A dozen years ago, my artwork was highlighted in the Travel Channel’s show “Passport to Design” featuring a facelift of this historic home on Nicollet Island. The home is now up for sale, and the owner says the hardest thing to leave is the custom artwork throughout. So , I decided to reminisce and share the wonderful elements created for this world traveler:

I love people who love art, and my recent client is certainly one who loves unique art! It all started with a special design to be painted on a precious end table. When I was invited to her home, I noticed all her wonderful unique art, especially her large free-standing horse sculpture on wheels made of wood and metal that she acquired while living in CA (behind the hand painted table). photo #1
Then on Halloween, her beautiful cat decided to jump on for a ride, tipping it, braking the sculpture in two. Not being able to repair, and wanting to immortalize her artwork in some way, she thought of her “Untapped Resource” and gave me a call.
With the cat supervising, we began to create a mural on the wall. photo #2 – #3. When finished we re-attached the saved metal pieces, and the result was a real success! photo #4 Subscribe to my website – SherylVanderpol.com and like my Untapped Resource Facebook page, for more inspiration monthly. 763-542-1116
A whimsical play area was created from this unused under-the-stairway space. Colorful hand-painting was a real asset for this TJB home. Perfect space to play and store toys – out of sight!
