After a year of pitching Yosemite National Park (Aramark Corp managed), I am thrilled to share that my fine art paintings and custom graphics are now featured on beautiful seven-color shirts, coffee mugs and tumblers and selling like hot cakes at the Valley’s elegant Majestic Hotel. After completing a large 4ft x 4ft) Yosemite Valley oil painting last year, my trusty colleague and fellow SEA entrepreneur Ken Crittendon suggested (well, more like insisted) we visit the stores at Yosemite to review products and determine opportunity. We were very encouraged by what we saw and decided to “go for it!”
Aramark have a mission to “enhance the visitor experience” by featuring products from exceptional local artists. True to that mission, and duly impressed by our distinct branding and professional acumen, they ordered up, sold out in a few weeks and ordered up again 🙂
Our goal is to provide an extensive collection of products (printed locally in Sacramento by the amazing EGThreads), then reach out to additional Aramark managed parks across our lovely nation to keep the ball rolling and growing. Art is to share!
This exciting account is part of my “America Bold & Beautiful” landscape painting tour of the USA. It’s fantastic that I am able to be so mobile, follow my heart to paint and yet retain my clients in California, providing follow-up services in branding and design ~ LOVE this technology!
