  • Shakespeare once wrote, “What’s in a name?”

    Maria Sambs Botelho of Elizabethtown knows the answer: art.

    As owner of Personalized Sketches ... It’s All About You, Botelho creates ink drawings composed entirely of names. An example on her business card displays a bald eagle drawn entirely by using the name Grace.

    What separates her art from other techniques, such as cross-hatching, is the personal touch, she said.

    “A name is special,” Botelho said.
