Shopping for Art Online

I'm wondering how many of you out there shop online? I moved to the country a few years ago, and now I do it all the time, because of the lack of access to good shopping experiences. One time I ordered shoes online one evening from and the shoes arrived on my doorstep by midmorning of the next day. It seemed like magic that something could get to me so fast, and I've been hooked ever since.

This geographic move also put into play a need for change in my life, and after a few months of what I describe as bubbly thought, my focus gelled on a concept I developed called Creative Consumerism tm which we immediately trademarked. This concept developed into a website known as

This is the place where our company sells art: beautiful/contemplative/brilliant/whimsical/playful/thought provoking art, and other quality, hand-made items whether it is an award-winning coffee produced by a boutique roastery, or a vitamin C serum for your face. The idea being that we get enough homogneization in our lives, and sometimes--while there's nothing wrong with shopping at the doorstep of corporate America we do it ourselves often--it is sometimes good to reward ourselves with art or something made with the passion and intimacy of an artist or entrpreneur.

In my lifetime I've seen a man walk on the moon, the iron curtain fall, the development of the internet, cell phones, a machine that can zap a weinie in 30 seconds flat, and now a time a place where people can connect and buy something as personal as a painting without ever leaving their home or taking off their house slippers.

It's really cool, and I'm grateful to be a part of such incredible change.

I sincerely hope you will visit our site, and get to know our artists and the thoughtful and beautiful work they are creating by their own hands.

Catch 'ya later.....
