CHRISTINA TWOMEY ART + DESIGN PARTNERS WITH KAVKA DESIGNS TO BRING ART + HOME DECOR TO RETAIL PARTNERS: OVERSTOCK, WAYFAIR, SAKS OFF FIFTH, PERIGOLD, BED BATH & BEYOND, ALL MODERN, JOSS & MAIN, MARTHA STEWART AND MORE...
We are beyond excited and grateful to announce our new partnership with Kavka Designs, who will be launching several of our top-designs at these major retail partners (logos below) across the following categories: art, indoor & outdoor accent pillows, area rugs, bedding, shower curtains, wallpaper, and yoga mats & pants (coming soon.) As soon as all our items have finished set-up's, we will share links to each respective retail partner's site. We are very excited to be bringing our artworks and home décor items to many more homes across the country thanks to our incredible new collaboration with Kavka Designs.
ABOUT KAVKA DESIGNS
Kavka Designs was founded in 2016, when husband and wife, Chintan and Kelly, merged their interests in manufacturing and design to create an online platform for artists to sell their work. They started the company with three core values in mind: innovation, authenticity, and collaboration. Innovations in state-of-the-art manufacturing define and bring the artists' concepts to life. Kavka believes in preserving unadulterated visions of their artwork -- their authenticity -- throughout this creative process. A seamless collaboration between manufacturers and artists is made so that anyone may experience home decor products featuring real creations from real creators. We do what we love with artists who love what they do.
With today’s heavy reliance on e-commerce, Kavka acknowledges that artists may not have the time or resources to recreate and sell their work. Kavka aims to provide a platform for designers to share their creations. Through collaboration with the world’s finest manufacturers, retailers, and artists, the company continues to bridge the gap between the creator and the consumer.
In Kathmandu, Nepal, Chintan was born into a family-owned Tibetan rug business. After coming to America in 1997, he spent over 15 years working in the area rug and home décor industry. He developed a keen eye for trending designs, becoming a trailblazer in the rug industry, and effectively introducing area rugs to online shopping.
From a young age, Kelly had an affinity for the arts. Growing up around her grandfather, an artist himself, she noticed that he was happiest when painting. His true love was making art, but he saw little profit in his passion, instead opting to work as a salesman to raise eight children. However, seeing her grandfather practice his craft profoundly influenced Kelly, who was enamored by the creative process.
When Chintan and Kelly met in 1999, they shared the same entrepreneurial spirit, overcoming any cultural barrier between the two. They soon married and started a company, importing Nepalese handmade products to America. Not unlike most startup businesses, their company was put to a halt, mostly due to the challenges that needed the right amount of time and opportunities to flourish. Chintan found a career in textiles and Kelly stayed at home with their two children, later returning to the workforce in 2012.
After their combined twenty years in the industry, they decided to take a leap of faith and return to what they loved most— creating something out of nothing— and Kavka Designs was born! The company continues as an homage to all creators and artists who follow their passion, and an ode to those that never had the chance. Fun Fact: Kavka Designs is named after Chintan and Kelly’s son and daughter, Kavi and Kate, who still reside at home in New Jersey and help with the family business.
Kavka Designs also gives back. Pillows For a Purpose is a passion project in which we collaborate with nonprofit organizations and donate all proceeds to that particular cause. In July 2019, Kavka Designs began its collaboration with Habitat for Humanity, donating a percentage of our proceeds to help create housing in low-income areas of the world. Kavka Designs also helps support the Women’s Foundation of Nepal, which encourages a nonviolent society, as well as entrepreneurship for young Nepalese women.

