I work closely with you and your family to create Keepsake Art that captures the spirit of your loved ones.
A Keepsake Art Story
Like many of us, Karen had her daughter’s memorable childhood items stored in a closet, and a big blank wall in the family room calling for art. Karen knew of my unique, custom Keepsake Art. She engaged me to portray her daughter, Lydia’s, remarkable violin talent by featuring one of her two gorgeous, early recital dresses along with many of the treasured items.
Together, we chose the elegant black and purple dress for it’s luminous, flowing skirt. I positioned the dress, then added Lydia’s first violin sheet music (Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star), toddler shoes, a butterfly bow accessory, and Lydia’s handmade origami stars around it. I also sourced an inexpensive violin and bow that truly sets off the art.
All of the items and the canvas colors were composed to fit the wall’s space and to dramatically enhance the room. We also wanted to bring the essence of the family’s Italian heritage into their historic home by painting a timeless, romantic evening background in a brushed stucco texture, reminiscent of old Italy. The resulting art is an enchanting, lively, three dimensional work of art that celebrates so much of what is special about Lydia and her family.
If you have a loved one you would like to remember and celebrate through my Keepsake Art, I would love to collaborate with you.
