NEW! Check out my interview with Karen Stiller on the Faith Today podcast, where I talk about how all of us have the potential to be creative because we’ve been made in God’s image. All we need is some curiosity, courage, and a child-like spirit! Click here to listen. 


Hi, I'm Ann-Margret! My work brings together my passion for creativity (whimsy) and my commitment to truth (wisdom). . . my formula for seriously joyful living!

I’ve been writing professionally for over 25 years and illustrating colouring books since 2015. I am currently in the process of developing my art business, Buttercup Design Studio, and working on improving my lettering and illustration skills. On a volunteer basis, I serve as Executive Editor of the Christian Freelance Writers Network blog and also as an advisor on the board of the Evangelical Press Association.

“I have been utilizing Ann-Margret’s skills for a decade. She is one of my most dependable, versatile freelancers. Ann-Margret is exceptionally talented in both her writing and her artwork, and I can always trust her to do everything with excellence!”

SUSAN TJADEN, Senior Editor, Ink & Willow | WaterBrook & Multnomah

Ann-Margret’s craft is clear and succinct. She has stewarded her skill with care over two decades, sharing words in a wide range of places showcasing her creativity and flexibility as an artist. It’s icing on the cake that she’s also a delight to know in person!


I really love Ann-Margret’s drawings. Restore My Soul has beautiful illustrations and meaningful devotions.  I have bought all of her books and love them all.
