Norma Linda Ventura's Profile

About

I'm a self taught artist, who likes to work in several different mediums. I get most of my inspiration from fashion as it has always had a very strong influence on me. Growing up I collected paper dolls, not so much to play with but just to be able to design their clothes myself. I taught myself to sew at 13, and branched out to designing accessories soon after. I open myself up to the inspiration around me and when I find something that intrigues me I go to work. fully consumed with new passion. As you'll be able to tell from my shop, I do small groups of items and never duplicate a design, so every item is truly "one of a kind". I have just finished a line of polymer heart necklaces as part of my newest "Sacred Hearts" collection. I also design and collect vintage hats, clothes, and jewelry, most from the 40's & 50's. I have designed and created silk handbags, hats, dolls, jewelry, shoes and t-shirts.
