For the places where laughter, framed memories, worn jeans, dents, and scratches live, and the people behind the windows and doors that make it a home. Our humble houses provide us with deep roots and connect us to the past and the future — the people that occupied it before us and the patter of paw prints and chatter of children that will fill it after our departure — offering us slivers of faith in the journey and peace in what is yet unseen.
These illustrations commemorate all of the quirks, beauty, and memories of your abode — so that no matter which roads you travel down, you will always make your way back to the feeling of “home” it offers. These custom prints are a wonderful way to celebrate a move, the selling of a home (or second home), the moving into a new abode, or the everyday moments that rest in your current house.
I would love more than anything to tell a little part of you and your home’s story!
HOW TO ORDER
- Purchase the illustration from this page to secure a slot!
- Once the transaction has gone through, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org containing photos of your home (preferably one straight-on shot) that are clear enough to show the small details if you can, but the best you have is perfect. Plus, include any other details/customizations you’d like me to make note of!
- After 7-10 business days after your initial contact with me, I will email you a digital version of the illustration so you can make sure everything looks perfect before I send you its physical counterpart!
- Once you approve your artwork, you will receive a confirmation that it has been shipped with your tracking number, that it has been delivered curbside to your home, or is ready for pickup depending on what option you choose at checkout.
- Please note that if you choose to frame your piece, it will take an additional 7 days after your digital portrait is sent before I am able to send it to you to allow time for my local framers to frame the artwork (more details below)!
Custom "Homebody" Illustration
To offer professional framing, I partner with a local framer in Hamilton, ON that supports artists in the community by making hand-crafted, quality wooden frames at a discounted price. These frames are Canadian-made wood, come with a lightly textured, acid-free archival matte, and can be hung either vertically or horizontally to accommodate any 8 x 10 artwork! To complement a variety of different home styles and illustrations, frames are offered in three colours: oat (a beautiful warm wood), poppyseed (a soft black), and earl grey latte (a cooler-toned, soft brown), which you are able to see in the product photos to the left. If you need colour recommendations, I’m happy to chat!
While regular glass and museum glass frames (anti-glare glass with higher clarity and UV protection) are available for local delivery and pickup only, you are able to upgrade to an acrylic glazing alternative if you’d like to have your artwork shipped so it won’t break in the post!
Adding a frame to your custom artwork is a perfect way to ensure it is a keepsake item for years to come, especially if you’re gifting an illustration for a housewarming, birthday, big move, or special occasion, or are looking for a forever reminder of the memories made in your own home.
