StoryBoard Process  

My concept in art, 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 art.  


I begin with your words and a sketch of important events and the focus of the painting, be it the beach, mountains, or travels. It is the way I spin your tale together, which makes it fun to find all the memories and the art does follow a time line. Childood, education, wedding...

When I begin, I grab my inks, acrylics and and weave your story as the layers appear. A logo, business card, the caricatures speaking and smiling from the colorful art form, your story is celebrated with each brushstroke.


Artist Statement

They say art should speak to you- my concept in art speaks to the generations and becomes a bridge from one generation to another! My art allows the memories to be the common thread, as I save a favorite story, family traditions, a wedding, corporate identity or a pet's life, the artwork brings a smile to each and every face, and that brings a smile to mine!

Seton McGlennon, nostalgia artist



Artist Biography

A born illustrator, this self taught artist from Short Hills, NJ, has always seen the funny and sentimental side of life.  A graduate of Millburn High & Katherine Gibbs, this happy Camp Tegawitha camper, became a Realtor along the Jersey Shore in Normandy Beach & the Outer Banks of NC.

A unique talent emerged when, as a realtor, Seton began creating miniature portraits of her client's homes on glass ornaments and presenting them as her closing gifts, the client's loved them!


In 1993, this nostalgia artist's  business became a full-time venture, when she offered her home ornaments to fellow realtors. Seton could capture and create any design and all held personal memories for one and all. It was that personal touch and creativity which propelled her in the marketplace and garnered quite a bit of attention.


Celebrities, politicians and clients world-wide "remember the time," as this artist of memories has created original designs for the NFL, Oprah, as her Favorite Thing, featured in PEOPLE Magazine, Regis & Kathie Lee, The Home & Family Show and commissioned by the White House, in 2004 and 2006 to design and create the personal Chirstmas gifts given by President and Mrs. G. Bush. Her art now joins the G. W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas, TX.


Seton's highly personal artwork, joins collections around the world, as each symbolic piece to dispaly on the wall, or to hold in the palm of your hand, celebrates a very private memory, yours to enjoy!
