Kim Hutchinson has been a Zazzler since early 2004 and enjoys the art of digital painting, which entails using a digital camera, a scanner and a computer. She takes a digital photo and alters the image on her computer, similar to an artist painting on a canvas. She edits the form, changes the color and enhances/dims certain aspects of the image. The result is a stunning image like the one to the right. Kim shares with zNews:
It’s been a good year for me, artistically speaking. In the Fall, I was asked to create a digital painting to commemorate a local school’s 75th anniversary. My design now graces a Canadian postage stamp created especially for the school. Last Spring I was invited to apply to take part in Canada’s art display at Expo in Japan. Unfortunately I wasn’t chosen, but it was a huge honor to have been short-listed.
I attribute part of my success to my exposure here at Zazzle. Had I not had such a great Zazzle gallery, the agent for Expo would probably not have found me. – Kim
Thanks for the complement Kim! Keep us posted and best of luck in attending the art Expo next year.
