Shop Vida Artist, Tina Monod Licenses Her Art

Boldly Beautiful
Today I would like to talk about a new project, one that I have been growing for the past few months – my licensed art at Shop Vida! When someone or something inspires me, I translate that love into paint. Many layers of paint!! Art for me is a visual language. The pigments blend and the paint speaks. It becomes something to love… or what I call a tangible connection, a story made to last for all of time in various unique forms.

Vibrant in Nature
My purpose as an artist has always been to give life shape. Why, to make all things new, of course! Every painting I create tells a story with carefully cultivated details. Inspiration comes to me outside of the studio and often from my travels. My work is purposeful in that every journey weaves a narrative. When a painting is finished and is ready to hang in its new home, it communicates clearly to each viewer. Visual stories begin and form bridges, connecting a world of art collectors and appreciators to my art.

A Gift of Art
I am a Designer, a maker, an entrepreneur – forever inspired by our storytelling culture. So much inspires my work past and present. You could say that I’m an energy seeker always inspiring others and living my dreams. My mother used to ask me “where do you get your ideas from?” My answer was “which one, I have so many ideas on the go, every day.” One process simply conditions another in the business of creativity. When I see that something is empty, I fill it. Where there is a tiny spark – I shine a light. When there is darkness, I light a fire. Art is a special love and a wonderful adventure.

Opening Hearts + Minds
Art is so good for the soul. It can be entirely symbolic, capturing the energy of a time or place that was special in your life. Perhaps it was a person, a thing, or an event. It is the synchronicity of one or more of these things that make a collector fall in love with a painting. Art as a form of story is never finished for the artist. Everyone sees something different and adds their story to the layers. Building art and culture in our daily lives, homes and work environments can have such an incredible impact.

Contributing & Collaborating
The moment of purchasing an original work of art or a signed copy is full of excitement. The world of prints has a special purpose and is a doorway into the art world, with endless design preferences for decor and presentation. We cannot always own an original for various reasons. Sometimes what we want gets purchased by another collector or it was just not the right time in life to make the commitment of a purchase. Prints and reproductions offer many creative options for those who enjoy interior design, decorating trends and fashion.

Designing with Vida has taken my art to new levels. Seeing my art 3 dimensionally as men and women’s apparel is so wonderful. I find that the possibilities are endless. It is refreshing to see how a collection can go past the life cycle of the studio and exhibiting and still keep on giving. I enjoy being in the flow of creating and I also love the way that my art has taken on new life with products from home decor to wearable art!

An Exchange of Energy
Giving the gift of education and creating lasting change is important to me. For every product made, Vida offers literacy and education programs in their factories across the globe. Everything that is purchased online is custom ordered with zero waste. When you purchase my designs, you are also contributing to global impact. With my designs available for purchase online at ShopVida.com – I do not have to stock inventory. Billing, shipping, customer service and payment is all taken care of by Vida.

Design Collections by Tina Monod

I began licensing my collections with 3 paintings that for me represented comfort and a special sense of home. These were fruit trees laden with apples or plums. They make me smile and when I saw the results with the products I knew that I had to go further and see how the collections could grow. Paintings of sunflowers and vineyards were my next exploration. People really love both. A few mountain paintings from the Canadian Rockies were also added. Here are all the Collections to date.

Sentimental Journeys

true clarity and mystic cradles by tina monod, acrylic on gallery canvas 36x36x1.5 - sentimental journeys series - banff sojourns

Banff Sojourns

“Sentimental Journeys” is a series about a love for mountains. These new mountain culture paintings are a continuation from the series “Mapping the Great Divide”. The work is consistently vibrant in nature. “Wilderness Expressions” was the original spark for these images of altitude and elevation. What began with nocturne paintings, mountains and stars to wish upon, has lead me to paint uniquely and boldly beautiful, Canadian landscapes.

“Art is compassionate. It’s about life… loving, forgiving, nurturing. It’s about nature and connection. An unconditional love for the earth, the mountains. Every brush stroke is a flow of kindness, adding value to the moment.” – Tina Monod.

Sentimental Journeys

Sentimental Journeys is a collection of alpine landscapes painted with acrylics on to gallery wrapped canvas. Paintings are 24×24″ and 36×36″ with a depth of 1.5 – 1.75″ and a granite gray painted edge, ready for hanging. These paintings explore trails, both nostalgic and new. Their locations will forever be sentimental and special. This landscape series by Canadian artist and designer Tina Monod is about the beauty close and far, near and within Banff National Park and surrounding areas.

All in Balance

Spray River in Banff National Park, Alberta

Nothing speaks more to me than the colour harmony! I am drawn to the warmth and turquoise here. Part of this 3 painting harmony is finding similar strengths… unity. Unique nuances surface and the feeling of earth and sky encompass, drawing me in, keeping me here in this place regardless of the time passing through us.

So great when a canvas is on the easel! My journey into the underpainting of Payne’s Gray is creative and reminds me of my first camera, shooting and developing black and white film. These trees are a dance of their own and the light coming through their branches is playful. Makes my heart feel light to experience this connection with what is tangible and yet so spiritual here in nature. Art for the soul, soul scape! 

This is a very impressionistic painting with miles of brushwork to go. I can’t wait to bring this light-filled forest to life. Tomorrow we move onto colour. The sky sections are luminous like stained glass designs.

Light is such an important element for the photos I take and the paintings they become. This is an incredible combination of golden light and emerald shadows. 

Palette and perspective. Always good to step back and realize how each painting is a process and has lead up to painting this moment! 

Painting is a love, it is a language. It’s moments like these that make me feel so grateful to have time in the studio to explore colour, texture, shapes and form.
