Welcome to Shikles Fine Art Creations
Shikles Fine Art Creations features Diamond Etching and Monument Design by Artist, Anita Shikles. Anita has been designing and hand
etching monuments and headstones for over 15 years. With a background in fine art and illustration, Anita offers unique and custom
designs that tell your story on beautiful black granite.
Anita Shikles also offers unique 3-D etchings in granite. These designs are a combination of carving and
etching, and can be done around almost any subject matter.
Color etchings are hand painted, and treated as fine art, rather than just adding flat color into an etching. You will see highlights
and shadows on these painted etchings.
Color usually lasts about 15-20 years on an outdoor monument, and can be touched up or repainted. As paint wears over the years, the
beautiful black and white etching is there forever. Color longevity may vary due to weather conditions where the stone is placed.
Anita Shikles can help you locate the perfect monument for your loved one. We can offer special orders, unusual designs, and professional
quality from start to finish on your stone. We also etch pet markers.
