Every Pen Has A Story


The colorful 3-D art piece is a large wooden shaped pen, covered with many fun, creative, colorful, and unusual pens (animals, musical, feathers, characters, holiday pieces, etc.). A large collection from the US and abroad. The pen is secured on a wooden easel which measures 9 feet in height and 5 feet in width.. The easel is painted blue and there is a black ink well at the bottom. The mediums used are wood and paint. The title will be on the top left of the board. Each pen holds a wonderful memory of a person, a place traveled, or an experience. I used a different pen for each class period in my Marketing classes at GVSU for 27 years. The pens became my signature and quite the conversation piece. It was one of many ways I differentiated myself , my whimsical flair, and my personal teaching style. Students, family, and friends purchased pens for me through the years and thus, the collection grew. The art piece reflects the many relationships I have been blessed with.
