Melissa Daams Art/Whimsy Winkel

Whimsy Winkel is the perfect name for our shop because we love cute, happy, playful designs and we are dreamers. We also really like the alliteration Whimsy Winkel. What is a “winkel” you may ask? Well, it’s Dutch for shop or store. Melissa and her girls lived in the Netherlands and half the family is Dutch. Melissa is American, born and raised in St George, Utah. We use our experiences as influences in our art to create fun playful designs that are unique and eclectic that bring the buyer a sense of nostalgia, imagination, and joy.

Melissa is the mom and has a deep love for dolls, toys and play. She hopes that spending as much time as possible in this mind set will keep her forever young. Kailea is her oldest daughter and has a love for painting, drawing, film and photography. Some of Kailea’s makes include trinket boxes, doll redesign, and painting. Crow is the second oldest and has a deep love for nature, mushrooms, gardening, and tinkering. Crow makes earrings, paints peg dolls, and enjoys working with felt and clay.
