We would like to welcome Veronica Thomas to the Art Storm. Veronica is a fine art painter who enjoys exploring numerous varieties of subject matter, doing figurative work, still lives, as well as the challenging “plein-air” painting.
Her art is best described as “passionate realism”, using color and brushstrokes to convey a visual message describing her mood and the love of all things.

Another fantastic, new artist to welcome to the storm of art, Yelena Joy is painter, author and art coach. These words seem to best sum up Yelena's view of what art means to her:
"What I like about art is creation and transformation. I can see how a blank piece of paper transforms into a new painting or pieces of material create a unique quilt. Creating art is such a close metaphor for creating life. We create ourselves every day and transform our lives as we choose to."
"An artist is somebody who produces things that people don't need to have." - Andy Warhol
It's my opinion that Art Storm needs more fine art photographers and Kathy Hoevet is a huge addition to our art galleries. Hello, Kathy, and welcome to the Art Storm.
In her own words, Kathy describes her art:
"My Photography deals with landscapes, abstracts, architecture, whatever catches my eye is what I love to photograph. Sometimes I enjoy getting creative with an image and use different artistic filter effects to create unique artistic pieces."
Here is a screenshot of Kathy's artist profile and a sampling of her images...
Join me in welcoming artist, Pam Haunschild to the Art Storm. Pam's Art Storm Art Profile may be viewed at http://www.artstorm.com/pam-haunschild/
Pam's website is at http://pamhaunschild.com/ and her art, a sample of which can be viewed below, is best described in her own words...
"I love mixing original monoprints with other elements – metallic and fine Japanese papers, fibers, wood, and other natural materials. I am inspired by the natural beauty of southern Oregon.
I include flora and/or fauna elements in all of my pieces. Birds particularly interest me. I try to convey emotion through organic shapes and bright colors, but always with a strong element of design. "
"Every human is an artist. The dream of your life is to make beautiful art." - Miguel Ruiz
From the 4 P's of Marketing-The use of art in businesses (promotion)
The discussion of this article pertains to the role that of artworks and artist are working with advertising and product line marketing to please customers.
Art and marketing come together in the form of advertisement and product design. The collaboration between art and marketing is accepted more now a day than earlier years. Promotion through art in the realm of traditional business, artists run the risk of being “tacky or cheesy” if businesses inappropriately use that art.
Places such as restaurants are being designed to look like art galleries from portrait hanging, furniture placement/ decoration . While products like Lincoln branded vehicles are using the arts to advertise campaigns that say “Hello again”. Art in hotels are being used for pleasure reading through displayed zines, magazines, and books.
In my opinion the collaboration of the marketing and art world is beneficial to both the business and artist by recognition of artist’s and their artwork on or in the product that’s marketed. In some cases art can be used inappropriately and become a commodity which is both tacky for consumers, artist, and business.
(ArtStorm helps artists find the right fit for their art work to ensure promotions in any area, are managed and executed effectively. Keep a look out for more information on promotions of art work.)
