I am often asked to hand draw a special poem or the lyrics of a song that has been composed for a special occasion. Sometimes the client will require a photo mount, where the words are displayed on one side of a frame and the photo is on the other. This is suitable for poems and readings that commemorate a life well lived, and can be a precious reminder of those who have gone before us.
I have also used this technique for wedding song lyrics. The happy couple usually pick a special song with meaningful lyrics for their first dance, and it is a personal and unique gift to give them a calligraphy print of these words, with a photo from the wedding evening included.
All of these pieces are designed and executed in consultation with the client, and are all ‘one off’ and individual works of art.
Here are a few samples of these special custom pieces.
