I am very excited to be able to offer you one of Geninne’s gorgeous watercolor prints. I have been a long time admirer of her art as it is so bold, beautiful and full of positive energy.
Geninne is an artist who lives with her husband and two teenage sons in sunny Mexico. Her art reflects her location through the vibrant, warm colors and sunny feel to them. She often combines old stamps, envelopes, postcards and other media to make mixed media paintings that are just lovely! Her Collage Bird series are so fun! The majority of her paintings feature birds and flowers or fungi and all are enchanting. You can see the Collage Bird series and more at her etsy shop.
You can also find her birds on greeting cards, wrapping paper, notecards and invitations through Madison Park Greetings. Head to her website to find out all the information and see the pictures of them, they are too numerous to share here! Her media isn’t limited to paper though, she also has a line of pillow covers and often embroiders her designs to make small fabric ornaments.
“Bird No. 17″ print
She also enjoys stamping and makes her own stamps. She has even written a book on the subject, Making an Impression: Designing & Creating Artful Stamps.
To read more about her and her art, check out her interview as a featured seller on Etsy.
This giveaway is for the “Warbler” print (seen at the top of this post). It is 6″ x 8″. It is printed on acid free 300 grs. Fabriano watercolor paper with an Epson R1800 printer. It has a white border suitable for framing. It is signed and dated in the front.
