The many faces of Marie Antoinette

Marie Antoinette by Wendy Patterson

Since 2007 I have been developing my skills retouching vintage and antique images

for use in my card and art print designs.

It takes many hours of work to repaint the faces and make them look beautiful.

Some of the vintage images are quite stern with many women

having five o’clock shadows and dark unattractive faces.

I developed one particular image for my Marie Antoinette character

and this face is seen in much of my work with different costumes and hairstyles.

The lady you see above.

I recently became aware that this face has been taken and used by another person,

it is not unusual for image theft on the internet.

It is nonetheless very upsetting to see someone else claiming this as their own work.

My Marie is also on journals, calendars, home wares and cards published by my

licensing partners so she is well known as my original creation.

I am very sad that this has happened and to the people who have taken her…

I am sorry you do not have the time or talent or honesty to create your own work..
