When I moved to New York City from Southern California nearly 20 years ago, I missed the easy access to nature I’d always enjoyed there. Over time, though, I became attuned to the ways the natural world reveals itself even in the heart of the city—in its rambling parks, its abundant farmers markets, its window boxes erupting with blooms. Still, by the middle of last year, my fourth-floor apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and my daily commute on the subway had begun to feel stifling. It was time for a change.

The New England coastal scenes that Nantucket muralist Audrey Sterk paints by hand take months to complete. But thanks to digital printing technology, she can customize her work to suit your décor and deliver to your door in two weeks.  

 

Want the blue of that marsh bird’s wing to match your drapes? Send Sterk a swatch. Want your mural to scale the full height of a two-story stairwell? Sterk will add more sky.
