I grew up in Chicago, surrounded by a family of creative and stylish men and women. It’s in my blood. After earning a degree in Fashion Illustration, I spent 30 plus years establishing a career in advertising and graphic design while continuing to illustrate fashion mostly for my own enjoyment. Eventually it became an online business. I sell fashion prints, note cards, t-shirts and now, jigsaw puzzles. I write a little bit on the side too. Life is sweet and I just want to share. And earn a living too while doing it.

      Thank you Sam. I’m really no longer up on the happenings in Chicago but I understand that things are really popping in Bronzeville these days. Restaurants, boutiques, nightlife. all of that. When I lived in Chicago, you wouldn’t ride down the streets of this area for fear of your life and now, well, it’s a brand new day.

      I just subscribed to your blog too! It’s so festive and colorful with great diversity, which is missing on so many others. Kudos! And enjoy Chicago. It’s a beautiful city.
