Custom Work…

IMG_2662

This custom ordered piece went to its new home the other day! Adapted from a larger piece I created, this version of “Unpathed Waters” had been requested to give as a birthday gift. The “canvas” used was a vintage wood and galvanized drawer and little elements were added to make the piece more personal. I love creating something knowing who it’s for… The next custom project centers around coastal Maine. I can’t wait to get started!

Without Question…

I just finished this piece yesterday. It’s a revamped, oversized version of a concept I have visited before. Framed with a found vintage window screen frame, it is hanging and ready for public consumption at this weekend’s Brocante Market

A Nod To Distant Revolutions

IMG_1206

Made with vintage ephemera (letter dated 1837, French postage stamp and Eiffel Tower postcard) in a salvaged window frame.

“Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité,” French for “Freedom, Equality, Brotherhood,” is the national motto of France which has origins in the French Revolution.

The Eiffel Tower was built to celebrate the centennial of the French Revolution.

This new piece can be seen in person at Brocante Market, Saturday and Sunday, July 5th & 6th.

“Sonnet 43”

sonnet 43

Made with vintage ephemera (Portuguese stamps and pages from a Portuguese dictionary) in a vintage window frame.

Quote is from “Sonnets from the Portuguese” by Elizabeth Barrett Browning.
