Below is some of what Toni wrote about herself

(taken from old sites profiles)

 
FROM HER PROFILE THAT WAS AT WWW.ALLINTO.COM

Toni Donelow Stewart 
Fine Art & Storybook Illustrator

 
MY ART EDUCATION has been minimal, as I am self-taught, and took a few community college courses in order to perfect my technique, and another purpose was to find out where I stood among other wannabe-artists.

About my artwork -- if you look into the eyes of the characters I draw, you will find my heart.

IN GENERAL, about me -- I am a person with many various talents and skills, ranging from my artwork to creative writing (and we do a lot of singing in our house, so that must mean something!), including songwriting, and essaying, and letter-writing -- skills also pour into areas such as do-it-yourself projects at home (not afraid to lift the hood of my van, but am limited to what I will work on,ha) -- am of course interested in desktop publishing, document design and newly touching on web-design as well (user-friendly thus far) -- digital photography and graphics as well. Day jobs usually consist of office work -- generally secretarial/word processing (yes I'm a fast typist!) and medical transcription. I don't limit myself as far as what new things I am capable of learning, and find this to be an optimistic and challenging outlook -- as I'm always finding something new to learn.

First of all, I might add, I'm the divorced mother of 2 young sons, who are the stars in my every sky, Bryan and Jeremy. (That is motivation!)

I did not spend years entering art-contests, or selling my art in art fairs, or promoting it to anything but a limited number of book publishers (offline!) during the past decade -- my artwork has been something that's been placed on "back-burner," due to life's always getting in the way -- it has always been my wish to bring it to the fore, and it has taken a great deal of time getting here, thanks!

More of Toni's words about herself

from www.artarchiv.net/doku/toni.htm (link still active)

I am a person with many various talents and skills, ranging from my artwork to creative writing (and we do a lot of singing in our house, so that must mean something!), including songwriting, and essaying, and letter-writing - skills also pour into areas such as do-it-yourself projects at home (I wasn't afraid to lift the hood of my old van, but am limited to what I will work on,ha) - am [of course] interested in desktop publishing, document design and newly touching on web-design as well (user-friendly thus far) - digital photography and graphics as well. Day jobs usually consist of office work - generally Administrative Assistant secretarial word processing (yes I'm a fast typist!) and I am a self-taught medical transcriptionist. I don't limit myself as far as what new things I am capable of learning, and find this to be an optimistic and challenging outlook - as I'm always finding something new to learn.....

Note: The profile at artarchiv.net (which is still presently up) contains a flipbook similar to the one on the top of this page.  I've always loved flipbooks so I decided to create one here (the original only had six images total, mine has 49).
