September Design Inspiration

Hope you have enjoyed your summer ~  

Art and accessories put the "finishing touches" on each design project created by Magnolia Design Studios. Working closely with the artist and client to develop these works of art is an extremely gratifying process.

This month I want to share with you a recent installation of works by Maryland Artist Sandi Wilson.  This series of six "Biopaintings" are of the history of John Baptist de La Salle and St. John's College High School in Washington DC.  The panels encapsulate their history dating back to the 1600's through today. The art was created in collaboration with the client, designer and artist by taking images, phrases, dates and mixed media to tell the story. The "encaustic" process includes wax, acrylic paints, mixed media on wood.

Both residential and commercial applications apply to this unique art form ~

What about your history?  If you would like to learn more, or have a custom "Biopainting" created for you, please contact us ~
