Announcement   * Please note: I am changing the shop's title from "Mary's Art, Carving and Sign Studio"
to "MCA Arts-N-Graphic Studio" since there are both sign-making along with other types
of wooden-related artwork that are made in this studio.

* These signs, carvings, and wood reliefs are artistically done in either novelty or personalized styles by the artist. The overall style of my art shop is "Americana" with a combination of Folk, Impressionism, Shabby Chic, cartoon, whimsical, a hint of Primitive are the "spicy" styles that add "Pop" to my shop.

Commissions are greatly accepted.

About

Mary C. Aikens - Autobiography of An Artist

Since childhood, Mary still loves to draw, doodle, and paint that she studied both art and drafting. She earned both Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design and an Associate’s degree in Drafting and Design Technology. As an architectural drafter, Mary loves to draft floor plans as well as elevations and graphics with the use of lettering while making signs either by hand or small hand-held machinery. Mary remembers that there were several people in her life, including her father, who "sparked" this inspiration for her to do drafting, relief carving, art, and not to forget sign-making. When you visit Mary C. Aikens, 1 Art Lady's wall, you can see her plaques and carvings in various categories that include a combination of folk, Americana, and impressionistic styles. Many of her signs and plaques combine wood relief and/or sculpture along with lettering to create a unique artistic type of signs and reliefs…
Mary prefers to use this statement: "Use what you have, and work with it" which the majority of her signs and/or relief carvings consist of wood - bought, found, and given. She is still willing to work and "experiment" with many wood-related materials. She is discontinuing the use of hardy-plank samples ("re-purposed from retirement") and other different types of materials so her shop can be "all-wood". Her favorite type of wood is Eastern white pine since it is easiest to work with - especially carving.

Her subjects are considered as "Family Friendly" due to her relationship with Jesus Christ. "In God We Trust" - "God is OUR source of Life. HE is the way, the Truth and the Life, no man shall come to God, but through Jesus Christ alone."

Please feel free to browse Mary's Etsy wall and see her various signs. Commission art accepted. All of her signs are made in a "Smoke Free" and "Pet Free" environment. Please note that Mary solely runs her Etsy shop on a freelance basis with hopes that her art and graphic studio will blossom to a full-time business.
