I am a mother, daughter, artist, an entrepreneur and most recently, an author. I love history and art and that's a very important part of my work. I am an honors graduate of Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia and a former art teacher.
I am the owner of Past Images By Anita, a unique business I formed in 1999 to use my background as a classically trained artist and my passion for art to help to preserve precious family heirlooms and treasures. My company, Past Images By Anita, provides photo and painting restoration, and doll repair and restoration, to clients around the world. I have also lectured to various historical societies, doll clubs, genealogy conferences and retirement clubs about preservation of their photos and antiques. It pleases me that I am able to help people save their treasured possessions to enjoy now and pass onto future generations
I currently live in the Philadelphia suburbs on a property that dates to the early 1800’s with my son and his wife in a haunted house complete with at least 5 spirits at the present. I’ve been keeping a detailed notebook on all of the frequent paranormal occurrences happening at my house for the last 4 years and am writing a sequel to my first book, Estate of Horror. The continued ghostly occurrences are very frightening. There have been frequent visits from a local paranormal group as they want to document these extraordinary spirited events at her unconventional house. It is their belief that her stories of her ghostly encounters could go down in the annuals of paranormal history as one of the greatest ghost stories of all time.
