What, How & Why: A Closer Look - Featuring Erica Kilbourn


At iPrintfromHome.com, we work with artists and photographers from across the United States and Canada. We're inspired everyday by the images that they send to us and by the stories they share.
In our "What, How & Why" interview series, we take a closer look at some of these fascinating people.

We've asked each participating artist or photographer three simple questions:


1. What do you do?

2. How do you do it?
3. Why do you use iPrintfromHome.com?

Please read on to find out more about Erica Kilbourn.




Erica Kilbourn
Artist
Hermitage, TN

What do you do?
I'm an artist from Tennessee that paints landscapes, fantasy scenes, florals, and many other nature or magical related things. I've been painting for ten years and I can't wait to see where the rest of my life takes me artistically. 


How do you do it?
I use oil and acrylic paint on canvases, panels, or paper. I scan smaller works that fit, and I photograph anything that is too large.

Why do you use iPrintfromHome.com?
Their color calibration kit is such an awesome tool, I don't know of any other company that offers it. my works are very vivid and brightly colored, the saturations and hues are very difficult to reproduce even in the photographing or scanning process. Knowing that this company does the best it can, using the best materials, to get your image printed correctly is very reassuring. The prices are perfect, and the hospitality on the website alone is just such a great choice for any artist that is new to the printing process.

Christopher Miller
Graphic Designer
Buffalo, NY

What do you do?

I am a graphic designer and photographer, largely within the music scene. I have designed posters and graphics for many bands but primarily for Twenty One Pilots categorized as "clique art". The "Clique Art" fan art movement has gotten pretty big over the years, and my photography and graphic work have gained acknowledgement within that community.

How do you do it?
Most of my graphic work starts off with a sketch or hand drawn text which i then bring into Illustrator and Photoshop to clean up and export a digital rendition. My photography is split between digital and film, both 35mm and medium format. I develop my own film and scan it in myself as well! 


Why do you use iPrintfromHome.com?
I began using iPrintfromHome from a recommendation from a friend as the need for prints from my social media following started to increase. I realized that some of these graphics and stills in my portfolio had heavy interest as a sold product, and iPrintfromHome has made it incredibly easy for me to fulfill these orders while offering high end print quality with a variety of paper options.

I am a retired public school music teacher who is following a second career in digital photography. At 84, I am still an active scuba diver with a long time fascination with underwater photography. I am also active, and a past president, in the Buffalo Science Museum Camera Club. I teach digital photography classes locally and in the mountains of Colorado under the auspices of the Mountains and Plains Institute and Road Scholar.

How do you do it?
By remaining physically active, with a positive attitude toward the lifetime potential of people to interact with the community and their personal talents, I continue to find new ways to continue learning








Why do you use iPrintfromHome.com?
I started to use iPrintfromHome when I discovered that I couldn't get consistently high quality printing of my images from home. I have continued to use and recommend iPrintfromHome to my students because of the consistently high quality product that I can depend upon. All of my efforts as a photographer to achieve quality are very dependent on the consistent quality of the prints I can make.

Brigid Smith
Digital Artist
Seattle, WA

What do you do?
I do digital paintings and illustrations of colorful and fantastic people, places, and things.

How do you do it?
I use a graphics tablet that I have had for literally 12 years (bought it with the allowance I scrimped and saved in 7th grade) and Gimp, which is a free and open-source alternative to PhotoShop. Recently, I've also been trying to experiment with other mediums like ink and watercolor, but digital will always likely be my favorite.  






Why do you use iPrintfromHome.com?
Now that I'm out of college and into the "real world", I'm nursing the dream of quitting my day job someday to become an artist. Since I do mostly digital, I need a place to get prints made, and iPrintfromHome.com has consistently offered me the best prices and nearly the fastest service of all the printers I've tried.

Please read on to find out more about Andrea Doss.



Andrea Doss
Artist
Paris, TX

What do you do?
 I am an artist who specializes in whimsical storybook style art. My work is inspired by the imaginations of my two little girls and everything I create has a story to go along with it. I sell my work worldwide, have been commissioned by several children's hospitals, designed art for a children's textile company, have had my work appear on television and movies, and illustrated children's books for a children's book publisher.


How do you do it?
I primarily work with acrylic paints, using both thick and thin strokes to build layers, texture, and details. I usually have a lot of assistance from my fuzzy gray cat, Poe. She's almost 20 years old and considers herself to be quite the art critic. 

Why do you use iPrintfromHome.com?

Before I found iPrintfromHome.com, I had many requests for prints of my work, but since I don't have a quality printer to work with and there are not a lot of printshop options where I live, creating prints was either difficult or very pricey.

Debra Keirce
Painter
Broadlands, VA

What do you do?
I am a contemporary realist painter. I paint what I fancy, mostly still life, in oils and acrylics. My goal is to create art that invites the viewer to look closer. I find that small art does this best, and I specialize in art from 2 inches to 2 feet tall.


How do you do it?
 I use a magnifying lens and sharp tools to finesse details out of tiny spaces as I paint. I enjoy demonstrating my miniature art painting techniques. 




Why do you use iPrintfromHome.com?

iPrintfromHome is not the first print company I have used, but it is consistently the one that produces the best images. I have not been disappointed by iPrintfromHome, and the quality of prints has been better than prints I have paid much more for. I am a loyal customer.
