Mates of the Art

Jacqueline Schmidt assembles couples from land, sea, and sky in her print that proves that true love can be found anywhere, anytime, but only between a few very special species. We know wolves run in packs, but in fact, these paired-up pooches prove that the phrase "lone wolf" is a total misnomer. Angelfish respect the sanctity of their one-and-only relationship, Gibbon monkeys stay together for the swing of it, and hawks, swans, cranes, and pigeons are all proven lovebirds. Even termites show that the couple that shares an appetite for good things in life is destined for a fruitful relationship. This unconventional take on amore makes for an ideal gift for the nature lover or an affianced, newlywed, or just wildly romantic couple. Made in Michigan out of 100% recycled newsprint paper.

Professional illustrator and designer Jacqueline Schmidt is always ready to put pen to paper. “With so many creative thoughts rolling around in my mind, I have learned to be able to capture and document them as soon as they come in,” she says. Her sense of the moment and knack for blending the urban and natural worlds have led to her work being displayed everywhere from galleries to newspapers and magazines to the stationery company she founded in 2008. But as much as her innate imagination inspires her, motherhood has moved her more. “Having kids has definitely expanded my creative self,” she says. “It’s beautiful. I am grateful to them for opening my heart and mind even further.”

Bought a gift. My wife loved it!

By 

from Albuquerque

Verified Buyer

Comments about UncommonGoods Mates For Life:

Gave it to my wife as an anniversary present. She's a zookeeper and loved the sentimentality mixed with science of the picture. The frame doesn't seem to be the highest quality material but it is mounted well. Will likely be purchasing other prints from this vendor.

    What to get a couple who has everything?

    By 

    from Chatsworth, CA

    Comments about UncommonGoods Mates For Life:

    Purchased for sister's 30th wedding anniversary. The couple was really impressed with the quality of the print and the thoughtfulness. I purchased my own inexpensive frame for presentation in case they want to have it professionally framed at some point.

    My fiancé and I just got married last week and gave this to my parents as part of their gift! It was absolutely beautiful and the frame it comes in is much much nicer than I anticipated. My parents loved it and it turned out to be the perfect gift.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Mates For Life:

    I bought this for my husband for our 25th wedding anniversary. When I received it I thought I should have let them frame it because of the size, but I went to Michael's and found a cottage style 18 x 24 frame and matting and it looks beautiful!

              I wanted this as much as I wanted to give it to my husband, so it worked perfectly. We are both very happy with the final product. Bought just the print, was easily put into a mat & frame and looks perfect!
