Ancestor Art

intuitive, mysterious and meaningful

When I see stacks of tossed aside old photos in family storage, estate sales and antique stores, I am intrigued by their journey to the place of unwantedness.

 

I feel strongly that creativity can transform these forsaken photographs into reclaimed stories.

Ancestor art is a private pARTy with you + a few friends where your beloved photos + my art supplies merge to create a compelling one of a kind masterpiece. 

I provide everything - you just B.Y.O.Ancestor! Don't have a photo to art up - no worries - adopt one of mine in the train trunk.
