Thanks for looking into Art By Blackston.


My name is Michael Blackston and I'm a lover of anything that has to do with the arts. In this site, you're going to find an array of my styles and services that are available to you. If you need artwork done, odds are, I offer something for you.

I make my living rendering high detail artwork on granite memorials and gravestones. People have asked if I consider that rather morbid, and my answer is a resounding, "No." My clients have been a consistent blessing for me for more than a decade now, allowing me to become such an important part of the process of remembering their loved one.

The most important thing you need to know about me is that I don't consider myself a "granite etcher" or just someone else who sells art on the internet. I am a Professional Artist. That means that I am invested in every single commission and customer satisfaction is my top priority. A business that doesn't value the customer first will not last very long.

If you see something on this site that you think could be improved upon, I want to know. I'm committed to making this website the very best it can be and I'll do that by paying careful attention to the feedback from my clients and visitors.


I've been married to my beautiful wife for over twenty years and together, we have two amazing children. We have also made a forever home for many animals over the years, including dogs, cats, birds, and reptiles. We currently care for three cats and a dog. If you peruse the site, I think you'll quickly see how much animals are an important part of our world.

If you have any questions at all, or even if you just want to say hello, please don't hesitate to contact me HERE.

Thanks again for the interest and I look forward to meeting you.
