Art of Dion Dior

"Winter Mandala" Collection

Recently, I have been receiving SO MANY emails and messages asking where people can buy my art.  I have to be honest, selling my art has never been a high priority for me.  I have thought about it over the years, but it hasn't come on my radar...until now!

"Promise" from the Winter Mandala Collection

After exploring a number of different online shop options, I've decided to sell my work direct using this blog and Facebook as my storefronts. That way I can offer high quality, limited edition reproductions at reasonable prices. So, I've set up a Facebook Artists Page.  It's called Art of Dion Dior

"Winter Green" from the Winter Mandala collection

My independent shop policies will be simple: All orders will be processed via PayPal, and I do not plan to accept checks or money orders at this time. Art will ship within 7-14 days of confirmation of payment. Shipping will be free to the continental USA.

"Evening" from the Winter Mandala Collection

As I said, I will be selling my art direct and my plan will be to focus on high quality, limited edition, signed prints, all of which I will produce myself.   Each print will be an archival reproduction in a format that best suits the work. They will be printed on high quality substrate, and I'll offer them matted or un-matted as you prefer. All my works will be signed, titled, numbered, and packaged by me.


By producing my prints directly to order, I am able to ensure that each limited edition reproduction is color corrected to the original, and that the reproduction is of the highest quality. I do not sell my originals.

However, there is another option. Facebook and this blog, will not be the only store fronts where you can purchase my work. If you would like a glicee print of my art in a format that is a little more dramatic, such as large format stretched canvas, than I am also a member of Fine Art America. You are able to purchase directly through FAA, which gives you the option to choose your own format, substrate, matting and frame.  Fine Art America produce and ship your art directly. These works will not be signed or numbered, but I am happy to make arrangements to do so. The choice is will be yours.

"Ice Crystal" from the Winter Mandala Collection

To celebrate this rather large step forward in my art journey, three lucky followers will each win a 5x7 matted art print of your choice.  To be in the draw, simply pop over to my new Facebook Page and "LIKE" it, , then come back here and leave a comment on this post, telling me which work you would most like to win.   And, for a second chance to win, blog, share, or tweet about my new shopfronts and giveaway, then come back and leave a second comment. Be sure to include your email address so I can contact you when you win. Winners will be announced on Friday August 24th.

"Winter Mandala Collection" 5x7 matted glicee prints

As an added bonus,  for the month of August, when you purchase directly through me at diondior@yahoo.com, all 5x7 unmatted prints will be $10, and all 10x8 unmatted prints will be $18, with free shipping to the continental USA.  I'm so excited by this venture and I hope you are too.

Thanks for checking in. xx
