Make the Story on Your Wall as Fascinating as The One at the
Dinner Table

For the history lover who wants to transport their guests to the tall tales of 1890, Lisa Edwards creates art that melds historic photos with today, that’ll bring your imagination (and conversations) to life.

Imagine the stories of those that came before us...

Let Your Walls Tell a Time-Bending Narrative

Captivate your guests (and your imagination), and never again lead with the weather.

Instead, you’ll gaze upon your walls and feel the echo of rhythmic shoes on cobbled streets…

…The man with his pasty-filled lunch pail, marching to The Original Mine for his 6 am shift. His last minutes of brightness before the cold, dark and damp of the next 12 hours underground.

And moments later, you’ll recognize the streets as today. Some things have changed, yes. But many have not.

Because the beating heart of the people and the places are the same.

Jumpstart Your Imagination, Wildly

Feel like you’re physically stepping into a place of the past, and sense a piece of each past patron. A soup with flavors of Ireland, England, China…Copper Kings, senators, miners, and madams.

Whether you’re nostalgic about the street scene where you grew up, the church where your grandparents were married, or just fancy feeling like you’re traveling through time in general, here’s what’s for certain:

You’ve come to a place where:

History, historic preservation, and the allure of time travel are not just adored, but celebrated. 

Imagination and daydreaming are known to be correlated with superior intelligence (not kidding, there is a study!)

Back to The Future, Outlander, and Einstein will all get cited as evidence that time travel is possible! (Yep, even Einstein talks about time travel!)

Get back your love affair with history.

While you gaze at the artwork, it feels like you’re part of someone else’s story. The story of someone who is long gone.

You are the continuation of a story that has been going on for hundreds of years…

…and there is an infinite amount of cause-and-effect that has brought you to this moment in time. 

Imagine the decisions and events that must have brought the past photo to the condition of what it is today.

Those same political, social, and environmental influences have affected the streets of a city, the people in a town, and who your ancestors (and you) became.

The streets reflect the same influences. Each building a time capsule of decisions

Profess Your Undying Love for History...without sounding boring

Ditch blank stares when telling a story of facts and dates.

Instead, point to your wall. Your guests will gasp at the realization that this is a scene they know, a place they love, and in two different time periods.

They’ll be mesmerized, asking – wow, what’s going on there? I didn’t know THAT used to exist.. “What happened to that building?” and “oh, remember when we were standing right there?”

Show your guests your point of view, without feeling like you’re on a soap box of why historic preservation matters. Instead, they’ll look at the phantom image layered with today, and instantly understand the concept of why keeping historic buildings around matters.

Your comments will only help fan their spark of curiosity into a fire.
