I loved working with Raina on this custom project. I found her shop almost 2 years ago and knew I wanted her to create something special for my twin sons' bar mitzvah! As the date finally got closer I asked Raina to create a painting of israel. I plan to use a digital image as save the date cards and the actual painting as a sign in board at the event. Raina was so accommodating and sent me several color combinations and sketch samples as the work progressed. I would recommend her to anyone looking for unique and colorful artwork!!!!

Bringing Color Into Monuments
As an undergraduate student seven years ago, I was inspired by my design theory class to paint Beaumont Tower at Michigan State University. All my friends loved it. I developed a style where I could paint unique monuments and sculptures using bright colors and from there, tried painting a couple other notable Michigan icons. After my third painting, I frequently received requests from family and friends for a painting of their own. While I was still a student, in both undergrad and graduate school, I used painting as a hobby to relax when I needed a break from studying.
After I finished my schooling, I found myself with more time to explore my craft. I tried new subjects and fulfilled requests. The more I painted, the more I loved what I created. From there, I was encouraged to set up my own etsy site and to create the first print copies of my work. I took a major plunge when I applied to sell my art at a local store -- needless to say I was surprised when they said yes!
I like keeping my art affordable, making it easier for anyone to access my work. I love using bright, unique colors with monumental architecture. Architecture is so much of who I am, I want to emphasize the magnificent icons that define a place.
I eat, sleep, and breathe art and architecture. In my 9 to 5 job, I work as an architectural historian where I research historic buildings. I use painting as a way to express my love of art, color, and architecture.
