Welcome to Michelle Masters' wonderful, unique topiary themed gifts for the home, gardener, and animal lover!  A unique blend of whimsy and elegance, Michelle's collections incorporate watercolor depictions of topiaryliving sculpture shaped by careful pruning into a broad range of decorative items. Living in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York, artist Michelle Masters' love of gardening and growing things found their way to paper through her fun topiary creations. She finds richness in the details and desires to translate that sense of quality in all that she creates.

Michelle
received and MFA in computer graphic design from Rochester Institute of Technology in 1993. Her fine art has been shown in state and national exhibitions. She has a sweetie named Olie (shown here) who is a Golden Retriever-Black Lab Mix. Since our first Golden was an Ollie as well (both dogs with the formal name of Oliver, of course!), you can well imagine that our getting together was meant to be. This is definitely the place to find a sweet little birthday, holiday or thank-you gift. Presentation is always important and in that regard, the creative packaging of Michelle's products is simply wonderful. The array of products includes . . . . 

Limited Edition Fringed Pillows These Hand-printed Pillows are truly the perfect gifts as they can bring such fun and whimsy to provide cheer. And, with Michelle's signature ribbon embellished card, the presentation is simply perfect. The pillow here features her Shear Bliss design. Who says a dog wouldn't enjoy a couch made from a topiary hedge? It surely would be bliss to stretch out on a sofa in the garden for the afternoon.

The pillows available are rectangular (15 inches x 10 inches) or square (16 inches) depending on the selected design. They
are hand-printed, numbered and signed by the artist in limited editions of 150. Each pillow is made in the USA of portrait-quality natural cotton canvas with a polyfil insert. Zippered enclosure. Pillows are made to order so please allow 4 to 6 weeks for delivery.

Limited Edition Matted Prints Artist signed and dated, these quality prints feature archival quality inks and fine art paper. Each print is made using the finest materials available to assure long lasting beauty.

Michelle Master Limited Edition Prints are available in 5 x 7, 8 x 10 and 16 x 20 sizes. They come with acid free matting and backing, and are enclosed in a cello sleeve for protection. Framing is also available

Linen Lavender Sachets Treat guests to charming 100% Irish Linen Hemstitched Lavender Sachets. The 6 x 6 sachets are filled with aromatic French lavender buds and hand printed by the artist with your favorite selected topiary design.

The topiary designs are vibrant, detailed, and permanent. Cold delicate wash is recommended for these Fine Irish Linens. What a wonderful gift for a special friend or to treat yourself.
