Mia's Biography

Mia has been painting since she was a young child following in the footsteps of her parents who were artists. She was educated at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1979. She paints in her home studio, combining paint, silk, paper and other found items to create layers of shapes and colors. The figure may act as the focal point of a painting or used as an interesting shape in the overall composition, often veiled in pattern.

 

Double sided frame option

We recently created a double-sided frame with a hinge as a unique way to display a magazine cover and it's related article.

Here it what appears to be just a cover page from the 1927 House and Garden magazine.

However, the frame opens up to reveal two ads featuring the Marmon E75 motor car. One ad is printed on the reverse side of the magazine cover, hence the need for a double sided solution.

Here is the frame opened on the wall. The frame closes with magnets and is secured to the wall with wooden security hangers so as not to move when opening.

A great addition to this antique Illinois license plate collection featuring the same license plate number from 1915 through 1963.
