"Hey Tina, would you like to showcase your art in an upscale card shop?" I must say, I really didn't know much about sports cards or the business, but owners Trey Gratwick and Tyler (father and son and long time friends) were excited about the possibilities! They openned The Art of Sports May 1, 2021. This store features a wide selection of high quality sports themed art and photography.
My unique Kansas City iconic prints, coasters, ornaments and more, are the perfect addition to the store! You gotta go and check them out in Town Center, Leawood.
A little bit about my technique! I call it, Mosaic Painting! I begin my unique technique with adding drywall mud to my board. After painting the base color, I sketch on my design in charcoal. I mix my paint and with sponges in various simple shapes, I apply my paint. I LOVE the idea of taking small motifs and painting them large with bold vibrant color. It's so fun how these simple shapes come together into an interesting, textural piece of art. Although, my goal isn't to resemble mosaic, it does take another glance to see that it is truly paint!
