This is a post from my other blog, Gente di Mare Italian Genealogy that I thought worth repeating here.
Last fall while attending the First Annual Festa dei Nonni in Windsor Ontario, sponsored by the Italian Genealogy and Heraldry Society of Canada, I was fortunate enough to meet with a very special and amazing artist, Kathryn Rutherford from Heirloom Art Studio. Kathryn has not only received several awards for her outstanding work but has restored many family portraits over the years. She showcased some of her work at the Festa last Fall and I was amazed with her award winning SPIRIT PAINTINGS in which she adds the spirits of her great grandparents into her portraits.
Kathryn’s studio is located at 2616 Wears Valley Rd, Sevierville, TN. You can also view her blog at Fine Artist at Heirloom Art Studio for updates on her latest works.
