In Memory Of...

Sometimes I have clients that reach out to make special requests after one of the most difficult times in their lives. Here are some of the “In Memory Of” commissions that I have been asked to do

“I first found out about Shawna’s work during a community event. Her specialty is birds and sparrows are very important to my family as they symbolize the faith my sweet sister had during her fight with cancer that she unfortunately lost. She had a special verse that is also dear to our family. I asked Shawna if she would be willing to paint for us a picture of a sparrow and include the verse. She went above and beyond, using so many beautiful reminders of my Kate. I am so thankful for her dedication and kindness. It meant the world to our family.”

The featured painting is in honor of 8 year old Julianna Sayler who fought DIPG brain cancer. Julianna reminded all she loved that “Jesus Has Me”. The golden bird symbolized pediatric cancer and that Jesus holds us in the palm of His hand. Tags and prints are available 100% proceeds go back to these children

“Shawna has been such a gift to our family. We started The Julianna Sayler Foundation in honor of my eight year old niece who passed away from DIPG brain cancer. Shawna’s kindness and generosity has brought so much hope and comfort to our family and many others. She uses her artistic gift to praise God and always point others to Him. Shawna was so amazing to work with when she created a one of a kind image for our foundations “Pasta with a Purpose” annual spaghetti dinner fundraiser. She took our ideas and made the most beautiful perfect image that we will use for years to come. She also painted the “Jesus Has Me” image of Gods hands holding a golden bird. It was a phrase our Julianna always said and captures her faith and hope of heaven. Shawna has so generously donated her time and gifts and we are so eternally thankful.”

Mrs. Blabey raised ten sons, one daughter, and three grandchildren. Not only did she touch the lives of her children and grandchildren she was an aunty and grandmother to every child that she came in contact with in including me. I’m personally looking forward to the big “family” reunion in heaven.

In Memory of Alma Blabey. Commissioned by her Granddaughter, Tina.

Steven and Jean enjoyed many long hours bird watching. Jeans favorite bird was the pileated woodpecker.
