I ordered this as a surprise gift for my husband (who is British) for Christmas, so he hasn't seen it yet. However I received the package and it is beautiful! After placing the order, Karen emailed me right away so we could start the design. I gave her some ideas and sent her some photos to work from. In about a day, she had a sketch for me so I could visualize the final product. Pretty quickly (a day or so later), she sent me a picture of the final product. It was shipped and I received it less than a week later. Karen is wonderful to work with - she is very detail-oriented and that is reflected in every step from the design to sketch to the final product and the shipping (wrapped and well protected). I can't wait to give it to my husband on Christmas morning! This will be a keepsake for our family forever!

This piece was meant to be lightweight yet artistic. I have sold many versions of this chalkboard to happy customers. My work is a mix of art and function. To each his own, art can be very subjective. it is meant to be fun and whimsical yet functional. I sell hundreds of chalkboards all over Canada and the U.S.

Compelled to Create

I started my Artistic Environments Company in 1993 being a Specialty Paint (faux finish) and Mural Artist... After the Faux Finishing market went completely soft, I was driven to use some of my specialty paint finish ideas in my art works. I love to create, then paint cut-outs, crackle finishes, sculpted borders, fun textures on my works of art .
Many of my art works have that 3-d touch to them. Papers, color, texture, sculpted, crackled.. I also use a number of different substrates -styrene, gator board, wood, sintra to create my fun works of art. I like to call them "More than a Painting." I also like to create different characters, whether it is painting Vlad the Impaler, My Glamor Girls or some Beautiful Nature Natives.
My chalkboards are completely Unique! A combination of function and art. Fun textured borders with colorful impressionistic art.
There is something for everyone in my shop!

First and Foremost "THANK YOU" to all that have purchased from me! I genuinely love to create my art work.. Most of my works are Originals ..but I do like to do little art prints as collectibles.. although they are not the originals.. I like to keep the price down to make them affordable and hopefully collectible for anyone! I am very versatile and love to experiment in all mediums.. Next time.. instead of sending that "catalog gift" send someone you love a little bit of art&soul!!
