Next up is Summer of The Art of Summer Breeze.

1. What do you make/sell?

I make wonderfully colourful abstract-realist paintings featuring nature and the wonders that surround us. If I had one word to describe my art it would be “colourful”; I love colour and the emotions it can inspire.  I strive to make eye-catching out of the ordinary pieces that can brighten any space and encourage a state of wonder. My work is available as originals, prints, greeting cards and magnets.

2. Why do you make/sell it? What inspires your work?

When I look at nature I not only see the beauty of its surface, but more importantly I see the overlooked beauty of the shapes and lines and colours that when added together, create scenes of whimsy. I started drawing at the age of 2, often sitting next to my dad with a blank stack of printer paper as he graded exams. My mom has told me that even at such a young age, not only was I prematurely holding my drawing implements correctly, but that it was evident in my artistic vigor and determination that I had something to say. Creating and playing with art has always been something that I’ve HAD to do, something that when I’ve not been able to spend time on I’ve felt lost and I would continue to create art whether or not anyone else was interested.

3. Is there anything you’d like to tell others about what you do?

Apart from my traditional art experience I also have a strong digital art background which has brought new life to my work. As a working artist I never like to rule anything out, all the while looking for new ways of expressing myself artistically. This “job” has been a whirlwind of sorts, lots of ups and downs, but with every down the ups have gotten bigger. I am still so elated with the fact that I can make a living as an artist, and it still puts such a smile on my face when I see the looks on people’s faces when they ask “…and what do you do for a living” and I respond, “I’m a full-time artist!”

Finally, we have Terri of Lucky Wall Art.

1. What do you make/sell?

My shop specializes in whimsical animal prints that are reminiscent of vintage portraits. As a mother of two girls, educated in art and design, I noticed how difficult it was to find realistic animal portraits for my girls’ rooms. This is when Lucky Wall (Etsy: LuckyWallArt) was born, specializing in canvas and watercolour prints of my original oil paintings.

2. Why do you make/sell it? What inspires your work?

I am very much inspired my nature. I recently went hiking with my husband and two girls when a black bear poked his head out from a bush beside us. If it wasn’t for my sheer panic, my camera would have captured the perfect picture of this adorable animal. I paint animals, and a black bear may just be the next animal I paint!

3. Is there anything you’d like to tell others about what you do?

My work strives to be playful and fun while demonstrating a high level of technical skill and an attention to detail. Deliberately gender-neutral, the animals and the background colours I choose compliment a wide variety of colour schemes and room styles, and the materials I use are high quality, durable and archival.

In addition to canvas and watercolour prints I will be unveiling a series of 2”x2” magnets based on my painted animals.
