Custom Wedding Gift

Made with vintage ephemera including a 1940s French novel and 1950s sewing patterns and custom text I created from found words, this project is one of my favorites!

A recent request for a custom wedding gift for a couple who’ve dedicated their lives to protecting others, led to this oversized blue heart to celebrate their special day. 24″ x 24″ on extra deep art board – with a short turn-around time, this project took about two weeks, start to finish, with ample drying time in between the 6+ layers of paper, paint, charcoal and ink, and sealant.
