To truly send off the retiree with a gift that they will cherish, consider a small original painting by Lucy Manley, or Len Harfield. Alternatively a beautiful giclee print would be a great choice, and will allow you to obtain a larger piece for a lesser price. Stone sculpture would also be a great choice, we have several talented artists that work in this medium including Robert HudymaMax Sexsmith and Katherine Beatty
