Adore Your Walls

$10,697

Thank you for considering my Kickstarter campaign for AdoreYourWalls.com. As an art advisor in the Midwest, many friends from around the country had asked for help finding great, affordable artwork but I had never found a great way to help them from afar. There are so many options for places to buy art online today, which is wonderful, but for both seasoned-art collectors and newcomers it can be overwhelming. What’s missing online is a readily available consultant who can help people make sense of those myriad of options to find the best art for their spaces. AdoreYourWalls.com will help people find great artwork no matter the parameters all through the web.

From the comfort of your home, users will be able to upload photos of the space and dimensions where they need art and take a lifestyle questionnaire. With this information I will be able to create custom art plans tailored for each customer. No more hours looking through online galleries. Let me help you create a beautiful space that represents your tastes and personality.

Your support will help to pay for exactly half of the website. The rest is being paid from my personal savings. Support for this project beginning at the $50 level includes an art print. This can be chosen through a limited version of the service or through requesting which one you would like. Currently there are 5 limited edition prints by national artists for you to choose from. You will receive an email after the campaign is successful with an option to choose or use a shortened version of the AdoreYourWalls.com service and have a print selected for you. Below are the five options. Options at $250 and $350 include art prints + the service. 

Chad Wys, Castrophia, 8 x 10"
Chad Wys, Castrophia, 8 x 10"

Chad Wys. Chicago, IL.  From an extremely early age picture books devoted to the 19th and 20th century paintings were more valuable to Wys than any toy. You can see this influence and his love for contemporary art merged into each of his work. At its broadest point, his work concerns the examination of visuality: of images and objects, decorations and art and how the manifestations of the reproductions of these materials come to influence our everyday experiences.

Photograph by Garrett Cornelison, @reallykindofamazing, 5x5"

Garrett Cornelison. Los Angeles, CA. Garrett Cornelison was born into a family of artists; his mother - a children’s book illustrator, and his father - a jazz musician. He grew up in a town, outside of a town, outside of a town not far from the middle of the USA. His family fully cultivated his creative endeavors and gifted him his first camera in high school. His subjects vary and his aesthetic sways between a clever playfulness and a charming sensitivity, however he remains ever-focused on trying to tell the story. His failing memory and obsession for the details have more than helped shape his photographic style.

Sunset Strip Motion Studies #531 by R. Nelson Parrish, 8x10"
Sunset Strip Motion Studies #531 by R. Nelson Parrish, 8x10"

R. Nelson Parrish. Santa Barbara, CA. R. Nelson Parrish approaches his art as a means of reconciling an ongoing investigation into the subtle contrasts between the natural and man-made conditions and states. Born and raised in Alaska, Parrish finds inspiration in both the rugged elements of his native home and his current surroundings in urban southern California. 

Sake Series Dream Koi by Kiana Mosley, 8x10"
Sake Series Dream Koi by Kiana Mosley, 8x10"

Kiana Mosley. Eugene, OR. Kiana is an emerging artist born in Hawaii and raised in Southern California, but now resides in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. She is a lifelong, self taught and mentored artist, and studied as a Graphic design major at OSU.

Airplane Window by Laura Palmer, 8 x 10"
Airplane Window by Laura Palmer, 8 x 10"

Laura Palmer. Des Moines, IA. A lifelong Iowan who values a philanthropic spirit, the U.S. Postal Service and a thoughtfully handwritten note, Laura started XO-LP in 2009 producing little greetings made with highlighters, markers and wit. In 2014, she went from full-time fundraiser to full-time illustrator, a dream she's had since creating her first hand-made greeting card in 1988.

Collect all five to create a beautiful gallery wall for your home or office. 

Thank you to the artists for their support and for your consideration of supporting this project and my dream.

Risks and challenges

While no setbacks are foreseen, any time delays may include a delay with the finishing of the website and a delay in fulfillment of the print orders if a larger than expected order comes from the Kickstarter campaign. I am lucky to have a big support team of friends and family who will help me processing all of the orders to make sure that the prints and the service are available in April 2015.
