Today I am so excited to introduce you to the artist Lanie Wurzel. Lanie is an artist and teacher living and working in Cambridge, MA.
Lanie has found successes outside of the traditional gallery sphere. In 2011, she started working with the online start-up www.20x200.com, which sells high-quality archival prints of her work. It was through this venue that a design director at Kate Spade saw her painting “My Butt” and asked Helena to paint an ad campaign for the promotion of their new Saturday line. Helena worked with the company from their launch in 2012 until they closed in 2015. Jonathan Adler, the design guru, saw her work in a Saturday store and she displayed her paintings in his retail stores in Los Angeles, Miami, and online from 2015-2018.
In this episode we talk about the inspiration for her work, working with Kate Spade and Jonathan Adler, working to support your practice, being a mom and advice to artists negotiating contracts. Let’s talk to Lanie!
