To Ellen

This blog is made to the honor of my grandmother Ellen Elisabeth Thomsen who was a modern woman .
She was born in Randers in Denmark 1895 and died in Copenhagen 1976.
She had long salmon red hair down to her hips. It was braided and put up with lots of hairpins to make it look short.

Back in time Artists did not find it degrading to earn part of their living as 
illustrators for magazines books or posters . They also designed ceramics and porcelain,
