ART: 花chan Takes Over ETSY…

Wanting to purchase some art by Flower?

So, I’ve finally decided to create an Etsy Store…

I had been getting a few requests via Facebook as to where people can take orders for specific prints, and tbh I didn’t really have anywhere to send anyone. ‘Twas more or less just a custom order option… However, Etsy felt like the logical place to begin.

For those who don’t know, Etsy is a online company that is home to a thriving online marketplace of “craft” featuring jewellers, candlemakers, fashion designers, woodcutters and other artists from around the world. The website allows individuals to create their own shop, sell craft and items to consumers, customise their forum and develop relationships with other areas of expertise such as merchandising companies etc.

It is a fantastic place to begin a shop due to the easy managing and personalisation of your account and especially as those who search and shop on Etsy, use specific and distinctive search tags that enables them to view and search for items and craft they are actually interested in buying. Your images will come up on a feed of much related items and it allows the user to shop around and pick what’s right for them. You can tag, and label your items within the market place (like eBay and Amazon), although the presentation of the search feed decorates and presents craft as it needs to be rather than having your items being placed and missed because of a stagnant usually unrelated search feed of about 50+pages like other online store hosting sites.

Anyway, head over… Take a look… More to come…

BLOG: Flower 花 ! Where Have You Been?

New movements…

Damn…

I know guys, I’ve been missing! Well, it is to do with a number of things…

First thing’s first, I’ve planted myself back in the UK officially now, which means… New job & new home! (I miss Japan and will be returning soon – I’ll talk more about that another time).

It’s been a lot. Fun, sad, tiring, exciting – a mixture of emotions. However, it does mean that I’m back and working hard on some new projects & posts for you (and a YouTube channel – not ready just yet!)

I’ve been travelling, attending shows, visiting a lot of galleries, posting up at events but mainly been working on some new art and content for Phoenix Troy of Phoenix + The Flower Girl. My current digital spread on this site just isn’t cutting it. I’m not really a digital art type of girl – I do scan and edit for the sake of online exposure and digital prints but I’m really a hands on kind of artist. I love original feel and I guess that’s just me. So, as it goes I’ve decided to give you some more of my art (finally) and in the mean time work on my own regular exhibits to coincide with what I’m working on, for which I will be looking for other artists (one-off or long term commitment) to get involved… There will be some conditions for the main hub of what I’ll be doing, although I’m very much up for working with anyone in any medium or industry who’s up for some collaboration or projects (contact me via this page or Facebook).

I’ll be posting more information on the exhibits when it is available, however stay tuned for the usual!

Namaste – Flower

ART: Lauryn花Cheney – Exhibition with the LHR team for #isthisyourcard ?

Flowers exhibitions – April 2016

Very happy to announce that I’ll be exhibiting one piece for a series of exhibitions with the other LHR (Lauriston, Hanbury, Regent) exhibitor’s on April 21st, at The Hanbury Arms, Hackney – East London.

This particular exhibition is Part 2 of 3, where 54 artists (across the 3 Part #isthisyourcard exhibitions) will collectively contribute their own artistic take on a card from the standard deck of playing cards.

Not going to disclose my card offer just yet, but you can either come along to see what card was distributed to me (to see my vision of it) and enjoy the gallery for yourselves, or hang-on-tight for my post update on the exhibition next week!

BLOG: Have you checked out Flower’s 花 external sites?

Think your website isn’t drawing enough attention? Consider these small things…

As an Illustrator & Artistic Director myself, a note for all is that it can be worth your while spreading your content across a range of Social Media sites, not just keeping it in one place! This is not only to get the best and maximum coverage for your designs, projects etc. But, to present your work to consumers in different ways – formatting, sizing, images, text or no text…

Some folks (designers or consumers) have really no interest in platforms such as Pinterest or Tumblr for example. However, you can use your tools and brand to change that perspective and way of thinking. For instance, instead of trying to sell all your work on a Facebook community, just because your comfortable with presenting your work that way and making posts on that platform, why not consider writing a blog post about it on WordPress, making an Etsy to get direct sales, having a Gallery on Instagram and Tumblr for which you provide links to all, where and when you can, obviously having a main hub to feature it all professionally (such as your personal website).

I know, it can feel like a lot of work, but not only will you reach a wider audience – as mentioned (as some people really couldn’t care less for what posts appear on their Facebook feeds or what is lurking on their Instagram “discover” page) but it will also allow you to make good use of presenting what your doing, in the best way possible. I must admit, something like Pinterest isn’t exactly the greatest at showing off a pretty gallery, but it’s awesome for marketing, promotion and for people who are looking for ideas! This way you can post your content up and provide links to the necessary places to draw people back in to the source (such as your website)!

Anywho, the reason for this post is just for that – to show and list all of my Social Media platforms for you to check out under; Lauryn花Cheney. There you can see where I present my work, and the different views and effects it gives.

Happy Viewing!
