Welcome to Funky Pickle Art, Funky Pickle Art maker page! My name is Kayley Messner and I have been making art my whole and just recently started selling my artwork this year. I am junior in college, and I am attending Chatham University for a visual arts degree full time while also making/selling my art. I have always wanted to be an artist and now I am finally pushing myself further into the art world. Most of my art prints are linocuts that I carve from linoleum. I print on all different types of paper and up-cycled book pages from books I thrift or buy at local book sales. I try to be thrifty with my art and make best with the materials that I have and never letting good materials go to waste. I also make bookmarks that consist of watercolor, markers, and pens. I love making art that relates to nature and from nature that I see when I travel. I often get inspiration nature and from my hobbies, as well. I like to create beautiful pieces that people can hang on their walls or to use for marking their place in their books. Thanks for checking me out!
ABOUT MY PRODUCTS:
My prints are linocuts prints that I print from a linoleum block using block printing ink. The linoleum blocks are hand carved. These prints are individually printed onto printmaking paper or on to up-cycled book pages. For my bookmarks, I use watercolors and water and alcohol-based markers, while topping off the details with pen. My bookmarks are then laminated to ensure protection. My paintings are made from acrylic paint on canvas.
