If you've been keeping an eye on the Etsy shop or my instagram account then you've seen my latest painting experiment. The idea to create and sell magnets came from wanting a smaller plein air painting setup. This setup was perfect to make tiny paintings of desert landscapes that I planned to sell. After realizing I could adhere magnets to the back of these paintings, I decided to cut a batch of masonite and test out the idea. So far they've turned out great and have become a perfect way to warm up or test ideas in my studio.
With new collectors in mind I wanted to offer original art at an affordable price. In the past I've noticed a stigma about precautions potential collectors may have towards handling and approaching fine artwork. With my magnets I want my audience to feel comfortable connecting with and sharing them in their home. Art is something to be engaged with and should be accessible to those who wish to live with it.
