Summer is such a wonderful time of growth, creativity, and change. As a Leo, I always feel a colorful, excited energy within me in the summertime.
This summer, I had the opportunity to really change things up creatively, more than I ever have. Paige Poppe Art is growing, and I am proud to announce our second studio location!
Jake and I were both presented with opportunities in Minneapolis at the beginning of this year. After visiting, we fell in love with the city and the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District, and knew we couldn't pass this up!
I also have a ton of family in the Twin Cities because my Mom is originally from here, so it has been a wonderful summer spending time with family, setting up this 2nd studio, and enjoying Minnesota's beautiful weather and lakes.
As my business is growing, which I am so grateful for, I became very excited for the ability to serve a wider part of the country.
You may be wondering, will you still work in Arizona and serve that area?
The answer is YES!
I will maintain 2 working studio spaces, including my original "Desert Studio" located in Scottsdale, Arizona.
You will also continue to find me at local Arizona art markets + art festivals! I will kick off the fall + holiday season at:
"The Fountain Festival" Fountain Hills' Fine Art Show
on November 10th, 11th, and 12th, 2017
"Phoenix Flea" at Heritage Square
on November 25th, 2017
More fall + holiday shows and markets to be announced as the season continues!
Also, all online orders will continue to ship from Scottsdale, Arizona. I am very excited to have a reliable Fulfillment Assistant working with me on this. He loves post office runs! Your orders will continue to ship out in a timely matter - often shipped same or next day!
It feels so great to finally share this news with you! Since setting up my "Midwest Studio" space, I have been working here throughout the summer. So many new paintings + product designs have been coming out of me here, that I am really looking forward to sharing with you.
I plan to be a little more transparent than usual with these new releases coming for fall and holiday. I want to share more of the creation process with you so that you can get excited along with me throughout the design phase. I think that will make the design releases that much more exciting.
You can also expect videos + a studio tour to come from my "Midwest Studio" space. You're getting double the fun!
Of course I can't finish this letter without saying thank you. Your continued excitement for my art, sharing, tagging, and commenting helped me get to this place, and I don't take that for granted.
In return, I can promise to continue painting, creating, sharing, and showing up each day to hopefully spread a bit of color + magic to your every day.
Here's to new inspiration, two beautiful landscapes, and a girl that needs to go shopping for a winter coat 😉
Thank you again + talk soon!
P.S. You know I love hearing from you! Please feel free to leave a comment and say hello
