I've known Donovan for a few years now, his sister Ellen and brother-in-law Phil are some of our closest friends. So when it came time to find a first anniversary present for his wife Elizabeth, I felt so honored when he asked me to create a piece of artwork to commemorate their wedding day.
Don wanted to capture the romance of Paris, where they were engaged while paying homage to Liberty State Park where the wedding took place. I instantly knew including the Statue of Liberty and The Eiffel Tower would be key elements of the design to come. After emailing me his text, both their wedding vows and pledges, I got to work.
I absolutely loved how the piece ended up coming together so seamlessly. It was a gift with so much love and thought put into it. And I'm excited to hear that Elizabeth loved the final result.
