When I first embarked on painting digital art, my vision was to create artwork reminiscent of vintage landscapes. Truth be told, I dreamed of creating paintings that would blend seamlessly into Sophia of Lemontree + Co. Interiors’ finely curated line of vintage-modern home goods. Not only is Sophia’s design aesthetic exquisite, she has a keen eye for detail. So once I had completed “Lavenham Green,” I reached out to Sophia to hear her thoughts on this painting. Her exact response was, “It’s a winner!! I’ll buy it.”
Well, needless to say, Sophia’s response definitely inspired me to continue. I am deeply touched by her encouragement, not only because I admire her ability to achieve sophisticated simplicity, but also because she values authenticity and a natural aesthetic. In Sophia’s words, “It [nature] brings authenticity to a room and makes us feel grounded. Nature is the home of simplicity.”
Sophia also helped connect me to the Toronto-based print company that I now exclusively use to print my paintings called Posterjack. Posterjack not only produces high quality prints on 308 GSM 100% cotton Hahnemuehle Photo Rag using the giclee method, but they are sustainably-minded and use water based non-toxic inks printed on FSC certified photo paper.
I am honoured to announce that two of my prints are now available to purchase in the Lemontree + Co. shop: “Lavenham Green” and “Grey Skies.”
The fulfilling part of creating and selling art is the rush that comes from people appreciating your work, but also the joy felt when the painting becomes a part of a home’s story. I can’t wait to see how these prints weave their way into your story.
