Story Board Process begins with a tailored questionnaire, as you gather memorabilia and photos to create a custom story. Captured in acrylic/mixed media, each piece is tailored for any private story, event or occasion and what is loved will be featured prominently within the colorful piece.
Beginning with your words, a sketch of important events and the focus of the painting is featured. It is the way I spin your tale together, which makes it fun as the story board follows a time line.Childood, education, wedding... Then I grab my acrylics and begin, add a logo, a town, sports team, as the caricatures speak and smile from the colorful art form, celebrated with each brushstroke.
