Heirloom Artists - Calligraphy & Illumination
From the drawing boards of
Holly Monroe and Clifford Mansley, Sr.
Our shopping cart is a work in progress,
Come back again to see our updates!
Way back in the day, my folks, Cliff (calligrapher) and Jean (fine artist)
met in Philadelphia and established our family business, Heirloom Artists.
I, Holly, grew up with drawing lessons from Mom and calligraphy lessons from Dad.
Early on, I never thought that I would design & letter as a full time business,
but here I am.
Freelance calligrapher in Cincinnati, Ohio working long distance with my father
Cliff in Lake Oswego, Oregon, who is still going strong with his commissions!
He claims the title "Classic Calligrapher."
Holly keeps one hand in traditional design and the other in contemporary.
DESIGNS IN OUR ONLINE SHOP
are reproduced in the following ways:
Entrada Fine Art Paper
Five Sizes Available - 13x19, 11x17, 8.5x11, 5x7 and 4x6
Epson UltraChrome K3 Inks
Holly oversee's the fine art printing, so you can refer questions to her.
SOME OF CLIFF'S CLASSIC DESIGNS
have been reproduced in one size with gold foil,
which beautifully emulates gold leaf.
QUANTITY DISCOUNTS ARE AVAILABLE
Holly has worked with a number of publishers over the years,
so you will find greeting cards and gift products from companies such as
DaySpring Cards, Leanin' Tree, DesignDesign, Abbey Press and others.
Some of our designs have been framed in quantity to keep the price affordable for you.
Other designs we felt needed a Custom Frame. We often offer it in one size,
but you are welcome to order the reproduction in any size
and then CONTACT us to custom frame it for you.
We will send digital pictures of mat/frame options with pricing.
You choose, we frame and ship to you.
We can bill you outside of the webstore for this.
(Custom framing requires a little extra packing and postage for shipping).
WE ACCEPT CUSTOM COMMISSIONS
PLEASE LOOK AT THE "PORTFOLIO" ON OUR INDIVIDUAL WEBSITES
to see additional designs that we may not sell in our SHOP.
We work with specialty artist materials such as fine art and handmade papers,
genuine calfskin and 23k gold leaf, watercolor, gouache and other art mediums.
Holly has begun lettering/painting on walls, as well.
To feed the soul by making meaningful words beautiful
