Janice MacLeod's Profile

About

I am the author of New York Times best selling travel memoir PARIS LETTERS based on the painted letters in my Etsy shop. I am an author and artist. I write and paint illustrated letters about my previous travels and life in Paris, and send them in the mail. I can often be found sketching at a café. Or I'm at the post office buying stamps.

You may recognize my work from the Etsy: Quit Your Day Job series: https://blog.etsy.com/en/2013/quit-your-day-job-the-paris-letters-by-janiceartship/

About the book PARIS LETTERS:

"In a similar vein to Under the Tuscan Sun or Eat, Pray, Love … Recommended for those who enjoy similar travel memoirs and the romance of Paris." Library Journal…
