We are always on the hunt for artists to publish and license. We look for talented artists and seek to stretch and improve our collection to meet the needs of a changing marketplace. We accept art submissions on an ongoing basis. However, it is only fair to let you know that we end up taking on a very small percentage of the very large number of artists who approach us.
What We Look For: Artists with fresh, marketable artwork, with broad decorative appeal appropriate for wall decor and licensing onto home products. Artists who are trend conscious. Artists willing and able to take art direction. Artists with portfolios of 15+ print-ready images. Currently we seek contemporary imagery; somewhat edgy images are welcome. Landscapes, decorative objects, and abstracts are also popular. For licensing, artists willing to paint various holiday art, coffees, wines, grapes, coastal and other staple themes consistently requested by our clients. Black and white photography generally is better received than color photography. New formats or techniques (e.g., emulsion transfers onto textured surfaces) are preferred. (Please no photography with computer filters applied.) We do not publish religious art, nudes, violent or graphically disturbing art. (Suggestion: Take a walk through some of the major retailers near you. Check out the framed art, the dinnerware, bath ensembles and other home products to see if your artwork would be applicable.)
