This website is here because of a love for art,
interior design, architecture and books. I was an
Architect, sometimes with interior designers reporting to me, in
my first career, a graphic artist in my second and am now
retired. My husband was an Insurance Industry VP but then
an Art Dealer and Picture Framer in his second career.
We have both always loved reading and I, especially, have
enjoyed illustrated books; I have a nearly full collection of
Heritage Club Classic books (known for their book designs and
original illustrations). Although I have a wide taste in
art, my favorites have always been etchings and woodcuts,
usually in black and white, and usually old and original.
My least favorite art is what you can buy from big house art
This website combines my favorite things; etchings, wood
engravings, interior design and book illustrations. I am
looking forward to my future discoveries; and have already found
two new favorite artists while putting this site together; Nason
and Daglish, both working in wood engraving. Because I am
now retired, there’s lots of time to wander around garage sales
and antique malls.
I am also a computer programmer with
experience in designing web-sites. So there you are, Art,
Design, Programming, Books and Retirement.
Most of these
pieces are small and would look great in a kitchen, bathroom,
hallway or den. With a picture framer as a husband, I know
how fantastic one of these pieces can look when framed.
And with many art-loving friends, I know how nice it is
to have art in the house that have subjects of interest to them.
Please have as much fun looking at the art as I did finding
it and I hope your clients love them as much as I do.
