Wilna Clark-GeramiWilna Clark-Gerami

After having lived many years 'away' in Toronto, Montréal and Ottawa, my husband and I,
along with our little rabbit Nim, returned home to Prince Edward Island for good in 2012.

While in Montréal, I earned honours in both Graphic Design and Professional Photography programs. 

Since returning home (in between working full-time) I have setup an online Studio named StoppenLook, 
illustrated a book for David Weale called 'Christmas Star Power', have published a story/illustration in
'Red' magazine, done poster work and many trade/craft shows. My work can be found locally at 'Artisans on Main' in Montague, PEI.

We bought a little 'teapot' house in town about five years ago and I spend many hours working in our gardens 
and going for walks out and about our beautiful Island.

I hope that my work will bring a little smile of happiness to your eyes.

I am a retired teacher/librarian, a storyteller and a writer.
I enjoy sharing the world of children's books and the wealth of local stories with friends and family, especially my two delightful grandchildren. Like my iconic idol, L. M. Montgomery, I have a fondness for cats and live with two feline friends in Charlottetown.
As Mrs. Buttons,* I look forward to sharing thoughts on some favorite children's books through StoppenLook!

*A word about the name, Mrs. Buttons -
A few summers ago I picked up a one-pound bag of miscellaneous buttons that took my eye. I soon realized that some of the prettiest had matches in another bag, which I bought as well. I meticulously sorted my buttons into small sectioned boxes which I added to at every chance. Two bags grew to twelve! At twelve pounds(!!) a dear aunt smilingly handed me a photo of my great-great grandmother beautifully dressed in an outfit buttoned from neck to toe. My sister Wlna burst into laughter when she heard and saw how many buttons in my treasure trove - she hugged me and dubbed me Mrs. Buttons.

You can find our "rack cards" (info postcards) at Avonlea Village in the Artisan Studio and the larger tourist bureaus on the Island. (See front and back images below)
