I've Been Minted

I've Been Minted

Had Kathryn known how obsessed I would get with the Minted x Domino Art Print Challenge she might not have told me about it in the first place. It came to her by way of an email from one of her favorite interior design magazines, Domino, in which they announced their partnership with Minted.com, and a subsequent art competition.

Perhaps a friendly competition is one of the few things that fuels me more than the creative process, and so two weeks later I came up for air with seven entries.

Only 200 of the nearly 2,800 submitted art prints were chosen as winners, as voted on by the Minted community, or hand-picked by the Minted and Domino editorial teams. I was thrilled to learn my entry Golden Gait (picture above) was among the winning designs, deemed a Minted Exclusive Editors' Pick. Bangarang!

Before long my work was for sale in Minted's Art Marketplace and just last night I sold my first print! And no it wasn't my mother, I checked.

I've also self-launched one of my not-so-winning entries, Ficus lyrata, also now for sale in my Minted.com Store. A massive 30" x 40" print of this Fiddle-leaf fig leaf is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. 

What motivation it is to sell a print! I'm working on some new ideas. 

Happy Holidays!
