On a wing

Or a wave

A plummeting bird


Sinking ship-

that’s saved

Flying, not falling

A song sung

from Future’s daughter

Floating on Air

Buoyed by Sea

On a wing


On a wave

It’s who we dare

For over five years Inga Eissmann Buccella has been creating custom pet renderings and illustrations of pets and owners for her Etsy shop. She has also written and illustrated three children’s books and has a fourth on the way!

She writes poetry and draws daily. Last year Inga began writing her first novel and is working on another. Both are historical fiction, involving parallel timelines that may or may not intertwine. Both are illustrated and feature poetry too.
