Mixed media painting with lettering

When you change the way you look at things The Things you look at change.

This is a mixed media painting I did a few years ago for myself.  I sold it within a month of showing it.  I enjoy creating art and incorporating calligraphy into it.  All my work has words somewhere on it...hence, The Word is ART, my logo.

A Place to Bark

 Original mixed media art

A page I created to be added to a book that I also created as a fund raiser a few years ago for Bernie Berlin's, A Place to Bark.  I invited 26 other artists to participate and was happily rewarded with all yes'. The book had a 6" spine holding 30 pages of original art including a title page, artist page and colophon in calligraphy.  The book went to auction on ebay and sold for over $1,000.  A worthy cause and place indeed.

Anniversary Love Letter in Calligraphy

Happy Anniversary Letter in Calligraphy

My client wrote a love letter to his wife for their anniversary.  It was a beautiful and endearing letter and I was thrilled to create this gift of love for him.

Personalizing a Ukulele

Calligraphy on a Ukulele

This was definitely challenging to have to write on an instrument, especially on the arch and the slick surface.  This had to be permanent and carefully evenly written.  My client was pleased with the results.

Seating chart for a Wedding

Large Seating Chart for Wedding

This was a very large piece due the desire of my clients to have the word Welcome be large for the guests to see as they entered the reception.

Original Birth Announcement

Custom Birth Announcement

This was a personal custom birth announcement gift given to my husbands eldest grandson and his wife for their first child which makes us also for the first time, great grand parents.  The flowers were saved from their wedding and dried over several years. It was for no particular reason that they were saved at the time, but found a perfect use for them now.  The letters in the baby's name were hand drawn, scored, cut and sculpted before mounting them on the background paper.  The parents names were calligraphed and double mounted at the bottom and everything was placed into a shadow box frame that also was being saved for no particular reason.  On the back, I calligraphed the information to be filled in when Sofia will be born, hopefully very soon now.  The entire piece came together as was meant to be.

Children Learn What They Live

"Children Learn What They Live" by Dorothy Law Nolte

I was commissioned to recreate this piece from what I had originally created many years ago, to be hung in a children's rehab facility in Ohio.  The original seen here is quite large matted and then framed by the client.  The client wanted several copies in different sizes for herself so I scanned the original so that it can be printed in various sizes.  I will have this in my etsy shop to be sold in several different sizes as a giclee on premium paper.
