Vintage images reborn, Marie Antoinette before and after

Wendys artworkMany of you may wonder where I find my Marie Antoinette and other

 lovely vintage characters for my artwork and designs.

Well, most are readily available as public domain images in their original form.

However they undergo dramatic facelifts and costume changes in my hands,

working with photoshop and sometimes original watercolour and gouache.

Many hours of work goes into their transformation.

My goal is to achieve a visual harmony with the past and present

adding exquisite detail and charm.

I love to transform beautiful new characters from the old,

sometimes very shabby vintage images.
