Colleen Lin heard a quote one day that perfectly encapsulated her work: "The work you do while you procrastinate is probably the work you should be doing for the rest of your life" ~ Jessica Hische For her, that's drawing and making beautiful things. She has always drawn and painted, "In junior high I even made a green papier-mâché dragon the size of the dining table (my mother was very patient with me)." Her inspirations are many and varied: photos, movies, songs — her desire is to take that inspiration to make something beautiful that spreads joy. Color is a key element as well, "I'm very attracted to color, and the way colors play together and what they communicate. I almost always choose bright, strong, cheerful colors: I think it's best to put back into the world what you want out of it!"
Your child is unique on an elemental level, and worth his or her weight in gold. Now you can proudly demonstrate that scientific fact with this clever piece of custom wall art. Designer Colleen Lin creates a personalized panel from the Periodic Table of Elements just for your child, using his or her name with an element-style, two-letter abbreviation. The element's number, atomic weight, crystal structure and other physical details are based on—what else!—pure gold. The custom image is printed on archival matte paper with premium inks designed to remain brilliant for an entire lifetime. Made in Dallas, Texas.
