Do you want a large image of your travel photos, house or family photos enhanced by an artist on a canvas?

These mixed media paintings are based on my travel and and vintage family photos. I created many works successfully and exhibited them in galleries. Now I accept custom commissions.

I only need your photo (which will be returned to you) to begin. The photo can be horizontal or vertical. I will copy parts of your photo in black and white and enhance parts with paint. I welcome your initial input about memories of the place, favorite area of the photo, etc. The price is based on the size of the canvas. The canvases are finished on the sides ( about 1 inch deep) so that framing is optional. It will be delivered wired and ready to hang.

 

Frequently asked questions

Q: Can you make a larger size painting?
A: Yes, I will work on any size you wish. The price is based on the cost/ size of the canvas.
Q: Can my painting be on a deeper canvas?
A: Yes, The difference in cost will be the additional cost of the canvas. The smaller profile is easier to frame.
I will be posting more of my mixed media paintings both to sell and to give you an idea what I can do with your image.

Use- reuse- cut waste!

Use- reuse- cut waste!

My new venture in art…

In this year of Environmental Crisis, I came up with a plan for “use- reuse- cut waste’ and make it applicable to our day to day life. Here you have a unique opportunity to get handmade bags exclusively designed by me.

I am selling these handmade silk screen tote bags.

The bags are reversible and have a silkscreen image designed by me on one side. They are roomy and are meant to substitute for a disposable grocery bag. They are also good as an all-around tote. My daughter appropriated my first bag and it is now going all around Manhattan with her. I want you to love your bag (actually bags- most people end up with more than one) so much that you don’t even think about using a disposable bag.

I have always wanted to learn silkscreen printing. It is relatively low-tech, I can use inks friendly to the environment and to me. The designs are anything that I can draw or paint and the process can show “my hand”. I like the idea of placing my art on everyday objects. I also plan to incorporate my silkscreen designs into my mixed media art work. Use- reuse- cut waste. I collect beautiful fabrics. These bags are mostly one of a kind. I am selling what you see. I can make a bag based on color preference and can print in any color ink.
