As of yesterday, I have entered into a licensing agreement for my Totem paintings with Island Art Publishers for art cards!
Island Art was my first choice as I’m a fan of a number of their artists and I’m pleased that they’ll be representing my work. Island Art primarily supplies a large number of retailers and museums throughout Western Canada, and also distributes through Eastern Canada, Washington, Oregon and Alaska.
I believe this region is the best possible market for my current Totem series, as it features animals found in the Rocky Mountains and Western Canada. When I begin my West Coast wildlife series in the Fall, I’m confident that the images will find their way into the right stores and museums along the coast, thanks to this arrangement.
The first images to be put into production will be the mammals in my Totem series; the Wolf, Grizzly, Moose, Elk and Ground Squirrel. I’ve seen the layout proofs and they look great! The cards go into production next week and should be available to retailers a week or two after that.
