What are Namesakes?
Namesakes came from my love of drawing and the enjoyment I got from sharing my art with others. I would take someones name, listen to their interests, and let my creativity flow. What came out of it was a unique piece, as unique as the individual it was gifted to. Over the years I have made hundreds of Pen & Ink Namesakes and also use my Burniture technique to burn names and art into unfinished wood surfaces.
I hope you enjoy the gallery of Namesakes and I look forward to making a Namesake for you!