GALLERY 13 SIGNS CHRISTINA TWOMEY ART + DESIGN AS NEW REPRESENTED ARTIST ON ARTSY.NET, COMMENCING WITH EXHIBITION, 'BREATH: LIFE DURING THE VIRUS'
We are thrilled to announce our new partnership with Gallery 13 on Artsy, as well as invite you to view their current online exhibition 'BREATH: LIFE DURING THE VIRUS,' featuring 7 artists (including us), curated by Rachel Tribble running March 31 - April 20th.
“Breathe: Life During the Virus”
Guest Curator - Rachel Tribble
The paintings in this collection of works by seven artists represented by the gallery were not originally created to reveal the terrifyingly calm world COVID-19 has forced upon us, but together reveal that journey. Presented with emotion derived from the calmness of meditation and the panicked distress of the curator sheltered down at home, this collection of abstract works presents the formlessness of the inhale and the linear direction of the exhale; the terror of the invisible and the hope of universal healing.
The Inhale: We enter the natural world with which we are familiar; water, clean, clear and safe in Christina Twomey’s serene resin constructions and like jumping into water we hold our breath as we are hurled into galactic horror in Steve Mark’s probing of serenity and destruction; these truly frightening paintings spark a query of terror in the sublime. Shane Hope’s focus on science in his 3D Lenticular and Organic Molecular works takes the inhale deeper, to the core, into the cells of our bodies and the confusion of our minds.
The Exhale: hardline geometric abstractions. Ukrainian artist Artur Horsharik leads the way with his hard-edged colors of love and compassion and gaps in space. Brad Nuorala offers familiar places; our domestic environment with his architectural abstractions that echo safe harbor in familiar places, reminiscent of being inside and Andrezej Karwacki presents linear windows to the sky. Then we inhale again, ending where we began; with water as Amelie Ducommen brings us back to calm and we explode through the fear with a single Galactic 3D Lenticular from Shane Hope and finally a brilliant green geometric from Artur Horsharik, whose compassionate work leaves us with hope, healing and a calm Namaste.
ABOUT THE GALLERY
Gallery 13 represents international emerging and mid-career contemporary artists with a central concentration on abstraction and a sincere heart for the work of contemporary American Upper Midwest artists. Curators Karen and Stephen Sugarman.
The gallery was founded in 2005 in Minneapolis, Minnesota by curators and artists Karen and Stephen Sugarman. The industrial-chic gallery in Minneapolis quickly gained status as a center for groundbreaking sculptural and 2D exhibitions. The Sugarman’s reputation grew as curators “who are among the best at encouraging and finding new talents from increasingly diverse backgrounds” (Minnesota Monthly). Over the years the Sugarman’s expanded the gallery into larger spaces, ventured into multi-dimensional exhibitions that included art and music and exhibitions that dove into the birth of cutting-edge digital and computerized art and art experiences. In 2019 Karen and Stephen took the next step in the future of art and moved the gallery to the digital platform.

