Grandmother Presence 

I grew up with the story that my Scottish grandmother was related to Mary, Queen of Scots, so despite not truly knowing it’s validity, in my search of empowered and mystical women, I am studying her through my artwork. Often these women in power were oppressed and/or controlled and in Mary and her cousin Queen Elizabeth 1’s case, I believe they were perhaps pitted against each other, possibly because men were afraid of what powerful women working together would have meant for them. A story throughout the ages that unfortunately continues. My pieces on this subject help me to understand the progression needed in today's time, how little we have progressed and to personally excel forward as an empowered woman.

I only knew my grandmother as the perfect Gramma. The one who wears an apron over her dress all day, the one who always had Fresca and Velveeta cheese in the fridge (I'm aging myself), the one who made me lunch and let me eat it in front of the tv, the one who let me beat her at Rummy and the Gramma who enveloped me with her loving hugs and left her scent of Lily of the Valley on me. 

I've written more about her lovely presence and how I only now can see she was also much more than simply the white-haired lovely lady I knew as a child here

Grandmother Presence represents my Grandmother and I hope she resonates with the Grandmother you have watching over you as well. 


Downloading and Printing Instructions:

Your file will be available to you after your payment is confirmed. 
You will automatically be emailed a download link for you to download and save the file to your computer. I'd suggest the easiest way to download it is on your computer, not a phone, as you are limited in the number of times you can download the file. 

Once you save the file to your computer (check your download folder if you can't find it), you can either print it out at home or send the file to your local professional printer or even a business office supplier printer like Staples! I would suggest printing the file on a good quality 8 1/2" * 11" white presentation paper or white card-stock or photo paper. I prefer Matte paper, but the print also looks good on glossy photo paper. It's totally up to you!

The file prints out to be framed nicely in an 8" * 10" mat opening and looks great framed in a larger frame like the second photo in this listing.  

Terms of Use for all Digital Downloads:

"People need art in their houses. They don't need Bed Bath and Beyond dentist-office art. They need weird stuff" -Ezra Croft.

Since 2012, creating prints of my original paintings has always been important to me to make sure my work can reach many audiences at affordable prices. I feel everyone should be able to have the choice to fill their homes with artwork that has grabbed their attention, perhaps reflects their unique taste and lifestyle, and in the case of my work, maybe even conjures up some feelings of magic, myth and wonder like it does for me when I create it.  That being said, I realize offering digital prints opens my work up to the potential of file sharing and much worse, so please take the time to note the following:

- Please use only for personal use and to print it only as intended - Art for your walls. 
- All my images are copyrighted and protected. Do not crop or alter the image in any way, including the name and title included in the digital file or use any portion of it in other artwork. 
- Please do not share this file. Please direct anyone interested to my shop instead!
- No refunds are available for digital files. If you have an issue with the digital file, please contact me and I will resend the file if needed.

Thank you for your consideration and your support of the Arts!
