My dad, a retired Chicago cop, loved his Chicago Police trivet. And he's not one to fawn over decor items. He stopped his present opening on Christmas to find the perfect place to display it.

This is the PERFECT Christmas gift

The way the photography is done and layered over the tile is captivating - makes you want to study it. I think the artist should have a sticker with her web info because everyone raves about these when they see them.
Tasked with filling a blank wall in her new West Loop condo, Mandy Adamick turned to her new surrounding for inspiration.
Black and white photos of the neighborhood landmarks sublimated to canvas sparked a new style and a new business.
A previous small business with a friend ended in Mandy getting her first "real" camera. On a whim, she and her husband took a walking tour of the West Loop and decided to snap a couple pictures to blow up to use in their new condo. When the pictures weren't as awe-inspiring as they had in mind, Mandy turned to the computer to see if she could alter them in a way that made them more urban, more abstract and more them.
What resulted was a new black and white style with small splashes of color to break up the grayscale. The contrast of the lines of the architecture subjects with the soft texture of the canvas makes for a stunning display when hung in a large group of eight or more. Inviting guests to stop and stare for a minute to pick out familiar places, this artwork is something that changes the longer you stare, different pieces coming into focus.
Owner, Maker, Designer
An artist trapped in a computer engineer's body, Mandy is the epitome of the right brain/left brain struggle. An IT professional by day and a photography and digital art creative by weekend, keeping the balance is what it's all about.
I've received a lot of questions on how to hang the canvases. I purposely leave the back of the canvas blank to allow the buyer to hang how they wish. I recommend either a medium strength double-sided velcro strip for brick or non-painted walls. Velcro will probably take some paint off depending on the adhesive strength.
For painted walls, I suggest double sided tacks which can be found at Home Depot in the picture hanger section. Nail one end into the wall and push the canvas onto the end sticking out. I suggest two per canvas so you can level it easily. If you use one tack and are not perfectly centered, the canvas can swing on that tack.
