Minted New Art Collections

Here’s a fun video I made with Minted. I’ve been a huge Minted fan for years. Their paper quality is AMAZING. This video features their New Art Collections – which make perfect gifts for Christmas. They’ve got a bunch of exclusive foil-pressed prints that are perfectly shiny. Or if you want a more personalize gift, they also have prints that feature birth stones and zodiac signs. The video also shows some peeks at my studio and home.
