My name is Dan Duffy, and I started doing "word art" just 10 short years ago. Little did I know at the time, this project to impress my wife would lead me to quit my job and become a full time word artist. I began in the suburbs of Philadelphia under the name Philly Word Art, creating art of Philadelphia sports figures and landmarks and selling them at various flea markets and craft fairs.
Since then, I've expanded my artwork to include cities all over the nation and began selling prints worldwide on artofwords.com. We also maintain 4 holiday stores between Philadelphia and Baltimore and you can still catch us at craft fairs all over the Philly area!
Here's a quick video describing my story + how each piece is made!
