‘Fairy Doors’ artwork on display at University Hospital

August 9, 2019  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources
One of Jonathan’s Wright pieces, on display at Michigan Medicine.

Two U-M alums, Jonathan B. Wright, a life-long Ann Arborite, and his wife Kathleen Wright, have been finding evidence of fairies in their home since 1993.

In 2005, fairy doors began to appear in downtown Ann Arbor and Jonathan began documenting them in earnest as a certified fairyologist.

He studied graphic design, architecture and illustration, while Kathleen is a teacher of young children, a writer and professional storyteller. Together they discover the stories behind the fairy doors.

Though Jonathan’s multi-media works require no shortage of labor, he said, “imagination is the key to the fairy doors.”
