About TakeNoteCustomArt

Sales 135
On Etsy since 2014

I have come full circle!

I am an artist, specializing in watercolor/ink paintings. Buildings and cityscapes are my passion! I may decide to do a series of paintings of a town or city because I am struck by the architecture or some other unique quality. A couple of years ago I took the plunge and started my own business: Take Note Custom Art. People commission me to paint portraits of their homes and businesses. I then make a digital print of the painting and transform it into note cards, postcards, business cards, website headers, or whatever else suits their fancy. 





I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. Even when I am not painting, I am doing so in my imagination when I see something that inspires me - the cast of a shadow on the sidewalk, or a splatter of sunshine on a brick wall. I never run out of material. 
I now live in Cinnaminson, NJ where I have easy access to the Jersey Shore, Philadelphia, and charming small towns, all of which are a source of inspiration for my paintings

In many ways I have come full circle. The first time that I sold note cards of my paintings was when I was a violin student at Tanglewood, summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. I was an undergraduate student at Boston University, where I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting. Inbetween practicing for our weekly concerts, I would do quick watercolor sketches of the orchestra rehearsals - directly on the card stock. They sold like hotcakes in the bookstore! Fast forward to today - retailers now carry my note cards, postcards, and prints of cityscapes in their gift shops.



Now that I am retired from college teaching, I am able to devote myself to doing what I love and sharing it with others. Having an Etsy Store means that my note cards, prints, and commissioned home/business portraits are just a click away!
