Ordinary Artifacts are commissioned illustrations for the sentimental and the minimalist.
Transform your sentimental clutter into meaningful artwork. Or purchase a gift card for your favorite Pack Rat.
I started creating these illustrations because I’m a wannabe minimalist with a strong hoarding tendency. I decided that if I could take meaningful objects and transform them into art, I would enjoy them in a new way. I’ve found that through this simple practice of moving object to paper I can honor loved ones (family heirlooms), document milestones (baby things), and preserve things with a new perspective.
A complete FAQ about the process is available here.
Each custom illustration is based on an image you share with me. I’ve teamed up with Framebridge to provide you with a high quality print of your object, matted and delivered in a black or white frame (your choice).
All illustrations are approximately 5 x 7’’ (with frame, 11.5" x 13.5"), full color, created with traditional and digital illustration techniques.
Gift Cards are also available if you know a highly sentimental person, but aren't sure which object they would love most. Choose an option below to start your order.
