Years ago, I owned a fine art production studio. My team produced and sold literally thousands of Giclee Prints of my work to stores and galleries across the country. The slow dance of color matching each print to my original watercolor paintings...adjusting color and saturation, choosing the right paper, inspecting prints closely for perfection before adding my inked signature to the page... there's an integrity in the process of ensuring the print was as faithful a reproduction as I could make it. That meant something to me back then. And still does.
My growing brand takes much of my time and energy these days... I do get a bit giddy designing products for a list of spectacular licensees. But so many have written me this year; some who randomly stumbled upon my work on Pinterest, facebook or Instagram... Some who fell in love with my bedding or fabrics... and some friends who have been collectors for years. The common theme of all those emails was asking if I would someday offer for purchase my originals and reproduction prints of my work.
And those who know me well, know I don't like to disappoint... so... a Shop page is being built (so, so close to being up and running) and I will once again dip my toes into production and offer up a small selection of artwork. You can expect to find a small but well curated assortment of original works that I would love to see hang in a new home... as well as a revolving handful of new fine art prints...mostly limited editions, all hand signed by me. The painting above... well... that's the second in a series. The first, I'll be Right Here... is my "Most Pinned Pin"on Pinterest (which has apparently inspired and sparked the creative juices of many this year.... another post about that, coming soon;) and so I will be making this print available on my Shop page, too. I hope you'll check it out once the page goes live and see if any of my art calls your name. I'd be honored for my art to live with you..
