about the owner
Hi, I'm Ellen Mrazek, owner & designer of Best Friends Studios. It's a little known fact that I spent several years as a child absolutely terrified of dogs. Crazy, huh? Luckily, I got over that fear and today cannot imagine a life without a dog (or dogs) at my side. From the beginning, Best Friends Studios has given me the opportunity to mesh two passions: dogs and graphic design. I'm a huge believer of writing personal notes on real paper and get a kick out designing stationery featuring my customers' dogs.

We live in Webster Groves, Missouri, a sleepy, old-fashioned suburb of St. Louis, where my husband runs his pet-related business, Fetch! Pet Care. I keep busy with my two teenagers and a household of pets, which includes a yellow lab named Jasmine, and Kit Kat, a wily tomcat who occasionally brings us live gifts from the garden. But, without a doubt, the head of our household is Scamp, a spunky Jack Russell/Poodle mix rescued from one of Missouri's awful puppy mills. When I'm working in my studio, both Scamp and Jasmine can usually be found lounging at my feet. What can be better than working with your best friends?

ATTENTION DOG LOVERS: For personal reasons, I am putting Best Friends Studios on hiatus this summer. Please check back with us in the fall. Thank you for your interest in our dog silhouette stationery! Best, Ellen Mrazek
