Introducing Art Carried Away (plus a giveaway!!)

The giveaway winner has been announced!
Scroll to the bottom of this post to find out if it’s YOU!!

I am beyond excited to finally share with you a project that I’ve been working on behind the scenes for several months now. In truth, this idea has been something I’ve wanted to make a reality for years but I never really had the guts (or the training) to bring my visions to life. Now though, with a few years of adulthood (and Adobe experience) under my belt, I finally decided to just go for it…Now I’m dreaming in quirky quotes, swoopy fonts and colors galore and have zero intentions of looking back.

The brand Art Carried Away actually has a pretty long history. When I graduated from college with a degree in art four years ago, I always thought that I would become a bonafide artist (for those curious, I was, and still AM, a portrait artist). Although I still do a couple of commissions a year, I’m too realistic to believe that my portraiture can carry me through life rolling in riches. But that has not stopped my drive and my passion to continue being what I’ve always known myself to be at my core, and getting carried away in the process.

I’m a firm believer that you should create things that you would have in your own home, and while I still appreciate and admire portraiture, my tastes have moved on to more contemporary and graphic art. For two years I have been working on gaining the confidence that I needed to just jump in head first. In the process, the new Art Carried Away brand was born.

These four prints are the just beginning of a completely re-imagined reality of the Art Carried Away brand. Some are playful, some are inspirational and ALL are meant to respond and resonate with someone in a personal way. My hope with the collection is that you can browse through the prints and suddenly stop on one that “speaks to you.” Keep visiting if you don’t see it yet!

What’s the future? I can’t say. I hope to continue developing and that I can take my inspiration far beyond this little ole blog. I’m honored to join the ranks over on Etsy with my brand new shop and hope that you have fun looking around – Enjoy!

Now for the REALLY fun part…In honor of this brand new venture in my life, I’m offering one of you guys your very own 8×10 print OF CHOICE! Simply follow the details below to enter your name into the drawing. I hope you are as excited as I am!
