Art is personal, too. Every piece of art communicates special meaning through images, words, or sounds.
As both storytellers and artists, we wanted to come up with a way for these distinct creative processes to somehow become a one-of-a-kind collaboration for everyone. Like you, we believe that sharing memories and imaginations could help create a more colorful, compassionate and loving world.
And StoriesToArt was born.
StoriesToArt enables you to commission exclusive pieces of art, music, or poetry directly inspired by your stories. The result is a powerful and personal work of art — for yourself or as the perfect gift — that allows professional artists to express their own styles based on your creative input.
StoriesToArt connects art lovers to artists in a whole new way. Our commissions and original pieces are available in everyone’s price range, and there are even opportunities to obtain free art via our story contests.
Best of all, StoriesToArt Gives Back 5% to support artists and promote arts education nationwide.
Everyone has a story to tell, and we believe that any story can become a true work of art. With StoriesToArt, you’re invited to tap into your creative side like never before.
