About The Artful Chocolatier:
The Artful Chocolatier combines the artistic skills of portrait and wildlife painter, Donna Goeddaeus, with the gourmet, professional chocolatier experience of Wendy Bath. The two, northwoods Wisconsin women began their creative partnership in 2007 with a phone call. Donna called to ask if Wendy would render Donna's horse and wildlife drawings in the medium of chocolate. Intrigued by the possibilities of creating fine art in fine chocolate, the women began collaborating. Their first brand was Equus Fine Chocolates. The dark and white chocolate horse heads and tack boxes soon filled an empty niche in the equestrian market. Next the women created their Wildlife Chocolate Collection, followed by their third brand, Silver, which taps the market for elegant, special-occasion gifts. The Artful Chocolatier's gourmet candy has become so popular that now the company has enlarged its staff in order to supply the growing demand. By joining's artisan group, the Artful Chocolatier reaches further into a national market.
