Welcome to Grateful Box Studios!

Psychedelic art for music lovers!

Located in Asheville, NC, Grateful Box Studios uses hand-cut paper to transform upcycled treasures into decoupage art, with designs ranging from quilt patterns to music themes.

I specialize in creating custom orders as unique gifts for all ages.

Featured Artwork




Upcycled wooden plate, 16" diameter, wall-hanging decoupage art, glazed with a triple thick acrylic coat. (Not to be used for consuming food!) Elements of the collage include images of petrified wood, butterfly, sunflowers, sunsets, a flock of birds on the outer rim, a photo of the desert from space on the inner rim, a lone dancing bear, and of course a groovy Grateful Dead photo circa '73 Keith and Donna with Jerry's big black beard. Available for purchase in Store.

"I create collage and decoupage art made entirely by hand with a good ol' fashioned pair of scissors. Using patterns from traditional quilts has given my collage work a definitive form and a link to a historical fine art 'craft,' one that has been championed by creative women."

From the Grateful Box Archive

"The pictures do not do it justice! The box is just beautiful! These are a must for every Deadhead's collection!"
