Laser Cutting

As a general practice, I always create my work by hand using a knife or scissors. But a couple months ago I was asked for permission to use one of my designs for a wedding invitation. How cool! The bride found my website and liked one of my leluje designs with two birds standing over two baby birds in a nest. She wanted to use the design for her laser-cut invitations. I was intrigued! I quickly drew up a license agreement, received a small payment, and that was that. image2

I was delighted to get an envelope in the mail yesterday from the company that produced the invitations, LaserCreative.ca. Inside was the finished product. It turned out great, don’t you think?

Special thanks to Eva, Director at LaserCreative, for being wonderful to work with. And congratulations to the bride!

A Recent Commission

I was recently asked to create something as a gift for a new baby girl’s room. Knowing who the new mother was made it an especially fun and special project. Here are a few photos of the process and final piece!

What Can I Do For You?

I was looking back at few commissions I did last year. Each are a little different. I created a robin “bird sketch” for a woman to give as a gift to her friend. Another is a sturgeon fish created for a family of the same name. A more traditional “tree of life” was created for a family of six, with four cheerful birds in a tree with a hen and rooster looking on. Commissions are fun to do but can also be a little scary as you always hope it will turn out to everyone’s liking.
