Utilizing beautiful artwork in our designs helps us deliver products that not only look great but that communicate on a powerful emotional level,” stated Alicia Norman, Product Development Manager at Messenger.
The Messenger team treated Ms. Bastin to a plant tour, presentation on their deep-rooted company history and overview of the funeral industry and lunch. Ms. Bastin signed prints of her artwork for Messenger team members during her visit. “Having the opportunity to meet and spend the day with Ms. Bastin was remarkable” stated Heather Garman, Marketing Director at Messenger. “She is not only very gracious and tremendously talented but also very passionate about looking, listening and delivering special messages of comfort and hope through her painting. We are delighted that Ms. Bastin has joined the Messenger family.”
