There are a few old prints of my mother’s out there which are probably from the late 1940’s. This was a period when she was working in advertising and doing illustrations for J. Walter Thompson. Oftentimes, her ads for Textron come up on Ebay, and they feature one of her fashion illustrations on their website. Somehow, during this time, someone made prints of her work without her knowledge (or compensation.) I don’t have most of these prints or the paintings themselves, but people have sent me snapshots of the pieces. I am posting some of them, since I get many inquiries about these. Some were enlarged, which made them fuzzy (this infuriated my mother, who didn’t approve.)

A snapshot of a snow scene.

Another snapshot of a spring scene (sorry about the flash reflection.)

I think this may be hers, too. Early work.
