WESTPORT, Conn. – A local Westport businesswoman and her dog are trying to take her vintage artwork creations to the next level by seeking funding through a Kickstarter campaign.

Alexandra Wolf sells her artwork on Etsy under her business name, Black Baroque . Her works consist of altered antique illustrations from her book collection, which she prints on old book pages and frames.  Her goal is to raise $12,457 to make these creations into magnets, according to her Kickstarter page.

The magnets would be made in the shape of the specific images and can be displayed on refrigerators, cars or any magnet-friendly surface, her page says.  Her fundraising story, told from the point of view of her dog, Poni, says Wolf’s line of eco-friendly art prints were inspired by her love of nature and antique books.

“Like a dog with wings that could fly! Perhaps you could you could send some pawsitive thoughts our way! Or cross your paws and say your prayers for us that our dreams will come true,” Poni says on the campaign page.

Wolf sells her art prints in 41 countries and her work has been featured in eight international magazines and on HGTV, her site says.

Previously, Wolf created and sold her own line of dog and cat bowl sets and toys. She also used to run a boutique shop in New Hampshire called Poni’s Parlor.
