Let's go back in time...

Most would recognize this building if there were crumbling walls and boarded up windows, which is how the building stands now. Mercedes wanted to capture the true beauty and history of this building. With that intention she decided to paint this historic building as she image it would have looked in 1896-1915. This was when the building was "state of the art" at it's time. The Dubuque Brewing & Malting Company would even transport the barrels of beer on wagons with horses.

How special of a gift would this be for a loved one!?

The meaning behind the artwork ...

The artwork in our home is important. It reflects who we are, it sparks our imagination, and shows what's truly important to us. Having your fondest memories 'captured on canvas' is a way to make our homes unique and special. The artwork in our homes should put a smile on our face, whether it is the subject in the painting, or simply the colors and textures.


There is more meaning behind having a painting versus a photograph. A painting captures and focuses on those precious memories or things in such a colorful, unique way. A hand-painted piece is something that can never be re-created in the exact same way.

The art from the artist, Mercedes Pfab, is more than a painting,

it is...

decades of practice & experience

years of trial and error

patience & mindset

it is her passion

it is her dream!
