Far & Familiar ancestor art

 

Meet my 3rd Great Grandmother Susan Stamper. Far (old) meets the familiar (contemporary) with an endearing heart felt encaustic art message with her striking image and aspirational words.

Lets creatively retell a familial story - graffiti style. You'll email me an old black/white photo and chosen words of wisdom and I'll give them a modern twist of colorization and stencil design.

digital enhanced personal photo

3-4 word advice in stencil block text
