Flawesome (or Flawsome) describes an individual who embraces their flaws and knows they are awesome anyway.

I think this saying is a riot, and it is my most popular piece, so I guess others do too! 

The piece "Flawsome" (without an "E" in the middle) sold, but I can make a similar piece.  Email me at to request a commission. The "FlawEsome" piece (with the "E" in the middle) is in stock.

Delivery is free to the Charlotte area.

Here's the story of how this piece was created:

  • It started with a layer of gesso (like primer) on 4 x 12 x .75" inch birchwood cradleboard.
  • Then I used chalk pastels to color an old sewing pattern.
  • I pasted the pattern on the board using matte medium.
  • I added stamps with ink and used stencils with acrylic paint to create an interesting background.
  • I created the letters, FLAWESOME, using Photoshop. Each letter is a flower. 
  • The dictionary pages are the definitions for “flaw” and “awesome.”
  • The postmark and stamp are a copy from a letter I used in another piece. That letter was from 1928 as the postmark indicates. 
  • After pasting the pieces in place with matte medium, I outlined all of the pieces with charcoal pencil, then shaded the lines.
  • Lastly, I finished the piece with spray varnish.
