone smile?

Although she only lived for a short time, her life’s work has brought happiness to many families allowing us to reflect upon our own childhood memories and those of our children.

Her Artwork

The artwork above, as an example, has been transformed into post cards, figurines and much more. With more than 600 sketches and drawings, she was quite prolific with her talent in catching the wonder each child possess.

This site is in its infancy so bear with me as I introduce more material to honor this woman who means so much to so many. Explore the links to discover a multitude of beautiful examples you can affordably own.
