Industry Arts
Occupation Mixed Media Folk Artist and Illustrator of Children's Books
Location New England
Introduction New England mixed media folk artist for over 20 years and recent children's book illustrator and designer of children's couture with a whimsical appeal...i'm a busy girl who also loves to tinker with decorating in my spare time... a vintage kind of girl who loves all things a bit tattered and worn at the edges... inspired by nature, my home is my sanctuary... muffins baking, sipping cream with a dash of tea while admiring a lace laden table adorned with a tiny vase of violets...tea parties with my grandchild in a garden filled with fairies...hands covered in splotches of robin's egg blue and pale shades of pink paint as I bring a salvaged treasure back to life and give it a new home...a creative spirit whose great passion is in bringing my life to art with a childlike heart. This is a magical and sacred journey and it is meant to be glorious and sometimes sorrowful song to is my soul's radiate joy in all that I do and inspire others to follow their bliss...i am bertie and this is what makes me bloom.
