Look! I've been featured by the Tyrtle!
(Who created the above image! :)

"The word "lush" is the best way to describe this beautiful collection of web pages -- lush words and images that culminate in what might well be another world. Dive into the stories Francesca offers, and you'll find yourself transported -- looking into the eyes of a young mermaid, wandering in a Victorian wilderness of words, or stroking hair that reminds you of feathers. Thumb through her "Extremely Limited Gallery of Almost None of the Many Works I've Done". If I didn't know better, I would have reached out to touch the textures of her graphics through my computer monitor. Do you think the web is impersonal and cold? You're going to change your mind within five minutes of roaming Francesca's site."

"Rating: Excellent. Sensational! Amazing, inspired links.
Incredible woman artist runs this site.
One the best feminist sites I've found! Don't miss it."
-- Rhea Worrell @ Pleiades Web Site Review

". . .funny and snazzy-lookin'. . ."
