With Father’s Day approaching, we’re highlighting this One Of A Kind 3-dimensional collage created for a loving daughter Mindi to commemorate her father’s story—as an artist, photographer, husband, father, grandfather.
On Mother’s Day, we salute the amazing mothers and grandmothers who have profoundly shaped countless lives and the success of countless companies. Today we recall especially those mothers we’ve had the chance to celebrate in One Of A Kind art. Our personalized, custom-made 3-dimensional commemorative art is the perfect way to honor an outstanding mother, share her story, and create a piece that will become a lasting family legacy. (more…)
O-H-I-O—an amazing state for singers (Dean Martin, Doris Day), sharpshooters (Annie Oakley), astronauts (John Glenn, Neil Armstrong), comedians (Jonathan Winters, Bob Hope, Fred Willard), entrepreneurs (Dave Thomas, Leslie Wexner) and One Of A Kind commissions! From Cincinnati to Cleveland and assorted points in between, we’ve had the privilege of collaborating with over 30 distinguished Ohio companies, hospitals, and organizations since 1985. Their inspiring stories from The Heartland are as varied as their industries. (more…)
December 1, 1990—we remember it well! Lawrence and I travelled to Chicago with Oprah Winfrey’s surprise Christmas gift from KingWorld Productions. Commissioned by Oprah’s longtime syndicator, this One Of A Kind 3-dimensional art commemorated Oprah’s life story.
The art was unveiled between the tapings of two shows, with KingWorld’s founders Michael and Roger King flying in from LA and New York for the presentation.
Remembering Kenny Rogers on his passing. Lawrence and I are grateful for his music and ever grateful for the opportunity to have commemorated his story with a 50th birthday collage. We spoke to 60 of Kenny’s family and friends to get photos and ideas for the art. And what an amazing journey. From on-site research at his farm in Athens, Georgia to Los Angeles for a spectacular birthday party—with Dolly Parton performing—and the surprise presentation.
Kenny Rogers was also One-Of-A-Kind. The songs live on. RIP.
February’s Black History Month reminds One Of A Kind of African Americans’ extraordinary achievements we’ve been honored to commemorate in One Of A Kind 3-dimensional art over the years. (more…)
Interspersed with our corporate commissions are wonderful family stories we commemorate in One Of A Kind art. This new collage is especially memorable. Over months we collaborated in secret with a father to surprise his son on the eve of his wedding with a legacy of his Irish heritage.
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…)

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 in 1985, with USA Today’s 5th anniversary as the first corporate commission. The small, independent art studio relocated in 1990 to resurgent Silver Spring, MD, just minutes from Washington, D.C. Since then, over 2,500 custom works of art have been created for clients large and small (see the latest).
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of his One Of A Kind Art Studio, Lawrence Romorini visually looked back on his extensive portfolio and chose 30 collages that represent his life’s work of commemorating great American stories, both corporate and personal.
