Canvas prints of my artworks with iCanvas

Early this year, iCanvas reached out to me to see if I’m interested in working with them. I was skeptical because I wasn’t sure about this “prints on demand” thing. But iCanvas told me that they are different from websites such as Redbubble or Society6. After reading all paperwork they sent me, I thought “why not?”. I like their detailed and very formal contract. So I signed up.

They crop my images into their products. The processing takes a while from my point of view. But overall the result looks good.

For example, this barn owl painting has been cropped into a square shape canvas print. (Click on the photo to see the product details)

I learned a lot during this process. They ask for high resolution images to make large canvas print, way larger than I use to. Because of that, I start to study the RAW file by DSLR camera. I need to find a software that can deal RAW file photo. And I also need to find a better way to do the photoshoot of my paintings. Well, yes, part of me is still trying to avoid those problems in the beginning. However the rest of me knows that I have to manage these problems eventually. I’m glad that I pull it through. Now I can have better quality photos for my paintings in shorter time.

If you are interested, please take a moment and visit my page on iCanvas. You may compare their prints than other websites such as my store at Society6. I don’t know where iCanvas will lead me, the only thing I know is that I have to move forward as much as possible. 😀

Thank you for your support.

My paintings are an outlet to express the imagination I have inside my head that I can not put into words. After trying many mediums, I always find myself coming back to paint and brushes. In my current artistic practice, I use oil paint and mainly create portraits of mythical creatures and animals transfixed in the shifting colours of seascapes and landscapes. There is a natural spirit and magic to these creatures and their energy draws me in. Choosing to paint these creatures as real living wildlife rather than abstractions, I use bold and vivid colours to express the imaginary intertwined with reality, finding magic between the seams. Using a saturated colour palette, I create bold and striking imagery, contrasted between foreground and background, subject and landscape, and light and darkness. Weaving their bodies and the surface of the landscape into each other through organic forms and flowing brush strokes, I find beauty, strength and innocence in these creatures that reflect my inner world.
