Barrentine Leticia (Tish) Valentine
Born and raised in Brownsville, Texas, educated in Texas. Spent most of my career life in the Washington, DC area as a mortgage banker and later owned and managed a mortgage banking consulting and educational services firm with my husband. Moved to NC in October of 1992. During my corporate life I traveled extensively and started collecting antique art books and papers and educated myself on the art of decoupage. Taught decoupage at Durwin Rice Decoupage Convention in April of 2005 and have developed an international client base.
For as long as I can remember, I have always been creating. I started with fiber arts, oil painting and ultimately transitioned into decoupage where I have remained true to that art form that I love. My goal for 2012 is to create large intricate, traditional decoupage art.
While perfecting and developing the art of decoupage, I started lining up all my blank sources before I started my home-based business (Valentin’s Designs) in 2003. I create unique decoupage home and personal accessories. I am a permanent vendor at Metrolina Expo, a home décor, antiques and collectibles marketplace in Charlotte, NC. I also sell my decoupage jewelry and home décor items at art and holiday shows and several upscale boutique shops around the NC area, as well as West Virginia.
I studied Pedagogy and Sociology at the oldest university in Bulgaria – Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”. For many years I was a journalist, I had my own original television broadcasts. I have an advertising agency that specializes in promotional novelty items. I have a beautiful daughter – Anna, who studies Oriental and International relations. I love to work with my hands, I love taking pictures, I love details. I fell in love with Découpage 4 years ago. Now it is my world. I have many students. I am an award winner of the prestigious journal for decoration in Bulgaria – DECOR. I am proud to be the first Bulgarian member of the DAW.

Hi everybody, my name is Rosanna Del Bon. I was born and live in Cremona, a little town in Lombardia, Northern Italy, home of Antonio Stradivari. Decoupage was a love at first sight for me and for the past 17 years I have dedicated every spare moment of my day to my creations, to new techniques, and I try to teach them to my students.
I love classic decoupage and faux finishes that imitate woods, and marbles. The prints I use in my decorations come mainly from artbooks and are almost always repaint¬ed. I attend the Italian Guild of Découpage, Decoupage Italia, since 2002 in which I am the Artistic Director.
My works had been published in some of the most important decoupage magazines in Italy for more than 10 years. I’m very happy and proud to be part of this wonderful community.
