Colour In Your Life- Australian Art TV Show, Art Shop and Artist Community

Table banner_v2

Colour In Your Life– Australian TV Show, Art Shop & Artist Community

Colour In Your Life is a web site that is run by Artists for the purpose of building a ‘Library of the minds of Artists’. The site enables investors, educators, students, teachers and people all over the world to have access to the enormous creative energy that is part of the minds of right-brained people.

Art and what it does for our society is incredibly important to the spirit and the souls of all that see it. Forty percent of the people on this planet are supposedly right-brained. Unfortunately we all live in a left-brain world; a cradle to grave mentality. We will only be able to change this if we can find a place where we can get in touch with the right brain of our species.

The TV show has been a wonderful tool for all the Artists that have been involved. With over forty percent of galleries across Australia closing in recent years, Artists have been struggling to make themselves seen and heard. Colour In Your Life can change that.

Graeme Stevenson, CEO of Colour In Your Life, has been a practicing professional Artist for 30 years. He currently works with the TV show ‘Fine Art Showcase‘ based in Los Angeles, and also a number of large corporate clients and many of the worlds leading Fine Art Licensing agents. As a long time professional artist, Graeme understands the many battles and trials that Artists go through to make a living out of their craft.

Colour In Your Life is a web site that, through the TV series ‘Put Some Colour in Your Life‘, will enable many Artists and viewers to better interact with each other; to be able to exchange information and ideas.

How the Web Site works

The Colour In Your Life Gallery is for all artworks – whether they have sold or are for sale. The Gallery is simply for showing the world what an artist can do.

The gallery plays host to many artistic talents, delving into abstract, impressionism, all the way to super-realism. Anything is welcome, from photography, calligraphy, water-colour and sculpture, to animals, landscapes, portraits and web design.

With thousands of images having already been uploaded in the last few months, the Colour In Your Life Gallery will soon become one the biggest Art Hubs on the web.

Listing images in the Gallery is free, and is the best way to start promoting your work. Thousands of people come looking for artwork everyday, and if it’s not there to see, how will people find you?

The Colour In Your Life Shop is for those artists that wish to sell their artwork online. The artwork must be registered with Colour In Your Life, and while it does not cost anything to list the work, a commission rate is taken upon sale of the work. The seller must also be the owner/creator of the work and be legally allowed to sell the piece.

Copyright: Colour In Your Life will take all measure to protect the copyright of artist’s work registered with the site.

About Graeme Stevenson

Graeme Stevenson was born June 29th, 1958, in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, Australia. From a young age Graeme was fascinated with the world, beginning his career by painting and studying animals, including the Australian parrots he bred.

His reputation as an artist started to grow after he obtained his pilot’s license and began exploring the vast areas of Australia, photographing, sketching and painting the animals he studied.  He then began travelling across the world to study animals, painting and becoming published – in 1988 he was commissioned to produce ‘The Atlas of Parrots’, displayed in New York, Paris, and the London Natural History Museum.*

*for a more extensive history, please head to the Colour In Your Life website.

Graeme is working with ‘The Celebrity Shopping Network‘ in Los Angeles, and  is on the show about three times a year selling his work to a potential audience of 70 million viewers. His work hangs in galleries and private collections throughout the world.


The Colour In Your Life Community is the home for all Artists. With it’s own chat boxes, chat rooms and groups, it’s just like Facebook for Artists.


The Colour In Your Life TV show airs on channel 4Me nationally  (in Australia). Since going to air, late March 2012, artists that have been involved with Colour In Your Life have confirmed that the interest in their work has accelerated, with some even selling out of their stock due to demand.


The Colour In Your Life website also has a ‘Tips & Articles’ for artists section, a Colour In Your Life blog, and a competitions page. Colour In Your Life hosts competitions from its major sponsors such as Chroma, all of which can be found on the website. Some of our art prizes have included a $5000 art set from Canson and monthly vouchers from Chroma.

(Any readers of this blog, Artist Marketing Resources, who would like to take this option please let me know–I may be interested in writing an article about your art. Marie Kazalia email: MarieKazalia@gmail.com)

ArtWeb.net Soon to Add Artist Prints POD Services

Colin Mansell, founder and owner of ArtWeb.net announced yesterday that the development work to add art print services to the ArtWeb.net  site is underway and will be ready for testing in about a month.

The primary prints format will be fine art paper, 100% cotton, single-sided, acid free, woolen felt textured, archival quality paper, printed on 285 – 315 GSM paper depending on where in the world the buyer is ordering from. Artweb.net will also be selling prints on canvas and are  looking into offering postcard print options and printing onto acrylic.

All of the formats will be optional to each artist member when they upload their image files to their site profile. The images artists upload will be checked for quality before they become visible on the site, to make sure the jpegs are high enough resolution to produce a quality print.

Artweb.net has decided to move ahead with two print partners, one in the USA and one in Canada. Here are their web links for your reference and review of their credentials and approach to quality:

As Artweb.net continues to expand globally, the site owner is currently investigating possible print partners for the UK, Europe and Australia.

A Wonderful New Artist Testimonial for Artist Marketing Resources

I worked with William Montgomery  August and September 2011. He had a family emergency and had to take some time off. We resumed working together recently. Here is what he wrote about my efforts:

Testimonial from William Montgomery

“Before working with Marie Kazalia I had tried working with a few consultants costing thousands of dollars with absolutely no results. Of course I tried marketing my work personally as well, with no results either. Last Fall 2011 Marie was able to introduce me to a company in the UK who licensed 15 of my images for print on Canvas and archival paper. They are Art Consultants working globally. A week ago she was able to get me a deal with a New York company which licensed eleven of my latest pieces for distribution on canvas in two sizes in Australia, Italy and the US and they are working to establish a company in Great Britain as well. I modified the files so that I am able to continue marketing the originals without competition. She has sent out a little over 100 letters of introduction to art consultants and interior design companies here in the US and other countries. We have an interview coming out shortly  in My Spotlight Gallery blog. I know Marie works very hard at this for me because I find emails at all hours of the early morning to late evening with questions, check this or that, what do you think, etc. We maintain very close contact online and we are now starting to converse on the phone occasionally which really helps to clarify any issues at hand. All in all, I have found Marie to be extremely knowledgeable and is building new alliances all the time. She excels at web networking, so if you need marketing assistance I highly recommend her company.”

Working with William has been a great pleasure. I have watched  confidence in his artworks grow daily. You may view over 2000 original artworks on the artist’s websitehttp://www.abstractfineart.com ranging from 1993 to the present.

Amazon takes 15% commission on most items.  For somes item, such as CDs, books, and DVD, they also take an addition $1.39 per item sold. Since I must pay $40. per month for the shop, and maintain it, I also will take a commission.

I am looking for more art items to add to my Amazon shop. Original art, artist cards, posters, Giclee prints, artist books, 3D items. I require samples sent to me to list them in my Amazon shop.

International 100:Words Project

Hello Marie,

I hope this finds you well and in good heart.

I’m a visual artist living in Ireland and I am writing to invite you
to take part in an on-line project I recently started called 100:WORDS.

It examines and celebrates loss, love, life and the passing of time and asks
people to describe the life they have experienced using 100 words or less.

You can see the project at www.lifein100wordsorless.wordpress.com or on facebook 100words
So far I’ve received submissions from the USA, Canada, Finland, Italy, France, Australia,Russia, Australia, Venuezela, Ireland, India, Lebanon and the U.K.

I’m hoping that there will be a publication and short film to accompany the project but
this will be determined by the amount and type of submissions received.

Please feel free to pass the details on to anyone you feel maybe interested in the project.

Take care and all the best,
