Hi! I'm Carol Andrews, living in beautiful Missouri City, Texas... just a hair Southwest of Houston.
I've been a professional photographer for about thirty years. After enduring damage by Hurricane Ike and a home studio fire, I chose to not reopen my portrait photography business. For many years, I felt loss and grief about my profession, and my passion of creating art. Several years later, I began photographing flowers when one of my dearest friends had breast cancer. The act of the photography gave me a place of solace and comfort. I spent a lot of time channeling my energy into contemplation and prayer, while focusing on beauty. It felt like observing stories and messages in ancient stained glass windows . The beauty of nature helped to ground and sustain me.
Years later, I'm still focused on creating imagery of beauty, but now with a total change of style and technology.
After my amazingly successful previous Kickstarter, I've decided to launch another one, with Valentine's day in mind.
Just a few things the previous Kickstarter taught me include:
How to refine and streamline business practices
How important eye protection is! (thankfully no one was hurt!)
How to hide and store 1000 product boxes? (Spoiler: under a treadmill).
Surprise your sweetie with roses that won't wilt on her desk, make her fat, and remind her everyday of how much you love her.
These hand-crafted Art Glass Visions are less expensive, and last a lot longer than a dozen roses, not to mention they make an distinctive gift for the man in your life. They also make also remembrances for bridesmaids gifts and Mother's Day.
These images are exclusive to Kickstarter, and not available anywhere else (even on my website). This Kickstarter will be the only way to receive these images before Valentine's Day!
I have 12 different images that I am offering as part of this collection, as soon below with their corresponding number:
If you aren't sure which one you would like, that's okay! All you need to do is back now, and you can decide which one you would like at a later date!
Risks and challenges
Having successfully completed and shipped my first Kickstarter a few weeks ago, I feel confident in offering this beautiful collection for the new year 2016. This Kickstarter will help add to my credibility in the giftware market, not only as a designer, but also as a producer.
As a result of my first Kickstarter, I am now featured in six retailers outside Texas.
This new kickstarter allows me to test design images and gather client feedback, along with being able to continue focusing on business development in order to expand into the wholesale gift market.
I believe my previous experience, both professionally and through kickstarter, have well prepared me for this project. Please back with confidence!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
