If you've read my blog long, you know I love Minted. I've ordered my Christmas cards from them, Easter cards, party invites, party decor, and stationary. Great modern design, thick quality paper and wonderful customer service.
I pretty much freaked out when I found out Minted is now selling art prints! These prints are by independent artists from all over the world.
I happen to know that gallery walls are all the rage now. Just look at this photo I took of my friend, Zooey Deschanel's, bedroom when we were having a little slumber party the other night:
Or this may be a screen shot from the season premire of "The New Girl". Either way.
Design Crush used several Minted Art prints to show you how to do the perfect gallery wall.
I was totally thrilled when one of my readers/friends let me know that after clicking my blog link to Minted, she discovered Minted's search for designers.
She entered a piece and won! Now you can order her print!!! So exciting.
This is Laura with her gorgeous original painting.
And here's the print!
And all the sizes you can get it in.
I thought it would fun to get to know the artist behind the art so I asked Laura to tell me a little about herself.
I Studied Art and Graphic Design at Utah State State University, since then, we have
been doing a lot of traveling as a military family. One place we more recently lived was
Okinawa, Japan. We were there for 3 years with our 3 young children, 2 of whom were
born there. What a wonderful place to have the chance to live and experience a
different culture and language. It deﬁnitely has inﬂuenced the way I look at life and also
my design. We now live in Meridian, ID. I have continued to try and ﬁt in time for
designing and my art. I have been blessed to be able to do some design work from
home while still being with my kids. I was excited to recently be involved with some
various art challenges through minted.com. It has been a blessing to have an outlet for
something I love and to be exposed to great designers & their amazing work. I am also
presently the art mom for my sonʼs ﬁrst grade class. What a great experience to go back
to the basics and see little artists who truly enjoy the process.
In the words of PabloPicasso, “All Children are artists.
The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”
Thank you Laura! I loved your painting so much, I got a print for my house!
Go check out the Minted Art prints for yourself. Or, even better, submit one of your original designs. Maybe you will be the newest Mintie!
