This is where the magic is happening!

An ongoing collection of illustrations fueled by my passion passion for the craftsmanship and artistry of the last 19th and early 20th century; particularly Art Nouveau and Art Deco. When I became a Docent with Chicago Architecture Foundation, the research, which includes on-site as well as books/library, rekindled the spark I had during college.

Over the past several years, I’ve been conducting my own personal study into the details… details that we often overlook or ignore. Before machines and computers became commonplace for design, everything was done by HAND. Yes, we had the printing press and casting machines, I’m referring to the hand craftsmanship of the stone mason, muralists,¬†and others who labored in their studios to create amazing work.

Products produced with my images are available on my Etsy shop.
