The Memories are in the Brushstrokes 

Pinch CANVAS TO SEE DETAILS, AS THE MEMORIES ARE ALL INCLUDED images copyright setonmcglennon



Seton McGlennon's signature art is a refeshingly different spin on personal biographies, as the stories captured, celebrate the story you have to tell, in a mixed media contemporary piece, with a twist of folk.   


Tailored for any story, event or occasion, each work becomes a humorous, running narrative of the times of your life. A love story, family story, Corporate Identity or your Pet's Life, many moments and memories will abound within the colorful illustrations.  


Find homes tucked away, inside jokes played out, laugh at crazy comical pets, as the memories are revisited and tales told.. The family's heritage and traditions, a few secrets revealed each piece is an enjoyable visual experience. 


Saving personal moments will create a bridge between the generations, as they enjoy the present, learn about the past and keep the stories alive for the generations to come.  





Seton was Oprah's Favorite Thing,

       featured in People Magazine, Southern Living, 

      and commissioned by the White House.

Artist Statement 


For more than 27 years my brush has been happily saving personal stories, in each of my signature pieces. .  


Life is talking put loud and bursting with fun, as the illustrations spring to life and keep your memories alive. The process begins with reading your personal questionnaire, listening to your thoughts and moments, and then I can hardly wait to dive into weaving your tale on the canvas..


If the focus is the beach, college, sailing, travels, all I have to do is hear the words to illustrate your life story. 


Created in heavy acrylic and mixed media techniques, the artwork follows a story line going back in time. A reference here, a logo there, include a business card, the story evolves. Homes rendered, the locations captured. Favorite scenes played out. A beach trip, a crusie ship, each detail features a very personal reference, as I spin you story.


Humorous and heartfelt, a turn of a phrase, the story will smile from across the room, each and every time you view your custom story. 


My pieces, on canvas or delicate ornaments, capture what I try to capture, those intangible feelings, of happiness as you remember the time and smile at the "Memories in the Brushstrokes."
