About

Art. Gifts. Photography.

My name is Vanessa Gamelin. I am the owner, photographer, designer, maker, shipment-putter-together-er, and friendly customer service rep of Art304Photography.

Born and raised in Minnesota, I am a lover of all things natural. I moved to Brooklyn, New York in 2014 to begin a new chapter in life. I had visited the city previously and was inspired by the eclectic urban environment. Around every corner was something new to see. Every block had a fascinating mix of colors and textures.

In 2012, I graduated with an Art degree, took a detour away from art for awhile, and was drawn back to my photography while living in Brooklyn. As a multipotentialite, I've done many, vastly different jobs in my life thus far, but none have been more enjoyable and rewarding than creating images and making beautiful pieces of art. I hope every piece I create finds a home that will enjoy it just as much as I enjoyed making it.

I started out offering my prints only on photographic paper, but I love keeping busy and working with my hands. While working at a craft store, I quickly learned transferring photographs onto wood was becoming a popular project. Trying it out, I became excited of the new medium to put my photography on. It was like magic! I still love my photos on paper and still offer them, but transferring them to wood gives my photos an interesting new life.

The steps to making my wood prints are fairly simple. I attain a laser printed copy of a photograph I have taken myself (or been given for a custom order). I then use regular gel medium to transfer the copy onto a wood panel and let the transfer sit for at least 8 hours. Afterwards, I rub the paper away with a wet washcloth until the image is completely revealed. I finish each piece with a coat of paint on the profile and/or a polycrylic finish for protection against the elements. A few trade secrets and tricks are scattered throughout the process as well.

I genuinely hope you enjoy my photographs. Please feel free to send me a message with any questions you may have. So glad you stopped by!

Copyrights for Custom Photo Transfers

If you'd like to have a copyrighted photograph printed by me as part of a custom order, you must either own the copyrights of the image or have obtained permission from the original owner of the image.

Cradled Wood Panels: Free-Standing and Hanging

Cradled wood panels up to 8 x 8 x 1 inches in size are able to stand on their own without additional support. I reccomend hanging any of the larger sizes. All cradled wood panels can be hung with a simple nail. Ask me about adding hanging wire to make it easier to hang from a picture hanger or Command hook.
