Hi, I’m Vania.
I’m an artist and graphic designer, currently in the Lancaster, PA area.
While I’ve always been a creative person, I started painting in 2014. Using a leftover canvas and acrylic paints from a college class, I began painting as a way to de-stress. Before I knew it, painting took over my free time! I’ve also been a part of several art shows in the Lebanon and Lancaster areas, including the Mt. Gretna Outdoor Art Show (2015) and the Trattoria Fratelli Summer Season (2016).
I’ve been a graphic designer since 2006, currently working an in-house at a manufacturing company. When I freelance, I specialize in branding and illustration. I’ve carved out a niche in serving community organizations and mission-oriented businesses.
Frequently Asked Questions
What medium do you work with?
Acrylic on canvas.
What is the story behind (x painting)?
Check out the descriptions in the Etsy listings. I also include descriptions in my email newsletter, or Facebook and Instagram posts. Or, feel free to shoot me a message. I’d be happy to answer any questions!
Would you make me a custom sized print or reproduction?
Not usually, but I may be open to it on a case by case basis. Send me a message!
How much are commissioned paintings?
For now, the pricing is based on size and would be the same as what they are on Etsy. For example, a 16×20″ commissioned piece would be $187.
How do you frame a painting?
These are a bit more complicated than flat prints because there is depth to a stretched canvas. You usually need to take the painting to get it custom framed, or try a service like Framebridge. If you’re in the Lancaster, PA area, my go-to place for custom framing is Garth Gallery in Columbia.
Can you add a mat to framed painting?
The short answer is no. Mats can be applied to flat prints. Some framers may offer a border material to put around the painting to create the illusion of space between the painting and frame, but that tends to be expensive.
