Sydney Gruber, an artist who grew up playing chess, found Chess House while looking for single plastic bishop pieces. Most people purchasing single pieces are trying to complete a full set of pieces Sydney, however, had a different idea.

She made them into business cards! “It was my hope that my hand painted bishops will be eccentric enough to say everything I can hope to say in a personal calling card” she says.

Sydney’s art really caught our attention and in brilliant fashion this painted chess set she recently completed illustrates why.

She says, “This was an incredibly fun project for me. I am ecstatic to be working with Chess House and doing something chess related – it’s such a treasured part of my life.”
