The desire to be creative and the passion to create.
I love to create and I will try anything!
Here is a story about another form of art that I am passionate about, and the business that I created because of it.
This is the story about Carbon Impressions Cremation Art.
Art has always been a part of me, and my life. Aside from my love for drawing and fine arts, I have been a hat maker and costume designer for theater companies for over 10 years. I am also a self-taught photographer with a strong intrigue and fascination for nature. The beauty of the natural world is what inspires me when creating drawings from cremains.
The motivations that lead me to start Carbon Impressions were truly gifts from God and my late father. His passing happened at the same time I was taking an art class at a local college. During the difficult time when my father was ill, the drawing class brought me comfort and therapy. The class re-awakened my passion and love for art and drawing.
After my father passed, I wanted my mother to have something more than a lonely urn to remember him. Knowing that my mother shared my love of art, I contemplated creating a drawing using his cremains hoping it would be a comforting gift for my mother. I have great admiration and love for my father and found that the process of drawing with my father’s ashes was very soothing and healing. I felt that the finished artwork gave me a lasting impression of comfort and peace. My mother loved it and others soon became interested. Carbon Impressions was born.
I would like to share that experience with you and your family. The memory of a lost loved one can be preserved in an original piece of artwork created from a small portion of their cremains bringing comfort and peace to you as well.
