Artist’s Corner

Personal Touch

Each MVPMemories.com Artist’s Canvas wrap receives a personal touch from an accomplished artist. We start with your image, digitally printed on canvas, and hand apply an embellished top coat to create brush strokes and texture, converting your photo into an original work of art.

Feature Artist – Suzanne Ley

Suzanne LeySuzanne Ley grew up in Minnesota and North Dakota, eventually leaving the cold climate to obtain a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting and drawing from Arizona State University. Since then she has lived in Minneapolis, Houston, Chicago, Rochester New York and now Dayton, Ohio. She says that living in such diverse places has given her a greater appreciation of open spaces and the intensity of light and shadow as well as a love for saturated color. Her artistic career began as a college art instructor and then evolved into art direction and graphic design before finally painting full time. The combination of commission work and general submissions to juried shows has kept her busy. Recognition includes awards from Dayton Visual Arts Center, Middletown Regional Arts Exhibits, Miamisburg Juried Arts Exhibits, and The Houston Advertising Club. Her work is in private collections in Madrid, Spain, Washington D.C., Colorado Springs, Colorado, Phoenix, Arizona and Dayton, Ohio. Collaborative pieces are in the collection of Children’s Hospital of Dayton and Springboro, Ohio.
