Artist Statement and Process 


Beginning with your completed questionnaire, I sketch important events and focus, if you love the beach, golf, sailing, those moments will be placed prominently. It is the way I will spin and weave your tale together, which makes it so much fun.  The story follows a story line and will feature childood, education, wedding... and then I grab my acrylics and off I go.  Adding a logo, a town, sports team, caricatures smiling, a reference on a sign, with humor this colorful art form will celebrate you, with each and every brushstroke. 


"They say art should "speak to you" your art "speaks volumes" to the ones you love, as you save your story. Capturing memories is the thread of all of my pieces, as I save personal stories, historic towns and locations, the memories featured brings a smile to your face and to mine!!  Seton McGlennon, Nostalgia Artist


Seton's Story  

A born illustrator, this self taught American artist from Short Hills, NJ, has always seen the funny and sentimental side of life.  A graduate of Millburn High School and 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, the business became a full-time venture when she offered her home ornaments to fellow Realtors. Seton could capture any design on her ornament and each one she created 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 created her unique concept in art, featuring the Story of your LIfe.

Many original designs working 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, are just a few of the happy clients.


In 2004 and again in 2006 Seton designed and created the personal Christmas gifts given by President and Mrs. G. Bush and her art now joins the George Bush Center and Presidential Library in Dallas, TX.


Seton is here to capture your memories and save moments uniquely yours for the generations to enjoy, Collectors from around the world enjoy heir very private memories and you will enjoy yours!
