Our New Sign: The Backstory
It seems every time I ask my friend Shana to recommend someone to help me with a creative endeavor for Brushstrokes, the answer is always the same: ”Marina Luz." When I needed someone to teach hand-lettering workshops at Brushstrokes, Shana of course reminded me to get in touch with Marina. So we met eachother and I was enchanted with this Stanford-educated, Emmy-award-winning illustrator. She taught a series of relaxing, inspiring hand-lettering workshops at Brushstrokes and next we asked her to hand-paint a new sign for us. She designed and painted this lovely blade sign: a white rice bowl with a feather pattern, gold paint brushes and a shingle with a new, clean font for Brushstrokes.
We’re updating our look at Brushstrokes to bring a fresh, modern sensibility to our beautiful studio. Marina’s sign is one expression of that. At her suggestion, we also repainted our bright green walls a soft charcoal blue to accentuate the shapes of the white pottery we sell. We hope that when you come to our studio, you will be inspired
