Arrived on time, exactly as pictured and packaged very securely. I LOVE this handmade vintage junk journal! It was an adventure paging thru it to see all the different pages and all the little embellishments. So fun and WOW, so much hard work went in to making this...coffee stained pages, stitching on some pages, little envelopes with wax seals. Can’t wait to start filling it up with journaling, song lyrics, photos, ticket stubs etc. Thanks again, Michelle for this work of art-- truly a masterpiece!!

Beautiful small painting with easel by special people. shipped promptly with a nice note. Thank you once again. Be well.
The Painter and the Paper Doll is a collaboration between two very different visual artists who have a singular idea about life, art and beauty.
While Robert has long desired applying himself as a visual artist and painter, he gave the better part of the last 25 years to his music. While touring, he began collecting art and more specifically, many of the outsider artists that appealed to him. Inspired by these oftentimes self taught artists, he has finally begun to apply himself as the painter he always felt he could be down deep inside. As a starting place, it was quite natural to begin by painting portraits of the music makers who had most "influenced" his career in music.
Michelle, like so many contemporary women today, found her way into the paper arts via scrapbooking and custom card making. But her restless desire to go beyond the simple family scrapbook quite naturally took her into making hand bound journals, photo albums, notebooks, and also continuing with scrapbooks and smashbooks. Where, for so many people working in the paper medium, it is more a craft, Michelle aims at paper as art. Using high quality materials and antique, as well as vintage books and ephemera, makes each of her finished pieces, truly one of a kind.
The studio where Robert and Michelle (The Painter and the Paper Doll) do their work is in a beautiful room at the back of their 1840's two-story brick home in the lovely and quaint Madison, Indiana. With a wall of windows that look out onto public green space and Crooked Creek, their love of nature is just beyond the work space. Together, they are approaching their first year as self taught artists and art entrepreneurs, and the Painter and the Paper Doll is their first foray with Etsy. Both agree and feel so blessed to have a partner who is happy spending long hours and late nights working in the studio, inspiring each other to try new things and take their natural talents to the next level. It helps that they are both genuine fans of the other's works.
Whether it's one of Robert's painted portraits, or Michelle's next hand bound journal, you can be sure they were made with passion, dedication and love for what they're doing.
