Ok… so what’s so special about The Jewels of Kingwood anyway?
Here are a few more details about The Jewels of Kingwood. Technically and professionally, the Jewels are retired teachers with fine art and graphic design degrees and lots of business savvy. Creatively, making and selling art has been a joy for this mother and daughter team of artists ever since the late 1980s. After several years of exploring to find the perfect niche, they discovered there was a market for preserving memorable moments with affordable art prints. As artists and designers, who find inspiration from the events and people in their own lives, their design method incorporates special memories and turn those moments into custom designed works of digital art.
Designing and creating handmade for decades, this talented duo take great pride in the process of creating art prints and printable digital products in their home studio – nothing is mass produced and nothing is outsourced or produced by anyone else!
It’s all about The Jewels of Kingwood’s process
The creative process begins with sketches and research. Once a theme is determined, the fun begins. Specific elements are chosen for each handcrafted work of art. Sometimes this includes computerized illustrations and font choices. Sometimes hand drawn sketches are colored with watercolor pencils, alcohol inks, or a variety of other design tools. These sketches are then scanned and used as part of the art print.
Fine art painting and sculptures are not for sale in the online shop. Instead, you will find a variety of prints and printable papers as well as DIY kits. These items range from the delicate and feminine to natural and masculine. Other times, prints incorporate playful and whimsical elements. The images for the art prints as well as the dictionary page art frequently include photo editing and various layout processes to deliver visual messages that speak to the soul of the viewer. The printable papers, clip art and scrapbooking kits include high resolution images that make DIY projects come to life.
Each day is a blessing to be able to take our God given talents and turn our creative abilities into memorable and inspirational jewels. Each jewel shared with someone special helps the recipient to realize the lasting memories to be treasured from life’s precious jewels we like to call memorable keepsake moments.
