Artists, photographers, writers and creative people working in every genre have been self-publishing print books of their work for a very long time. For several years now, many artists have used the print-on-demand services of such sites as Blurb, Lulu, and others.

Lately, there is another option gaining attention. I recently learned from the fine art photography community that many who option to self-publish a collection of their work in printed book form are now opting to use Docu-copies as a new low-cost option.

“In art, the first step is interpretation, or a total transformation, meaning an indoctrination or transformation by the mind. During this process, unconscious elements creep into the work that give it its appeal and inner layeredness, ” says prolific painter Gabriella Cleuren.

Examples of her paintings, in this blog post, show just a tiny part of her extensive subject matter or “worlds” of stunning color and textural brushwork. You may view many more paintings in the art worlds of Gabriella Cleuren on the artist’s website — http://www.gabycleuren.com
