Welcome to the new home of Greenspirit arts! I’ve been needing to make this switch for many years and the timing was never right…until now. I say “now” but the real truth is, I’ve been working on this new website since last December so “now” has been an awfully long time! But good things are worth waiting for and so it is my hope that we will all enjoy this new place together for many, many years to come.
Features of the new website
This new website has so many features I hardly know where to begin. First, as I hope you’ve already noticed, the way I can display my photographs is finally the kind of presentation that the images deserve. Big, luscious galleries with clickable images so you can see them nice and big on your screen. YAY! I have tons more images (as my ardent followers know) and as time permits I will upload more so the galleries will be bursting with work and will be even more fun to explore.
Next, as I also hope you’ve already noticed, there is a whole other side to my creative/professional life… my 22 years as a watercolor painter and graphic artist which can now be recognized and shared here with all of you. This has been a dream of mine for over a decade and it has finally come true. Just click on the Painting tab or HERE and you will find several galleries of some of my most popular images….enjoy! There will be more information posted as time allows where I will talk about the painting work in general and some of the images specifically….some have rather magical stories behind them.
Another HUGE plus is the very thing you are reading right now…my new blog which is now a wholly integrated part of my website. For over 11 years my blog and website have been separate entities out in the cloud…no more! Having the blog and website together under one canopy means my visitors and readers will now be able to access everything from one, central location….that too is such a welcomed change. I hope it makes your experience of my world a lot more enjoyable.
In addition to all the lovely galleries of images, in my new SHOP feature I can show you all the best product items that are currently available that use my images, both the Greenspirit Arts work but also my painting work. I’ll be able to easily update these now which means you will always have the very latest information on new product releases and sale opportunities. Anything that is time-sensitive (such as special sales, coupon codes etc) will be mentioned in the “News” section in the navigational links at the top of any page.
As you journey thru the galleries, you’ll notice that most of the images have a green button in the info panel… this is a new, key element that I am super excited about because now my fans and viewers can order almost ANY image as a print for their home or office or to give as a gift. Please do check out the Custom Prints section in my shop for more details.
And if you’ve visited the shop, you may have seen something that sounded a bit mysterious….the Secret Sale feature. What is that you may have asked… well it too is a long- wished-for way to connect with my serious fans who collect my one-of-a-kind Fairy House sculptures. YES! I now will be able to offer them for sale on a very exclusive basis. Please go HERE for more details and loads of lovely images of houses that have sold in the past. This will sure to become a favorite location for folks who enjoy taking their time and soaking up the detailed images.
As for other features on offer here in the new website, under the Artist tab you will find many pages that may be of interest. A brief Biography is still in the works – stay tuned for that one. Also waiting to be filled in is a page called “Life as an Artist”. This will be a space to share some specific aspects of how life as an artist is different from the regular world and how it may also be quite similar. I’ll also get to tell you more about a dream I am hoping to build: an artist’s retreat. Look for that under the Community tab. The Artist section is also where you will find the place to sign-up for my newsletter (which is also getting an upgrade) as well as a few other goodies. Have fun exploring!
Thanks too for reading this overly-long post. Like any proud new home-owner it has been a treat to show you around a wee bit and give you a general lay-of-the-land intro. However, it must be said that this place is meant to be a respite and haven from the noise and confusion which seems to be getting louder and louder in the built world and online. You may notice that this website has NO outside advertising. No pop-up ads asking you to do this or that….no shoe ads stalking you from other websites. That is by design. I will never have 3rd part ads here as this is a place I’ve built especially with your pleasure and comfort top-most in mind. I hope you will come back often and just enjoy the gifts that Nature has offered to share with you through my work. The faeries, elementals and nature spirits appreciate your kind attention as do I.
Wishing you Bright Blessings and Peace!
