I'm a miniatures and diorama artist from the Pacific Northwest. I'm not great at doing social media and such, but I try my best from time to time. : >
Interests
Okay, so I can't stand marketing (online, or otherwise.) I have a very distant and uninvolved relationship with social media and I only like doing it when I want to. I'm anxious about talking to strangers online and I hate how selling your artwork online requires you to be more of a social media savant than anything else. I don't have a team, I don't want to make stuff that fits a brand, I don't like panicking about shipping deadlines or custom creation deadlines or missed e-mails/convos if I take a day off. I also don't want to do create anything other than what I want to. So, I totally quit selling art and I only want to give my things away to people who would like and appreciate them.

I'm not bending over backwards to get the word out there that I'm giving away free art though, because I don't want to attract people who just want free stuff. I'd like to give art gifts to people who have been friendly and supportive first and then, if things grow organically and more people find out and become interested, so be it. So if you're reading this and you like what I make and you'd like to have something, chances are you're the exact sort of person I'd like to give something to. 

I wrote a blog with some initial thoughts if you want more info, and you can see that here: meandrousart.com/2018/09/19/11…

I'll also post some more information here in the future when I figure out how best to do all this. But if you're interested, keep in touch : >

The Fairy Ring Contains Free Art! n...n
Hey, friends. I'm going to give my art away for free! :>

Once I started sharing my work on DA, I was getting some requests to buy but I wasn't really selling anything online. I felt a little bad because I was flattered that people wanted some of my work, but I wasn't really currently set up to do web sales. I decided I'd go ahead and give it a go though, and started getting a business plan ready. That's when I realised how much I really hate business and selling! But I -do- like making art a lot and don't really want to keep all of it around, clogging up my shelves and languishing in boxes everywhere and I don't really have the time or inclination to do web-sales because of all of the marketing and business crap you have to do with that. So, as a solution, I'm just going to keep making the things I like and if I don't want to keep it, I'm going to give it away! 

If you like my art and you're in a position to pay shipping, I might have something for you. Check out my site with the things I'm currently hoping to gift -- meandrousart.com/gifts/

Brick Wall
A deteriorating wall on a building on the Northern State Mental Hospital campus in Sedro-Wooley, Washington.

Many don't seem to think twice before exploiting mental hospitals to take 'spooky' or macabre photos that rely on the histories of the dehumanation and mistreatement of people with mental health problems and/or disabilities to build atmosphere. I wanted to take some photos of the hospital's ruins outside of that narrative. That said, I don't have a strong sense of desire to impart any special meanings with this series and hope people get whatever they want from it even if it's just to be like, 'cool.' 

If you enjoy this photo, feel free to download a free copy. Or you can support me as a low-income disabled artist to help me make ends meet, please consider ordering a print.



I'm a casual photographer and don't make it my primary work. If you'd like to see some of my miniatures or dioramas, please visit my website at www.MeandrousArt.com : D Thanks!

Through a Window

Motel
An aging motel sign on an unimpressive strip of highway in Lynnwood, Washington on a grey day.

I like colors and shapes in photography and finding the interesting contrasts in larger objects. I thought this might make a fun print to add into a display of other photos or art to add some pops of color, particularly for someone who enjoys the urban aesthetic.
