- the story
This Americana Life
From her studio in Upstate New York's Shawagunk Mountains, Christine Schukow encapsulates the Falls' nostalgic nod to a bygone era in a three-dimensional, meticulously-crafted miniature diorama featuring a 50's era couple marveling at the Falls' majestic power. The romantic vignette is mounted on beautiful cream matting, framed, and hand-signed by the artist, ready to adorn the wall of anyone longing to capture a memory that is about so much more than a place on the map. Handmade in New York.

- the maker
Christine has been working as an artist all of her adult life, beginning with the designing of silk-screened clothing, then jewelry design and for the past 18 years in the creation of these wonderful framed dioramas. As people view her work a smile usually appears on their face as feelings of nostalgia and a yearning for the simpler things in life overcome them. Images of a sunny day at the beach, a country carnival, a drive-in movie, grandmas cottage in autumn, camping out, a honeymoon at Niagara Falls or a bicycle ride in the countryside. All these images and so many more portray her inner self, expressed in her art. Christine’s hope is that you also will take moments in this busy world to reflect on and enjoy the simpler things in life. collection
