Contemporary Artist Annelie McKenzie Expands into Licensing World
New Art Brand Launches and Now Available for Partnering
Los Angeles, California (November 13, 2019) – Painter Annelie McKenzie brings her playful contemporary artworks into the world of licensing and design. Formerly reserved for the gallery, McKenzie’s colorful impasto paintings are now available to make everyday products into best-sellers. Expressive abstracts, messy florals, along with figurative elements such as bows, dolls, and horses are featured in her designs. She is known for her loose hand and maximalist style using oil paint, chalk, watercolor, collage, and gel pen.
McKenzie’s mission is to combine the traditions of fine art with decorative craft by presenting her paintings in both the exclusive gallery world at the same time as having a presence in domestic product space.
“I am very proud and excited to make my artwork available to more people. Branching out into the licensing world is the perfect extension of my art practice. For example, I once made several “wall paper paintings” for a gallery exhibition but now hope to make my paintings into actual wall paper or other surface designs. It’s a way to level the hierarchy of fine art over craft,” explained artist and designer Annelie McKenzie.
