Parrot Party Pick

Parrot Party Pick

Because the studio loves to draw, paint, cut, and color; we think party picks are a ton of fun to create and use. What for you may ask? Centerpieces, of course! Take a look at our parrot we made for the Scottdale Area Chamber of Commerce’s “Cheeseburger in Paradise” fund raising event. We have a few left-over so if you would like to purchase one or some, please check them out in our store.

Making Business Supplies

Making Business Supplies

SMH has been busy creating necessary business supplies such as return address labels. What is cool is that we can be artistic and not stick to the “usual” 1.75″ x 0.5″ rectangle. With our creativity we can make a return address label be what ever we want it to, even a whimsical formation. Take a look at our new signature “button” also. We love placing these on the backside of our envelopes to “help” close them!

“By Wisdom a House is Built” Painting

"By Wisdom a House is Built" Painting

Proverbs 24:3 says, “By wisdom a house is built and through understanding it is established. By knowledge the rooms are filled with precious and pleasant riches.” The studio finds this saying appropriate for newly weds and thus was given as a gift to a special bride and groom on their wedding day. Would you like your own printed version? You may do so simply by clicking here. Please keep in mind, as will all of our artwork, it can be produced as posters, greetings cards, or scrapbook paper. Simply send us an email and let us know what size and medium you

Hand Painted Wallpaper

Hand Painted Wallpaper

The Studio had the privilege of hand painting wallpaper for a very special room. Each stripe was ragged and then the floral arrangements added. The “cool beans” of the project is that no stripe in the entire room is identical. Every bouquet was painted differently to give it a whimsical flare. The goal of the project was to create “wallpaper” that matched the piece of material across the bed. The owner of the room was thrilled!

Veteran’s Memorial Park Coming to Scottdale, PA

Veteran's Memorial Park Coming to Scottdale, PA

  The Tottie Kiefer Walkway in downtown Scottdale, PA is soon to have an addition – a Memorial to our local veterans. Needless to say, SMH was elated when asked to illustrate the idea for the future park. The first view is without the flowering trees so that folks can see what will lie behind them once they are planted. These drawings are done in what is called a vector graphic, or drawn mathematically on a computer. We have a hand painted version that will be posted soon. If anyone in Scottdale, PA is interested in having a veteran listed on the wall,
