Under Construction: D A N E S S A online art store

I am so excited for the upcoming month of June! May is definitely still my favorite month given all the wonderful things that happen–the flowers are in full bloom, the trees are rich and lively, the springtime weather inspires people to get more active and enjoy the outdoors, and the days are longer and bright! June 1 will be a game-changer for me. I will be officially launching my online art store for all to begin purchasing my artworks! I have never done anything like this in my whole life, and it is both exhilarating and nerve-wracking.

I’ve walked this earth for thirty years, and, out of gratitude, want to leave some souvenir in the shape of drawings or pictures–not made to please a certain taste in art, but to express a sincere human feeling.

-Vincent van Gogh

Yes, I remember many people previously suggesting that I should share and sell my work, to which I have vehemently refused. I used to have this feeling that my art was only special to me and that it was utterly ridiculous that others would want it for their own. While I still do hold each and every piece that I make close to my heart, I find that the best way to ensure that they live on beyond my little world is to begin to share them with others. And that is what propelled me to open this art store online in the upcoming few days. In the past few weeks, I’ve read up and learned so much about things outside my comfort zone, like business and marketing my work. I’ve updated my website and have showcased my work in various art shows this month! I must admit, it is pretty fun to finally love what you do!

I hope that with the launch of my new online art store, you, my dear reader, will find something that speaks personally to you and enjoy. Artwork prints will be limited and the first 5 online customers will receive something extra from me! My only wish is that with each purchased work, you show it the love and care I have devoted into making each of them. Place them in your home, office, or other area and share them with your loved ones. Thank you all for your continued support!

More updates before the end of the month coming soon!
