I have VERY BIG, GOOD NEWS. I’ve felt like bursting from holding it in!
My work has been accepted into A Gallery! A Gallery is a fantastic online gallery who represents some truly stellar other artists in whose company I am proud to be. You might know of Christy Lee Rogers or Tyler Shields, who are both extraordinary and whose work I knew before I was to be shown alongside them. One of the most giddy, fan-girl moments though was discovery A Gallery also represents Chris Parks whose work you will know if you’ve seen one of my very favorite movies ever; The Fountain. That magical, swirly, organic background used in so many shots (especially in clouds of stars and gas in space) are his creation.
*Squealing, fan-girl hopping*
Ahem. I am VERY happy to have found such a wonderful home for my art! I’m thrilled to be working with A Gallery’s owner, Fraser Scott; it’s going to be a really great, long-lasting relationship for everyone involved! I can’t wait to see what this brings!! This feels like a really big accomplishment to have checked off my life’s to-do list… and yes, there was champagne when I checked it off 🙂
When you purchase a print, you will receive one of my gorgeous, luscious, limited-edition, signed and numbered museum-quality prints, printed on the thickest, most delicious fine art paper. I am going to be printing all my images on Hahnemuhle Fine Art Pearl Paper. It’s almost like a watercolor paper and it picks up every tiny detail for your viewing pleasure! As a wonderful bonus, the paper itself is ever-so-slightly shimmery, which truly adds a whole other depth to the images and enhances their magical, mythical feel. It’s been a long time searching for exactly the right paper which would give me the lifetime of quality I want along with the subtle, fae-like touch of pearl, and this paper is it. You really have to see it to understand how gorgeous it is
I have sung the praises of my printers, POV Evolving, before and I’ll say it once more. They are not close to me. Their location is somewhere between a hassle and a nightmare to get to, I can never go without getting a little lost coming or going, and it’s a big mental and physical drain to make the trip down. I don’t care. Their work is so fantastic, I do not care where they are, how long it takes, how snarly the traffic is; it’s completely worth it! Lauren, who does my printing, is also a truly lovely person who makes the trip extra worthwhile by being so pleasant when you get there. Pleasantness aside, POV just does astonishing work which will last a lifetime and more. I have been told by clients who have my work hung in their homes, that when people come over and see my prints for the first time, there are often gasps. I feel immodest saying that, but that really is the level of beauty you’ll be getting!
It feels truly wonderful to have found a home gallery run by such a great person who has a commitment to my work, an emphasis on working ethically with everyone, and being in the company of such immensely talented other artists!
I’ve scattered some of Fraser’s image choices through this post, but please take a look at which images he has selected for his prestigious gallery! And if something strikes your fancy, feel free to purchase a print for yourself or a loved one! 🙂
I will still be selling prints through my Etsy shop; either way you will be receiving the same, incredibly high-quality item!
I should have some more good new to share soon, but in the mean time, feel free to join me in having a celebratory drink of your choosing! Cheers!
