We are a mother & daughter team who create watercolor animal prints, cards, & custom pieces that represent innocence, light, love, & joy.

Our hope is that you experience delight

each time a Melane & Co. piece enters your life.


Imagine a time when you were a child & were able to look at children's books filled with sweet animals & nature scenes. Life was simple, & it still can be. Creating prints, cards, & custom pet portraits for you & your family to be surrounded with that simple inspiring innocence of a child is our mission. When I’m not perfecting my craft, you can expect to find me modeling, reading a book, or enjoying chocolate chip cookie dough.

the artist 


Because I raised one set of children, before starting the parenting

journey "over" with a new generation of two more daughters,

I see & respect the challenges mothers face as they seek to parent

 with strong values. That's one reason it is important to me to offer

light-filled, joyful items that inspire & delight families.

Another way I desire to impact hearts & homes is through my podcasts,

"Live With Eternal Perspective," and "Purposed Parent/Connected Child."

Both podcasts encourage & equip women 

to choose Christ over culture & parent with confidence & connection.

Since she started motherhood at 18 years old, Terri was once the youngest mother in any group. Now, she is now raising her second set of children with her husband of 43 years. Because her position has shifted to being the oldest mother, Terri recognizes and respects challenges mothers currently face as they seek to raise godly children in present-day culture.
