Truly unique decorative blackboards each hand-crafted in birch plywood using Karla's original artwork sealed to form a durable surface for years of use. Perfect for the kitchen, family room and mudroom. Blackboard art.
Was there life before blackboards? Yes! Karla Bove lived in St. Maarten, St. Barts and Anguilla for 12 years creating fanciful colorful Caribbean paintings. She painted bustling harbors, West Indian architecture, delightful markets and vibrant scenes - all carefully executed with incredible attention to detail. Her work has been sold to collectors worldwide. The reaction to her painting has always been joy and happiness.
So what's the deal on the Blackboards. After leaving the Caribbean Karla moved to the quaint but chilly village of Warren Vermont. She still wanted to paint, but the tropical inspiration had vanished so she started painting her other passion; FOOD! (Karla comes from a long line of eager eaters.) Somehow, Karla's preoccupation with food got coupled with her avid list making and she created her first blackboard. Karla knew she was on to something good and went to work creating more - and more - and now has over 50 designs. Sometimes just deciding which one to take home poses a problem (in these cases we highly recommend multiple purchases!)
"They are so cute but my kitchen is too small" (A frequently heard comment)...
Stop whining! Karla has 6 small blackboards which are only 12" wide. If your kitchen is smaller than that, she suggests you don't need a blackboard, what you need is a contractor.
"Do they make good presents?" Boy do they ever! They are so unique, most people have never seen anything like them. They make good house-warming, shower, wedding, Christmas, Chanukah and birthday presents. Lots of people buy them again and again for gifts, and the good news is they can be shipped directly to the lucky recipient.
"What if I don't see one that's just right?"
Well, in that case we suspect you are mighty picky (just a hunch). Ask Karla to design a new board with your particular space, theme, and color in mind. Your custom board will charge you an arm and a leg (just kidding) but will definitely be worth it!
