What is your favourite book? A classic? A book of poetry? What keeps you coming back to it?
This original painting is created with your favourite page from your favourite story in mind. I'm thrilled to offer this painting as a custom, because I love story and books and all that come with the coziness of settling deep into a piece of fiction that completely has my heart. With this painting, I want to be able to provide you with a memory of something you cherish.
This custom package includes the painting taken from a page in your favourite book, a matt to frame the painting, the reused book (which I purchase for you) and free shipping. The average book size is 5x7 - 6x9, which is included in the price. However, if you want to go larger, there will be an extra charge for the weight of shipping and size. I purchase a reused book for you, chat with you about your colours of choice, and paint with the theme of the book in mind.
It's no secret that I love books. I have been a reader and writer since childhood, and I carry a few precious, vintage books with me wherever I venture. I wanted to bring to life how I feel about certain stories, by painting on the story itself. Written text brings a beautiful ascetic to layers of paint, and I love working with the script and influence of story. After doing this for myself, I'm excited to offer it as an intimate, individual memory for others.
The page photographed is from a 1947 publication of Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, a favourite book of mine from childhood. I captured the warmth of family, the bond between sisters, and the ambition and growth of love and pain. Click below to get started. I'll be in touch via email, and we'll chat about your favourite colours, what you love about your book of choice, and any questions you have!
