Artist as Designer

It is so hard to make it financially as an artist. That has been my grumble, if not mantra for years and years. I'm always up for trying new ways to make something happen that will help at least buy art supplies and pay for framing and shipping of my work, if not bring greater visibility in the sea of artists.

So, something really cool happened yesterday. I've been pitching art to licensing reps to put on different types of products. Yesterday, I heard from the company that was at the top of my list! It's called Vida. Typically when I try such ventures, sadly, I don't hear back from anyone at all, or if I do it's someone from the bottom of my list, but not so yesterday.

Though my greeting card company is called Love Bird Designs, I've never seen myself as someone that is a designer but on this site that is what the artists are considered. I spent all day composing this page. Check out the spring/summer collection I put together.

Meanwhile, here are some samples of my pieces, which include imagery from my recent paintings and drawings, printed on scarves, in different types of lovely fabrics, and shirts:



Ode to Kandinsky by Stephanie Rose Bird
Cashmere Silk Scarf



Running Brooke by Stephanie Rose Bird
Custom made Sleeveless Top



Rising by Stephanie Rose Bird
Cashmere Silk Scarf



Apparently, like in so many of these ventures or shall I say adventures, artists have to work their way up before gaining visibility on the website or the company...ho hum.

Anyway, the items take 4-6 weeks to be shipped because they are custom made but can be shipped anywhere in the world.

Stop over and see my complete Vida Voices Collection and show some love. <3
