I was recently asked to paint a custom canvas for a client. Her friends are getting married and she wants to needlepoint a wedding pillow for them. We worked together on creating a color palette and a design that would reflect their modern tastes. Another friend of the couple is a graphic designer and created a monogram that incorporates both of the couple’s initials. I placed the monogram inside of a geometric border made with two tones of French blue. With the client’s preference of fibers and skill level in mind, I also created a stitch guide for her with Impressions, Silk and Ivory, Kreinik, pearl cotton, and Sundance beads.

The client loved it and so do I, so I thought I’d share it with all of you to let you know that my services are available for custom designs. I love to create beautiful, unique canvases that reflect the personalities of those who will be using them. I am honored that this will be a part of their love and life story. What can I make for you or your family and friends that may one day be a cherished family heirloom?
