Hey everybody, Merry Christmas! Today we're featuring the art of DAKRI Sinclair. It's her first post as a Creative Team member and I know you are going to love what she's created.
DAKRI specializes in hand-painted gifts that include piggy banks, wall plaques, Easter baskets, and Christmas ornaments...lots of Christmas ornaments. At this time of year, she literally hand-paints and personalizes 1000's of ornaments. She's internationally known, her work has been featured in publications and department stores like Neiman Marcus, Macy's, Carson Pririe Scot and others...she is a powerhouse and a true inspiration for anyone who aspires to turn their art into a career.
This Christmas season, DAKRI has received requests for personalized frames...and she's been using my 11"x14" Mixed Media Photo Frames. The frames are perfect for her art, the board itself is a high density, archival quality board, it doesn't warp with wet media, and the front surface is covered with watercolor paper.
Today DAKRI is sharing frames that were created as personalized gifts for grandparents. Each frame has the name of all the grandparent's grandchildren and the frame has a pre-cut beveled 4x6 cut out that will hold a photo of all of the kids! It's a wonderful gift that is really personal.
DAKRI is known for her whimsical illustrative style...these frames are just too cute! She uses inks, pens, and a water brush to create her distinctive look. The ultra amooth surface of the Mixed Media Frame is perfect for her art!
I would love to see the look on the faces of the grandparents when they open these on Christmas day! If you'd like to see more of DAKRI's work, please visit her Facebook gallery...I think once you see her art you're going to be a fan too! Leave a comment below as I am sure DAKRI would love to hear what you think.
Thank you for stopping by today and I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!
