Announcement    When I got my hands on my first World War I poster (over 100 years old), in its worn-out, decrepit state, I grieved for its loss. That is, until I spent weeks with Photoshop (my weapon of mass distinction), restoring it to pristine condition. Saving one wasn’t enough for me. I’m one of the few artists in the world who is dedicated to the restoration of vintage WW1 Red Cross posters. Everything in my shop I’ve restored digitally myself. I’ve healed them from cracks, water damage, tears, scratches, creases, yellowing, sun damage, fading, and smudges. I even rebuild missing pieces. I do this to preserve our history. I'm a U.S. veteran myself, which is why bringing these back to life is personal to me.

Thank you for visiting my shop!

Love and light,
Ell
