This piece is a compilation of many historical images as well as photos of friends and family who posed. I had a cupboard full of Laura Ashley dresses for the children to wear.

This illustration appears in the American Girl book Samantha’s World - 1904. Like much children’s book art, this American Girl job offered modest compensation. I accepted it, though, because there were many drawings and I could finish them quickly.
