Artist Edition: Holidays
ARTIST: LAGE ART
It's really incredible what you can happen with a simple email. Case in point: we were searching Instagram as part of our ongoing discovery process, and we stumbled onto the profile for LAGE ART; immediately we loved her style. So we sent her an email introducing ourselves and the rest, as they say, is history. Through this initial contact we've had the privilege of partnering with LAGE on a number of live artist demos, during which she's created beautiful pieces. In fact, Holidays is the result of a live demo LAGE did for us during a holiday market we were in. Holidays marks LAGE's first-ever Artist Edition piece, and we're thrilled to showcase LAGE's talent, for, as you can see, it's truly unique, refreshing and fun — and it even comes with its own set of lights! So whether you're looking for a decorative piece for a child's room, or want to add a playful touch to your home or office, Holidays fits the bill.

For as long as I can remember I've always had a passion for painting and drawing. Throughout grade school I received numerous awards for my artistic achievements, but upon graduation from high school I decided that it was more practical to pursue a career as a kindergarten teacher.
While working as a teacher I took art classes in my spare time and began signing what I created "LAGE" which is derived from a combination of my nickname for Luisa and my maiden name. After teaching for a few years I decided that it was time to pursue my true passion and start my own business that I called LAGE Arte. LAGE Arte was a combination of graphic design services and an arts & crafts store in Guatemala.
Since relocating to New York City I have primarily been working on reopening LAGE Art as an online business, which if all goes well will be launching in the near future, and also collaborating on some really cool projects like this one with Boundless Brooklyn!
