How often do we find ourselves racking our brains about what to buy someone as a gift? Gift cards can be so impersonal and when it’s someone special in your life, you want to show them that you really care. Enter your savior: local artist, Marni Butchoski.
Art by Marni B is known for her hand painted Long Island Sea Shells with designs ranging from “Best Teacher Ever” to holiday designs to custom photo shells! If you can dream it, she can put it on a shell. These hand painted shells make for great gifts for anyone in your life including co workers, friends, and teachers!
If you’re like me and love giving a gift that really pulls on the heart strings, order a custom photo shell. Marni can take your photo and apply it to a shell and then paints the background to capture the moment. These are perfect for weddings, proposals, family, lost loved ones, and create a memory they can see everyday.
In addition to painting shells, Marni also teaches classes where you learn to paint your own shells! She collaborates with local businesses like Nest on Main Marketplace and Roomers Gifts to create a fun night of DIY! She supplies all the materials and walks you through each step. She even offers at home classes for girls night or kids birthdays! Make sure to think of her for your next event!
