Swanilda’s Studio


My new online textbook written with writing partner Kim Cavaunaugh

Latest book news: Our online textbook was adopted by the public school system in Palm Beach County, FL: Fundamentals of Web Communication with Dreamweaver CC

I am often asked, “What’s a Swanilda? ” So for those of you who are curious about the origin of the name, here is the story: Swanilda is the main character in the world’s most famous comedy ballet, “Coppelia.” The evil doll maker, Dr. Coppelius, tries to make everyone believe that a beautiful doll he created is real. Even Swanilda’s boyfriend falls in love with the doll. Swanilda is determined to get at the truth, and is able to expose the doll’s emptiness for what it really is.

In an era where truth in advertising often is non existent, Swanilda’s Studio offers old fashioned values, care for the client, and quality craftsmanship. Specializing in arts organizations, nonprofits, and small businesses, Swanilda’s Studio has been creating Web sites since 1995.
