It was William S Burroughs who suggested that: “The aim of education is the knowledge, not of facts, but of values”. If you have a child who is about to graduate, or the sibling of a relative or dear friend who is about to move on from their schools, colleges or universities, you will surely want to mark this transition point in their life in a way that is both personal and memorable.

Of course, as actress and comedian Carol Burnett said: “We don’t stop going to school when we graduate”. It does, however, mark one of life’s key transition points. With a personalized piece of Canadian art from celebrated artist David Crighton as an enduring gift, the person in your thoughts will fondly remember that pivotal moment as they forge ahead with their lives, in whichever direction this might take them.

All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother

How to deliver a truly meaningful well done, thank you, congratulations, or farewell!

  As zoologist Wynetka Ann Reynolds once said: “Anyone who says you can't see a thought simply doesn't know art”. This is equally true when you are seeking out that special gift for an upcoming anniversary, birthday, wedding, housewarming party, or Christmas. Too many folk also seem to rely on transient gifts, such as a dinner event that makes an immediate impact, which then fades as quickly as the taste of the meal. However, if you want to say something special when providing a gift, a p...
