I am always exploring new ways to create and present my art. I love experimenting with new mediums which present a challenge to bring my words and images to life. For years now, I have been creating chalk pastel pieces on wood panel and recently I started to explore printing my artwork on wood.
Last year, I found a company that could print images on thin veneer wood as cards and prints and I have been thrilled with the results. A few months ago, after a lot of research, I invested in the equipment to start printing my art on wood by myself. After a lot of trial and error, I have finally printed some vibrant images on birch and poplar veneer wood. It’s a been a journey – but definitely worth it. I was motivated to start printing on my own because a few retailers have started to carry the wooden card line including: terra20 in Ottawa, ShopEco in Windsor and Marcheleo’s in Toronto.
These wooden cards also come with a wooden veneer envelope. They are so unique that in a way, the card becomes the gift! These wooden greeting cards might be the answer in you are trying to buy a gift for someone who is tricky to buy for.
It feels good to create something new and unique that is so organic and eco-friendly yet artistic.
