These are the latest offerings from the Amy Ferrari Art Print Shop!

We found a way to artfully drape images of my paintings upon a 3D form of a human head, with cool textures added too!  Wow!

All six images are printed on archival paper with archival inks, so with proper care, they will last a lifetime!

I will be offering prints (both framed and unframed) of these Head Cases for sale at the upcoming Ferrari 500 – it’s their debut exhibition!

It’s the Time of Year for Giving… Art!

The gift of art is perhaps one of the most meaningful gifts one can give.  The right piece of art can stoke colourful traditions, nourish creativity, and raise the happiness factor in any environment.

screen-shot-2016-11-27-at-9-12-10-pm

To see if you can find the perfect original Amy Ferrari painting for you or for your special someone, please check out my available work:  Available Paintings.  

And if you are not finding exactly what you are looking for, please realize that I am happy to create a new Commission Piece just for you, though it’s not likely that a new piece could be completed by X-mas.

If purchasing an original Amy Ferrari painting isn’t in your budget, there’s always another way to acquire a piece of art…

•   You can purchase  art via a payment plan – I am fairly flexible and can arrange a way for you to pay over time.

•   You can purchase art in the form of my Artist Signed Limited Edition Archival Prints, which are printed by me!  So I can arrange to print most any of my images in a small run signed limited edition.

•   You can purchase art in the form of commercial prints, which are created by Fine Art America.  These prints come in a variety of sizes, materials and framing options.  Your entire transaction happens through Fine Art America, and I get a royalty from the sale!

•   You can purchase art on various types of merchandise, with printed images of my art on various items, such as ceramic mugs, tote bags, scarves, shower curtains, nifty beanie hats, device covers, and more.

Some of these items are available through Fine Art America, others are available through Zazzle, which is a website that imprints a wide variety of merchandise.  The clothing items – including the infamous printed leggings – are available through Art of Where.

If you can’t find the image you want on the product you want, just let me know and I will do my best to make sure the item becomes available.

Due to the great size of the duvet covers, not all of my image sizes are large enough to work on these covers, but I’m having much better results with my more recent images.

Throw Pillows

The smaller size of the throw pillows makes it much easier to accommodate my images sizes, thus, most of my images are available on these 100% cotton pillow covers.  The pillow inserts are also available as an easy add-on.   The zipper is concealed, and the same image is printed on both sides of the pillow.
The throw pillows are available in a range of square sizes:

Tote Bags

The smaller size of the tote bags makes it much easier to accommodate my images sizes, thus, most of my images are available on these soft and durable poly-poplin double-stitched bags.
The one inch black strap makes the bag easy to carry on the shoulder.
The same image is printed on both sides of the pillow and the bag is available in three handy sizes: 13″ x 13″, 16″ x 16″, and 18″ x 18″.

2 Ways to Art Prints!!!

Yes!!!  I’m offering prints of my paintings!  Whether it’s a signed, limited edition from Amy Ferrari Art,  or, a fine art print from Fine Art America, buying prints is an economical and versatile way to display my images.




 

Amy Ferrari Art Logo

Perhaps best way to purchase one of my prints is to purchase one of my artist-signed limited edition archival prints produced by Amy Ferrari Art.

I am happy to set-up any of my painting images in a limited edition print if it isn’t already offered for sale in my  Buy Original Art!  Store.  If properly handled and displayed behind UV glass, these prints will remain pristine for a lifetime.  The fact that these prints are produced and signed by the artist (me!) contributes to their ability to retain value over time. The only drawback is the size limitation of our Epson archival printer.  The largest print I can offer is not much larger than a 8 x 10.  For more details about my original archival prints,  click here!

Perhaps the most versatile way to purchase one of my prints is to purchase an Amy Ferrari Art print from a quality print-on-demand provider.  Like countless other artists, I have chosen  Fine Art America  to produce my unsigned and unlimited print editions.

Art of Where

Art of Where is a Montreal-Based Canadian company specializing in creating unique apparel from custom printed fabrics.  I’m so excited about this company because their high quality sublimation printing process allows for the art to be imprinted on the entire piece, not just sections of it.  And the flexibility of their online design tool allows for many versions of a single item from just one image file.  The variations are too much fun to come up with!  So far, I have chosen to focus my designs on:

•Leggings and Capris   Are you funky enough for these leggings?!  Oh My!
•Scarves   For when you need that extra pop of color!
•Skirts   Are the skirts tamer than the leggings?  Hard to say….!
•Beanie hats.   So cute!  These beanies come with a choice of linings.

If you can’t find the item you’d like imprinted with the image you’d like, please let me know, and I’ll do all I can to make the item/image combination available.





Blurb

Blurb is specifically dedicated to the on-demand publishing of books.

I wrote a book!  Well, actually, I just wrote silly poems to accompany my Snarkle Tart images, and turned it into a photo book!   Hopefully, you enjoy fart humour….

A Big Number 2‘ features my Snarkle Tart characters presenting different ways to talk about poo’s.  The characters are captivatingly cute; and the poems that accompany each image will make you snicker!

So far, I only have one physical book version (softcover) available for printing on demand. ‘A Big Number 2‘ is also available in both iPad and PDF e-formats.

Softcover Version     PDF Version     iPad e-book version

I have ordered and received all 3 versions,  and I certainly recommend them all!

This e-book has been submitted to i-books.  Crossing my fingers!
