Art Installation, Picture Framing, Illustration, Architectural Renderings, Pet Portraits, Fine Art, Consulting, Expert in Presentation and preservation

As a degreed illustrator Jupey T. Gale‘s subjects are as diverse as her many styles and mediums. Her art exhibits a diverse and transient study of the duality of the world, as we know it. True to this duality you’ll find both a recognized Fine Artist (art from the heart) and also a successful Freelance Artist (art for hire). As a fine artist she has produced a variety of works portraying everything from sardonic political commentary to fantastical figuratives and dreamy landscapes. As a Freelance Artist projects ranged from architectural renderings, pet portraits, large-scale theatrical installations, custom automotive detailing, custom furniture refinishing and more. Her success is in working with her clients to create custom made art to suit their specific wants and needs. She completed her foundation studies in Visual Communications at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY and received a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art with emphasis on Illustration from the Art Academy of Cincinnati. Jupey has been a successful Freelance and Fine Artist for over 20 years, Her work can be found in many prestigious corporate and residential collections to include; Procter & Gamble, Japan,Chiquita Center, Jergens Co., and was hired by Procter & Gamble to create a special gift to their Corporate Exchange Intern from Japan P&G. 1995. Currently, Jupey continues to grow as both Fine Artist and Freelance Artist establishing herself in the DC Metro Area.

Dedicated to the specialized nature of Installation, Presentation, Preservation and creation of art.

Artist Encases Incredibly Detailed Miniature Worlds Inside Antique Pocket Watches Teeny tiny worlds live within these timepieces.

BEFORE: an original oil. Appears someone tried to varnish it possibly with straight polyurethane WHILE STILL IN THE FRAME. It has yellowed over the years as you can see from the portion that was under the lip of the frame. Also appears to have lived in a home with a heavy smoker. Over several weeks, painstakingly cleaning with cotton balls and various chemicals and painting cleaners, the finished product is absolutely stunning. I re-varnished it last night. Will follow up with a side by side before and after tomorrow.

[03/15/19]   I just told a customer NO.

She wanted to commission me to draw a picture of a womans face. She has no picture for reference. And no human for reference. It is from a memory. Not even her memory, it's from her husbands memory. She couldnt tell me what medium, even to narrow down between pencil and pen & ink, wants a FIRM quote, wants photorealistic, but doesnt want to pay too much.
thanks but no thanks.

That about sums it up.

Hee hee! Truth. :D

Cleaning and varnishing for a client. then reframing.

Immortalize your loved ones!
Pet Portraits in pen & ink, gouache or oils.

Furlough Special: $150 black and white 16" x 20"

I finished this RUSH 3 calligraphy documents, with a whole day to spare. Here are a few in progress pics and one of the final products. These are 3 nearly identical documents, 975 characters each (not including spaces) on archival parchment type paper (not real parchment) with India Ink, done with copperplate calligraphy nib and crow quill pen. Total time about 17 hours. Someone who does this all the time could probably do it faster but i'm old and my hands are eaten up with arthritis and carpal tunnel. These are not perfect but are by far the largest calligraphy project i've ever done. Not too shabby if i do say so myself.

This customer is the same family as the metal wall, this time it was a family wall. His side, her side and their growing family. One day i'll count exactly how many pieces. Most of these were easel backs and required altering to remove the easel and add a hanging mechanism (thereby extending the installation time) and the customer preferred 2 hooks per piece. Approx 12 hours work total. the layout alone was about an hour and a half. But look at the end product. Love it

The wall is FINISHED!! This wall is brick with a skim of real plaster over it. My telescoping ladder was at it's fullest extension for the tippy top. This stairwell has a huge skylight in the ceiling. Not ideal for traditional art. These items were collected all over the world by career military family. (thank you for your service)

Don't you think it was worth it in the end?

Had FOUR installations today. Started at 8 am. Finished 8pm. The last one was TWO 7’ x 8’ paintings. It was a full body workout maneuvering them from basement to 2 floors up. AND, No kiddies tonight, pamper-yourself-nite is ON!

Took some time for ME on this one. Picked up one of my fave sculptures of all time by the late Patrick Converse over spring break. Enameled steel and about $140 pounds, It's been out in the elements and in need of some restoration. However, 4 days later, an unexpected spring cold, a March for life, a possibility of 8-12" of snow en route, 1200 miles, and a swamp, the new Jeep Renegade was towing like a boss, it's here and its mine.

Before and After

RG3 was supposed to save the team. This is a jersey I framed while working for Broadway Gallery. Do you like the extra pizazz of the "REDSKINS" cut into the strip sides?

Sports paraphernalia .... Show your colors!

There is huge and then there's HUGE. This Antique Flemish Tapestry posed a problem because of it's sheer size and weight, not to mention it's value. It had been previously mounted onto a solid plaster wall using a 3" wooden strip lined with VELCRO!!! Much to my dismay this is considered industry standards and is a process used in many museums nowadays. However, since this piece was so out of square and heavy it wasn't hanging nicely and it created a huge ripple effect through the left hand side where it was sagging from it's own weight and pulling off of the velcro. I took it down, removed the strips from the wall. Patched and painted the wall. Removed the velcro from the back. Hand sewed a linen sleeve across the back taking into consideration the NON-square form. Had a custom 18 foot wrought iron rod fabricated with FIVE 3" mounts. And re-hung this bad boy back up at the El-Hibri Foundation downtown. It is a family heirloom and is STUNNING in their main conference room. Now it hangs nice and flat and is not sitting on the wall collecting moisture but instead has air to breathe flowing behind it. Thank you Hugo Salazar Santa Maria and Raul Llanos for your help on this project.

Have you ever seen a Blue Green Abelard or an Andeluvan Gackler, or a Two Horned Drouberhannis? Any number of funny Unorthodox Taxidermied Fantastical beasts can be found in this customers Dr. Seuss room. God I love my job

This is a piece i designed and fabricated for a Color Wheel (veteran)customer. Archival custom museum shadowboxing is my specialty and as the post says, yes, no glue used ever! Be proud and display it proud, you earned this

Created by Color Wheel's custom framing team, this #shadowbox features Larson-Juhl Custom Frames deep profile moulding, a red suede Nielsen Bainbridge mat, a Max background fillet to add dimension, and Tru Vue Museum Glass. The project was finished with conservation backing and paper. The knives and military items were wired and sewn down—no glue was used.
