Barbara Anne Williams designs from her home in the beautiful Cache Valley of northern Utah where she finds inspiration in her natural surroundings, home and family, and old books. Her first serious attempt at artwork was a calligraphy class at the university where she fell in love with paper, ink and the history of the art. As a freelance artist she has been creating and selling digital artwork for crafters, scrapbookers and card-makers at Bits of Ivory since 2001, and is thrilled to now be offering some of her digital artwork through Buddly Crafts.
In addition to her digital artwork, Barbara finds that she can’t resist the urge to take up a pair of scissors, feel the delicious texture of paper in her hands, and get her fingers delightfully inky. As a result, she designs and creates unique, handcrafted books, cards, tags and other little keepsakes that she posts here on the blog for inspiration.
Milly Williams (also known as Obviously Milly) is a student who loves music, art and reading a good book with a cup of chamomile tisane. She loves to paint in oil and watercolor, and is happiest when she has a brush (or guitar) in her hands. She has spent over a year as a service volunteer in Denmark, and will soon be delighting us with all things Danish!
The name of our blog, “Bits of Ivory,” is a result of a love for all things Jane Austen, which, as it turns out, is hereditary. This is our cozy little home on the web, and we hope when you stop by you’ll feel like you’re visiting friends.
