Chelsea and I had the pleasure of meeting Jasmine Wisz back in June. She came into Le Bon Macaron to see if we needed custom art by a local artist. We said no, but soon thought better of it! The next day we were sipping lattes and discussing plans for six custom watercolor canvases depicting Parisian scenes. From there the rest is history! We are grateful to have met Jasmine, for her stunning art, incredible talent and  growing friendship.

All six of our custom canvases by Jasmine are available to purchase in both our East Lansing and Grand Rapids locations. Contact us for details.

Jasmine’s NYC custom canvases are available for purchase from her directly. It’s a collection of three paintings and they are stunning! They were on display at the shoppe during NYC’s fashion week this year.


I’m happy to share with you several pieces of art Jasmine has made for our business and family.

For Christmas Jasmine made Chelsea a painting of her first baby, her rescue cat Daisy. She is perfect!


After seeing Daisy I knew we needed more. Next was Rosie, our parent’s Welsh Terrier. Again, perfection.

Drew and I share a birthday and come up with creative gifts every year for our birthday. This year, you guessed it, paintings of our dogs, Annie the Airedale and Bentley the Wire Fox Terrier. I nearly cried when I saw them! Jasmine captured Annie’s dopey eyes and Bentley’s playful expression.

Annie and Bentley by Jasmine

Well, I did not know my Mom had that same idea! So in addition to our Annie and Bentley portraits we received custom portraits of Charlotte and Drew and me on our wedding day. Again, absolute perfection!

    I found your beautiful website via Grand Rapids Chair Company website. I love that your bakery uses local companies and artists. These watercolors are beautiful and I like how you bring out the subtle watercolors with matching flowers. It really makes the watercolors pop! I am a Michigander and I can’t wait to visit your precious little bakery next time we are in Grand Rapids.

    Last evening, my husband and I ventured into Le Bon Macaron, after visiting a nearby establishment. In the past, our timing was never quite right, and we always “just missed,” with you being closed. All I can say is WOW! I seriously could have consumed a dozen of the vanilla bean macarons. Simply a slice of heaven. My husband devoured his chocolate raspberry cream puffs. The macchiato was the best we have ever tasted. The shoppe’s atmosphere indeed makes you feel as though you’re in France. We haven’t enjoyed such a lovely and perfect ending to our day in quite some time. I love your blog; great recipes, tidbits, and gorgeous photography. Thank you for choosing Grand Rapids! We are so very lucky to have Le Bon Macaron in our community.
