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


1. What do you do?

2. How do you do it?

Please read on to find out more about Mary Lou Frost.



Mary Lou Frost
Photographer
Buffalo, NY

What do you do?
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.

What, How & Why: A Closer Look - Featuring Brigid Smith

Please read on to find out more about Brigid Smith.



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.

What, How & Why: A Closer Look - Featuring Andrea Doss

3. Why do you use iPrintfromHome.com?

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.
