Train Case Cards are handmade, one-of-a-kind Art Cards. Inspired by a navy blue and green tartan Train Case passed down to me by my Irish Great Grandmother, Norma Sweeney. Grandma Sweeney lived as a dairy farmer's wife and loved to correspond. She had spectacular penmanship. From college into adulthood I exchanged cards and letters with her via the United States Postal Service. As she grew older, and her eyesight began to degenerate, I started to use thick brushestrokes of acrylic paint so she could feel the images on the cards I sent her.
Norma Atkins Sweeney passed away in 2013 at the age of 101. These cards are my way of continuing her legacy in the art of correspondence. To be notified when a new collection is released click below:
