Another amazing artist is Tracy Kendall. Tracy is a London based wallpaper designer who specializes in using found objects. I just love her style.
I'd like use several of these "airheads" above and frame them individually.
I've always loved Nate Berkus and his style. He is someone who's art totally reflects him. His God Bless America piece was created by a Spanish artist. He mentioned somewhere that he loved having it displayed prominently because it reminds him of how important it is to be a citizen of the world.

Nate took vintage handwriting samples , blew them up and framed them (see them in green on the back wall), so simple and so beautiful.
I did the same thing a few years back. I found a letter at Brimfield from the early 1800's, it was written by a brother to his two sisters. The handwriting is gorgeous but the content of the letter make me cry when I read it. He talks about missing them dearly and being sad about not being able to visit during the beautiful New England fall. I brought the letter to my local print shop and was able to enlarge the pages and frame it. I think I'll experiment on a much bigger scale.
This gorgeous home in Country Living Magazine has this amazing grid of framed specimens. I love the look and the repetition is brilliant. Well, now that I know what speaks to me, I need to start looking at making a purchase or maybe I'll add this to my
Christmas list for next year might , but wait, Valentines day is just around the corner.
All my best, kelly
