DESIGn process & fees

 

Custom Design is the foundation of DONA SCARVES

Designing with Purpose, Vision and Experience

We wanted to offer museums the opportunity to create wearable art that reinforces the experience of each unique institution. I personally work with each shop director to best understand their specific mission while drawing from all photographs presented, their design directive, online research and my background in architecture, interior design, graphic design and photography to insure a design outcome that meets and hopefully exceed all expectations. The better the images and communication, the better the final outcome.

WE DO CHARGE DESIGN FEES UNLESS YOU PROVIDE YOUR OWN ART WORK THAT IS TOTALLY PRINT READY. OUR FEES ARE VERY REASONABLE BUT WILL ENSURE THE BEST FINISHED OUTCOME. MOST EXPERIENCED SHOP DIRECTORS UNDERSTAND THIS ALREADY WE JUST WANT TO LET YOU KNOW UPFRONT SO THERE ARE NO SURPRISES. PLEASE REFER TO OR REQUEST OUR PRICE SHEET FOR MORE INFORMATION.

the cummer Museum - Joseph Rodefer de camp “the red kimono” painted 1919

Part of the Cummer Museum’s permanent collection is a painting by Joseph Rodefer de camp “the red kimono” painted 1919. I was simply fascinated with the image and thought it would be really interesting to take the window panes out of the picture and fill it in with the view of the cummer’s beautiful gardens and the st. john’s river. in the next gallery over is a vast collection of Meissen porcelain, I began to embellish the table and ledge in the painting with several colorful pieces from this collection. in the center of the scarf I positioned part of the flowers in the garden and on top of that I layered some of the beautiful fretwork from the ceiling of the cummer family’s tudor parlor room. This scarf has a lot going on but holds an interesting perspective of their collections, gardens and architecture. a big thanks to susan tudor for her support and direction.
