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 her claiming this as her 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 person who took her…
I am sorry you think it is ok to steal rather than create your own work.

Many 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.
