Ellen was born in Bennington, Vermont in 1959.  As a child,
she spent much of her spare time drawing.  She also kept a
variety of pets throughout her childhood, which included a
pig named Pipsqueak (who was raised on a bottle) a quail,
some lizards and, of course, mice.  When Ellen was introduced
to her first mouse, it was love at first sight, and the
beginning of a lifelong interest, which would eventually
lead to the creation of House-Mouse Designs®.

In college and looking for money for a trip to Europe in 1980,
Ellen followed the advice of her boyfriend, Barry Percy, and
created several pen-and-ink drawings of her pet mouse, Tiny,
to sell at a craft show.  Twenty-six years later, their
business is making a darned good living for them.
