Kennedy Health—Where Heroes Abound—A 50th Anniversary Celebration to Remember!

By , June 29th, 2015

It was our great fortune to commemorate Kennedy Health’s 50th anniversary with One Of A Kind art AND to attend their celebration in Stratford, NJ. Collage items came to life as we met the people they represented. Perhaps most memorably, I was able to speak with Dr. David Condoluci. Previously I’d sent him, in appreciation, a poster of my Names Project Quilt artwork after learning how he’d treated AIDS patients since the 1980s. The compassion he conveyed—even 30 years later–about those challenging early days was moving. (more…)

By , June 5th, 2015

On this day in history, June 6, in 2002, the Wye Oak, the honorary state tree of Maryland, fell during a severe thunderstorm. It was believed to be over 460 years old and the largest White Oak in the United States. The remarkable tree measured 31 feet 10 inches around, 96 feet high, with branches spreading over 119 feet.

The state of Maryland collected the wood, and awarded it to a number of woodworkers and artists to commemorate the tree and its history. Artist Lawrence Romorini was one of the fortunate few to receive a branch from the tree. (more…)

By , April 3rd, 2015

Lawrence and I often collaborate by phone and email with our clients and have wonderful long-distance relationships all over the country to create One Of A Kind art. But  there’s nothing like meeting in person—either at client headquarters or at One Of A Kind. So it was especially exciting to welcome Jess and Lisa, who travelled from New Jersey  to our studio to review and edit material for their 50th anniversary art. They brought so much enthusiasm and care for the organization—what a perfect team for the project. (more…)

30 Years of One Of A Kind Success!

By , January 27th, 2015

It’s hard to believe that One Of A Kind Art Studio has now been creating our signature brand of 3-dimensional commemorative artwork for 30 years. The time has flown by. The studio began working out of the home of Founders Lawrence Romorini and Donna Rome, with USA Today’s 5th anniversary as the first corporate commission. The studio relocated in 1990 to resurgent Silver Spring, MD, just minutes from Washington, D.C Since then, over 1,100 custom works of art have been created for clients large and small (see the latest).

Looking back to 1985, it’s fun to reflect on some of the amazing events that happened that founding year, and our own connection to many of them. (more…)
