Seton's Story 



"Capturing memories is the thread in all of my pieces,, large or small, each heirloom speaks to you and the ones you love!"

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 Presidential Libraries and the finest locations world-wide..


Artist Process  


Beginning with your completed questionnaire, your mere words conjur up the images I use, as I sketch important events and the focus of your design. Then I grab my acrylilcs and off I go spinning your memories into a "hidden picture painting" of your story. Caricatures smiling, rendered homes, a reference on a sign, if you love the beach, golf, sailing, those moments will be placed prominently within the artwork as I use a spin of phrase, an inside joke, a bit of satire... the piece springs to life..


It is the way I use my brush to spin and weave your tale together, which makes it so much fun, The children and grandchildren will actually see themselves in their own family saga, as the artwork becomes a true "visual experience",
