Creating new art using ephemera or restoring Antique artwork with my digital paintbox is fun. Here I created a chandelier book plate for the inside of books using my original design.

A bit of Jane Austen from a 1917 MANSFIELD PARK

And a bit of Alice in Wonderland

Frances Burnett's MY ROBIN

I have just finally visited your blog. My life has been so busy, the past couple of months, that I am just now getting to it. I received one of your beautiful Alice tags in my book. Yours was my favorite one. I love your blog, and I think we have much in common. Please visit my blog called It is all about paper crafts card making and scrapbooking. I have made some more tags and am offering them to 4 people who would love to add to their books. come say hi!

About Me

My photo
I was raised in Long Island, New York and in my early twenties, moved to Manhattan and worked there for many years in the computer field. I have been an artist as long as I can remember. I started painting in 1983 while living in Princeton, New Jersey. I found lots of inspiration when we moved to Hong Kong for my husband's work. Five years later, we moved to Toronto. We returned to New England in 2002 and I have enjoyed all the creative and inspiring resources that surround me. The Lord has blessed my life with a wonderful family and many gifts.
