About the Book
This is the second book I have published. It is compiled of images & designs my husband Al Ludlow & I have created over the last 11 years. They have been a huge part of our retirement and will continue to be. May the creating continue! It's all so very fulfilling to experience the reaction to our images.
About the Artist Birgie (Platz, Stoll, Ludlow) I was born in Flensburg, Germany as Birgit Platz in June 1947. My parents Karin and John Platz and brother Helmut and I immigrated to Canada in 1952. In 1965 while still a student at Ancaster High & Vocational School , Malcolm Gerner was my art teacher for 5 years) I enrolled in a correspondence course with Art Instruction Schools. It was this course that gave me the drive to perhaps pursue a career in the commercial art field. There were so many possible avenues to travel. My three dreams were Fashion Design or that of a Greeting Card Artist or perhaps even a Children’s Art Teacher. In the spring of 1966 while still in grade 12, I decided to find a way to fulfill my dreams. My first interview was with a well known Burlington Fine Artist - George Barbu, owner of then Hamilton Silk Screen, a government agency gave me his name. He was kind enough to assess a large sampling of my highschool & art school work.
