ABOUT THE ART:
We travel around the southeast to Art & Craft Shows and it is great opportunity to meet so many of our customers face to face. We often hear the same four questions no matter where we go. So If the customers we meet face to face are wondering, maybe our online customers want to know too.
These are the TOP 4 Questions with Answers:
Number one question we hear: “Do you draw all this?”
Yes, they are all original designs that I draw and paint. The artist retains the copyright of the design. Thank you for not copying or duplicating. Copyright Pam Coxwell Designs
Number two question: “Do you make all this stuff?”
Yes, WE do. My husband and I either make it or we decorate it with my artwork. The ceramic tiles are already made and coated with a special coating that will receive the sublimation process we use to make our decorative tiles. With the help of equipment and our two daughters & a friend or two pitching in, we make all the prints, pins, pendants ,notepads, and ornaments ourselves. Sometimes we have a local printer do our cards but some of them we print ourselves. Yes, we stay very busy!
Third Question: “How do you come up with all these designs?”
Some of the designs have been customer requests. Many of the designs I have painted to coordinate with popular bedding sets and then include verses that are special to me. My favorite designs are the ones that have a personal meaning to me. Many times I have been inspired while hearing a sermon or a song or during the time I was going through an in depth Bible study. But many times it begins with just a word that has captivated me. I meditate on the word, study it’s meaning and uses in the Bible and then paint the word as a reminder. Those words and scriptures are reminders to me of the One who is the anchor for my heart and life. My art is an expression of what's in my heart.
Fourth Question: "Can I make copies of this design to use for my church or a retreat, etc...?"
I am asked this question from time to time and this is probably one of the hardest ones I am asked. It tears at my heart-strings.
Why? because I love, love, love to give to people....especially if it is to encourage another person's walk with the Lord. Encouraging people in their walk with God is like breathing to me...it's a huge part of who I am. And, it's really a big part of how I got started doing this in the first place.
And also, I am honestly honored that you would even want to use my artwork in your ministry. I've volunteered in women's ministry for many many years. I know how valuable the visuals are in getting the message across to the attendees and to use as keepsakes for daily reminders from the event.
So, what's the answer??
Well, after about 15 + years, it is finally sinking in with me that if I want to continue to do this as a business I have to also be business minded and use wisdom and be fair to my customers who have helped me stay "in business'. I have so many customers that faithfully purchase my designs on the products I have faithfully created year after year. Their continued support has allowed me to do this full time (plus part-time, if you added up all the hours!) Otherwise, I would be working a full-time job and trying to paint and make products whenever I got a chance to squeeze it in.
All of my designs are copyright protected. All of my products have copyright protected sticker on the back as a reminder of this and include my contact info to purchase more of that product. This applies to all the designs I am currently selling on my products. However, because ministry is so important to me and because of all the years I've spent working with women's ministries, I also understand that most ministries have very limited budgets, if any at all. SO, if you need a design for your event contact me. It is very possible that I can create one specifically for your event with permission for you to copy onto your products for that event or I might have one of my older designs that I can tweak it with your scripture verse etc... It will of course depend on the time of year you are making the request and how far in advance you make the request, but I will try my best to help you.
