Create Birds in Watercolor, Collage, and Ink with Geninne’s Art

Santa Fe nature artist Geninne D Zlatkis is well-known on Instagram and Pinterest for her charming paintings and collages of birds. In GENINNE’S ART: BIRDS IN WATERCOLOR, COLLAGE, AND INK (Quarry Books, June 12, 2018, $24.99 US), for the first time, she offers her fans a field guide to her art process. A skilled nature photographer as well as artist, Geninne begins her work in the field by observing and photographing birds and flowering plants. Then takes her observations back to the studio, where she turns them into works on paper.

Readers will discover, step-by-step, how Geninne selects her materials and then creates her personal imagery. What makes Geninne’s work so successful is her imaginative and colorful interpretation of the birds she has observed so closely. Her work is approachable, and her fans will love to see how she does it, so that they can try it too.

To get them started, the book will include a selection of collage papers, as well as two Geninne prints that can be removed from the book. Geninne brings a wide and ready audience with her to this project.

Geninne D Zlatkis is an artist living in sunny Santa Fe, New Mexico, with her husband, two teenage sons, and a cute red-heeler-mix named Zorro. Geninne’s art draws inspiration from the natural world. Focused on birds and native plants, her work is a charming blend of close observation with colorful imagination in watercolor, collage, ink, and pencil. She designs a home decor line for Hallmark, an avian calendar and gift line for Galison, and has published one book, Making an Impression, with Lark, in 2012. Geninne’s huge fan base follows her art activities and nature photography on her blog, Geninne’s Art Blog.

Bits and Pieces of Love: Art by Samuel Price

West Coast artist, Samuel Price has the perfect holiday gift for pet lovers worldwide. If you have a dog or know dog lovers like me, you know they have tons and tons of dog things and their lives and schedule’s pretty much revolve around their dog!  Price creates custom portraits by assembling hundreds of hand-cut, recycled magazine squares onto canvas.
 
He takes photography that clients send him as a reference point and go from there. They are such beautiful pieces of art and they would be a great piece for a home, office or vet clinic! His goal is to capture the individual personality and spirit of the animals featured. I would love to get one of Jacob!

Artist Samuel Price

 Each pixelated collage takes between 6-12 weeks to create and range between $700-$4000 depending on size and complexity of the piece.
