The Sidewalk Artist

A novel by


"Charming and alluring in the old magical senses of the words, The Sidewalk Artist makes even the jaded heart believe in the powers of love and art again. Inspiring."
Susann Cokal

"The Sidewalk Artist is an inventive tale, beautifully and skillfully told. It is a story that swiftly sweeps the reader up into two intricate and compelling worlds, and does not let go until the very last word. This is a very special book."
Diane Haeger

"A deliciously dreamlike tale of modern love and Renaissance romance."
Jeanne Kalogridis

"An enchanting story of love and art, bringing to life the passion that inspires both."
James McKean

"A fantasia of a double tale skimming through the art capitals of Europe with double muses, double love pursuits, double Raphaels, even double authors, a tale dripping with idealized romantic settings, mystery, art, and a touch of magic, The Sidewalk Artist will keep readers wondering what is real and what is artifice--as fine paintings always do."
Susan Vreeland

While in Europe researching her next novel, twenty-something American Tulia Rose falls headlong into a romance with a handsome sidewalk artist. As he takes her on a tour of Europe's artistic treasures, she begins writing the story of the painter Raphael and his secret lover. Yet as her own affair grows deeper, Tulia's sidewalk artist grows more mysterious. Why does he seem so familiar? And what is his connection to the great Renaissance painter?

Set in Paris and Italy, this lyrical first novel interweaves two parallel love stories, offering readers a unique view on the research and inspiration that goes into creating historical novels such as The Girl with the Pearl Earring and The Birth of Venus.
