What, How & Why: A Closer Look - Featuring Kailey Lang

At, 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

Please read on to find out more about Kailey Lang.

What do you do?
I am a Canadian illustrator, primarily working in traditional media to create paintings. Being inspired by nature, my work involves flora and fauna, occasionally with a hint of fantasy or macabre. I try to use colour,
composition and atmosphere in my pieces to create a feeling of "odd quiet" or "calm" (but I'll leave it up to you to decide whether I'm actually successful at it!). I also do some hand-carved printing work on fabric or paper, and sewing, but certainly painting and illustration were the genesis of those interests!

How do you do it?
I start with several small thumbnails sketches, until I think I have the general idea and composition I want. Then I work on a larger rough sketch, and transfer the final line drawing to the watercolour paper to prepare to paint! Occasionally I work with watercolour or acrylic paint, but my main loves as far as materials go, are Acryla-gouache and 300lb Hotpress watercolour paper.

Why do you use
Being that I work on watercolour paper, (which is similar in texture to the Somerset velvet paper), I was so set on offering archival prints with that lovely texture that brings out the quality of the original painting. I tried several local printers who offered giclee, all of whom I was not very impressed with. I was referred to by another seller on the Etsy forums, so I gave them a try. I found that both the quality and price of the prints from were far superior to that of the local printers. In addition, any time I have had any questions regarding my orders, or a new order, I have always found Sarah to be incredibly hospitable, professional and speedy in her replies. I could not be happier with the service, and customers are always happy with the quality of the prints!
