About

Hello Welcome. My name is Minnie.
Being an only child I painted quite a lot on my own, and painting with watercolors came quite naturally to me, but I didn't pursue a career in it.
Quite by chance I was asked by an Antique Bookseller to hand paint some Antique Engravings. He had seen some engravings that we had bought and I had painted.

I was hooked. Through Antique prints my interests grew deeper into Natural History and Botany. That was over 40 years ago, and since then there has only been a few days when I haven't picked up a brush.
Right now I am enjoying my Etsy shop, working hard to make it grow and meeting new friends around the world thru the friendship of Etsy.
