Announcement   S Dunn, our resident artist, when teaching, loved to read stories to her students. Every day the students were allowed to cuddle up with a stuffed animal or pillow and find a comfy spot in the classroom. Ms. Dunn would then read to them a warm, enchanting story that would lead them all to a place of imagination and inspiration. When her teaching ended, Ms. Dunn found another way to continue telling stories through her paintings. GramsArt is where she tells her stories now.

The 'story' may be about a customers special dog or cat. Or the story may be about a woman in Africa, a favorite character from a movie or book, or a family of elephants on the savannah. With her custom backgrounds, designs, colors and hand-painted frames, she brings to a canvas the warmth, inspiration, and emotions of a good story. Inspired by the impressionists, she adds light and shadows and old-world charm to every painting.

Our paintings have been shipped all over the world...from Australia to England with France in between, from Maine to Florida and across the US. Our art is American made by a lake in the Northwestern US. All items are sent double boxed and insured. We always try to keep our shipping cost down while insuring our products safe arrival.

So sit down and browse through our paintings and read the 100 reviews of our satisfied patrons.

About

The Art Room: stories to tell

The beauty of living in the 21st century lies in the fact that women have many options. S Dunn is a wife, a mother and a Gramma....hence the name suggested by a grandchild: 'GramsArt.' As a teacher, she has used her art to inspire and educate her students in being life-long learners. Learning does not stop when school ends. And life doesn't stop when your children are grown, your teaching ends, and there are no longer the duties of chauffer, large meals to cook, and prom dresses to pick out.

The Art Room has a tall artist's desk, a wall of paints, paint spattered water containers for brushes, piles of brushes of odd shapes and sizes, a daybed, bookcases filled with art books and classics, Miss Bobbie sleeping on her bed under my feet, and my tall, swiveling chair.

Here is where the joy resides. And where animals and people come to life under the paintbrushes in S Dunn's capable hand. Love resides here and hopefully finds its way onto every canvas.

    Owner

    It was a dark and stormy night..well...it was a light bulb moment anyway when S Dunn enrolled in college to complete her Bachelor of Arts. Along the way and under the tutelage of her art instructor Richard Davis, she acquired 52 credits of art.

  • Ken

    Assistant, Packaging

    Our shipping department is headed, staffed and quality controlled by Ken, the artist's husband. He is the MacGyver of GramsArt and designs and constructs all the boxes in which our art is packaged and shipped.
