Are you frustrated with urn choices that run from boring to staid, and even if you spend more money you don't get a whole lot of options to show how cool your person was?
Liberate your imagination and create a beautiful colorful unique piece of art that speaks beyond words to carry memories both on the urn and as prints for friends and family.
• You or your loved one have possibly been described as having "a bit of an attitude". We like you lots already.
• A marker of your loved one's death is not enough. Art speaks to you, and you want it to speak of a life well-lived; the ties and joys and passions of a soul that REALLY LIVED, not just a start and stop date.
• Traditional urns are OK, but you want something that reflects the myriad of ways your person impacted our world, a heartfelt way to show their legacy.
• Your person wasn't average, they had a light, and you want to share it, to continue to be inspired by their joys, connections, and achievements.
• Your family value independent thought, creativity, and doing things their own d**n way. They will really appreciate how you have created a meaningful urn to give them a final gift that honors a life well-lived, as well as quality prints that respect and honor your person's colorful being.
• Actually, this is for you... you want to go out in your own darn style, consistent with your life.
• You have something like an allergic reaction to normal (toes curl, hackle raise) so you are delighted when you can be heard and your ideas properly expressed outside of cookie-cutter norms. Because if you can do something amazingly right, why settle for "good enough"?
Knowing you achieved a special and meaningful goodbye.
Having a touchstone of memory that truly reflects the story of a life well-lived.
Being listened to, and your ideas brought to life to make a moment of memory.
Going beyond the standard options to find a way to properly honor the individuality of your loved one.
And being able to share all that with friends and family with fine art prints so that you keep the memory, stories and spark alive in your heart and the hearts of your people.

"Paula focused on the tribute to my father, that he so deserved. Her artistic skills created a lasting treasure of his life. She gave his passing the honor and distinction for the man he was, and wanted to be remembered as. My father was a unique individual and I would have been saddened to lay him to rest in a cookie cutter box. I LOVE what Dead Gorgeous Box is able to give to us at a time when we need so much. Thank you, thank you, thank you"

Paula, and the other artists of DGB
Art adds beauty to my life. It also creates something that I can interact with mentally and emotionally to re-center myself and at times examine my feelings through different lenses. It always shines through and communicates both beauty and emotion.
