Very well packaged! Kept these beauties safe; they look great :)
I think small.
"There is no wealth but life."
"We reject the idea that only the rich can afford good art."
-the Micromentalist Manifesto
My maternal grandparents were both into the arts & crafts movement, so they encouraged me to draw and design from an early age. I have since earned a couple of fine art degrees, but it's the lessons from my grandparents that endure.
My shop name--the micromentalist--is inspired by the micromentalist art movement founded in 2006 in Chicago by my friend, Patrick Welch.* Micromentalists believe that art should be small and easily acquired by regular folks, as opposed to monumental and exclusive. We keep the cost down by keeping the work intimate in size. That way, you can have a little accent in a corner of a room or big drama made up of many smaller pieces acquired over time, both according to your own budget.
I've since sold many pieces to friends, but what has surprised me is how many pieces I've sold on Etsy that make a home with new friends from all over the states and beyond.
Beauty is in the details. It's where the quirky, informal qualities of your design personality reside. I am honored to be a small piece in the puzzle of making your space uniquely your own.