REDFIN ASKED CHRISTINA TWOMEY ART + DESIGN OUR TOP ARTWORK & Decor Tips for HOME INTERIORS...HERE'S WHAT WE HAD TO SAY!
A couple weeks back, Ryan Smith from Redfin's marketing team reached out to Christina Twomey Art + Design, along with several other top artists around the country - from Sacramento to Philadelphia - to ask for our top-tips on how to style your home interior with artworks. And, we were excited to answer! So, while we're all stationed at-home during quarantine, make sure to read-up on all the expert advice provided to help freshen up your walls this springtime!
ABOUT REDFIN: Redfin is a customer-first real estate brokerage that represents people buying and selling homes. Redfin has helped more than 30,000 families buy and sell homes, has over 80,000 customers to date, has over $47 billion in home sales and has saved home owners over $400 million.
Christina Twomey Art + Design Tips: When working with new collectors, we always recommend utilizing blue painters tape to map out the exact size and shape of the artworks they plan to commission or purchase. This simple tip helps clients visualize how the final piece will fill-up the wall. We typically recommend a larger statement piece, so it doesn't feel like the wall is eating up your investment. We've found that when customers have decided to go with a smaller piece, they usually come back after it's hung saying they wish they'd gone bigger. Taking a few extra moments to use this very affordable blue-tape tip will help alleviate space regrets long-term.
We also like to get creative with configurations of our art panels. Sometimes a diptych, triptych or gallery wall of panels brings in more visually stimulating configuration to the room. And, perhaps adding textures, gemstones, or other structural elements to the art helps bring a 3-D effect to make it pop. The key is to truly think outside the box before you decide you know exactly what you want - even on color. I always love digging through color pallets on Pinterest for inspiration and suggest creating a mood board. Brainstorming 'big' and then narrowing down selections can be a very fun and rewarding process the collector can navigate with his or her artist(s). And finally, we also advise discussing budget up-front. It's important both the collector and artist are aligned on a price range both feel comfortable with so there are no surprises or upsets after you've both invested significant time in your brainstorming sessions.
We have found the curation of artwork to be such an intimate and personal journey for each individual we work with. And, parallelly, it's an intimate and personal journey for us artists as well. During this time of severe economic uncertainty I can imagine all artists (and other small businesses, actors, musicians, waiters, etc) are aligned in our mutual gratitude for collectors seeking out our work - I know we certainly are. - Christina Twomey Art + Design
In this formidable time of uncertainty, heartache and economic downturn, we wanted to share this beautiful article and little slice of positivity showcasing our business, Christina Twomey Art + Design, written by Marguerite Happe of Artful Living Magazine, which can be found in both their Spring 2020 publication as well as online. We are tremendously proud of this incredible spotlight on our achievements, which we pass along to our fabulous collectors, fans and followers who have allowed us to build our outreach to so many residential + commercial spaces, along with several film + TV sets, too.
We also wanted to extend our gratitude to the entire Artful Living team, and, in particular those whom were the main proponents for making this article happen: Frank Roffers, Publisher + Editor-at-Large; Hayley Saunders, Managing Editor + Associate Publisher; Kate Nelson, Editor-in-Chief; and of course, Marguerite Happe, the writer.
Importantly, we also wanted to thank Kate O'Hara, CEO + Creative Director of Martha O'Hara Interiors for introducing our artwork to Frank Roffers at Artful Living. As always, we are tremendously grateful for your continued support of our small business.

Christina Twomey Art + Design is excited to announce our new partnership with Kyra Tyson Photography along with our 'LOOK UP' series launch of multi-dimensional cloud art. We've utilized the 3-D capabilities of layering epoxy resin to build 6 cloud-layers in our first of many pieces in this original series. In essence, the multitude of layers allows for the clouds to truly pop-off the wood panel so it appears as if you are actually looking into clouds up-close.
Our intention with this series is to provide clients colorful aspirational & inspiration artworks that bring happiness & a sense of calm to their spaces. We plan to partner with our top interior design partners (both in commercial and residential spaces), as well as our TV & movie set-design connections to bring 'LOOK UP' to homes, resorts, restaurants, doctors offices, your favorite shows & movie sets, and more. We will soon be launching 'LOOK UP' on Saatchi Art and Singulart, as well as with Griffin Gallery in Minneapolis, MN.

We had the most fabulous week creating art together both during our mini-resin geode classes Tuesday and Wednesday evening, and, of course, I was busy creating this big piece for their downtown office-loft entryway throughout the week days.

Fortunately, everything came together beautifully, and we were all able to celebrate over a few bottles of wine & beers!

Here's a quick recap!
1. Jennifer Knight (@jenniferknightmusic) - A chart-topping singer/vocalist & good friend has commissioned us to create a 6 ft. amethyst + driftwood geode for her home.
2. Alex & Angelique - Two of our top collectors & great friends have commissioned us to create 4 teak & black resin bar stools. After we're finished, we'll be developing a river table for them, too! Make sure to follow Flight of Voices
4. A Dir. of Ligature & Mgr. of Tissue Research at Medtronic in CO have commissioned us to create a tribute piece to a friend who passed from breast cancer. Before her death, she gifted them a fuchsia colored orchid. We're honored to have been asked to create a new 'ORCHID' artwork in her memory. (Thank you John & Conny for sharing our work with them!)

8. Our 2nd artwork sold during the Summer Sale, 'PURPLE HAZE,' is heading to a great friend of ours, Mike Ledin - who happens to be a very big Vikings fan.
9. Next up during the Summer Sale, our 'FANG TOOTHED FRIEND' piece sold to fabulous friend in Ft. Lauderdale, Erin - a director at the St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort!
