Just what is a Lifescape?

Please click on illustration to enlarge.


Watercolor Word Journeys

Lifescapes are a combination of whimsical watercolor and written documentation of a person's life, a special occasion or a memorable event.

In preparing a commissioned Lifescape I will seek personal and useful information regarding the recipient through a series of questions and interviews.

From a collection of carefully selected questions, I will create a pictorial biography. You decide on the occasion and fill out a questionnaire. When completed we will review the material via phone, email or a personal visit. At that time, I can gather additional information for your Lifescape.

Typically your Lifescape will be completed within a week or two. However, this may vary depending on the time of year and other works in progress.

Simple matting and black framing are included in the price of your Lifescape, making it ready to give when it arrives.

The most requested sizes are:

11" x 14"~ Finished size- matted and framed~ 16" x 20"

8" x 10" ~ Finished size- matted and framed~ 11" x 14"

~Other sizes available~

You will receive the original watercolor, while prints may be added to your order for additional gifts.

~Prices upon request~

I will be posting small sections of Lifescapes that I am currently working on. To protect the personal information of my clients I cannot post the entire Lifescape.

All images are protected by federal copyright laws. No copies or reproductions are permitted without my permission. So please ask~ chances are I would be thrilled to share.

  10. Hello Debra, thank you for visiting & your lovely comments. I had not heard of life scapes before, but think they are a wonderful idea. *ruthie*

  11. OK....this is why...I was not blogging then, BUT...if you can, you should put this somewhere for everyone to see. Would you mind if I did a post on these????

    Jeanne :)

  12. I really love your work...I have never seen anything like that. I mean, I probably came across this type of visual art but I never thought this could be applied to make a "biography" or a memory of an important event. What a great idea! You have such a lovely gift in your hands, I am so glad you share it with us. Ciao from Verona xxx

  13. Just found your work through a "Collage of Life". I am very impressed and love all that you are doing! Thank you!

  14. I left you a comment in your :Collage of Life" blog. I would have my Lifscape centered around growth.
