This quote inspired us
to think about how
art can outlive its creator.
“All passes, Art alone
Enduring stays to us;
The Bust out-lasts the throne,
The coin, Tiberius.
– Henry Austin Dobson

It may not be reproduced in any form without written permission from the artist.
Maggie has been creating art for over 50 years, and as a full-time professional artist since 1981. We create art that endures in its charm and detail. We serve locally and globally, with an emphasis on families.
Each design by Maggie LaNoue takes dozens of hours, sometimes hundreds of hours. Art in all its forms runs through our family, and we have created art for other family businesses or organizations that serve families. Another theme we have created art over the years is depicting revitalization.
Even without the copyright symbol, artists are protected from their works being reproduced. Still, the copyright symbol adds the full power of the United States government to protect those who create new works from others taking them to reprint without written permission from the artist.
