How My Art Glows In The Dark

I looove glow-in-the-dark art but it was not my own idea to create such art. I only ever wanted to paint dots (and have been doing it for 6 and a half years)! My boss at the time (best friend now) has said it a couple of times how good it would be to sell glowing art! I used to work at a gallery and we sold more than 120 artists’ work but none of them were luminescent.

So one day I decided to try dot painting and when I went into the art supply store to buy some acrylic paints I saw that there are also glow-in-the-dark paints so I bought a few shades! I didn’t have much money at the time but I looved the fact that when the lights were off my paintings would come alive!

I never imagined what happened in the store when I started selling these pieces, telling customers of all ages that my jewels, paintings, fridge magnets and stones glow when they switch the lights off! No matter how young or old these lovely people may have been, they all turned into little children and couldn’t wait to see the magic in action!

At first I tried to take photos of my art in the dark and then showed customers the glowing photos in my phone. That was very convincing but I wished for them to see my paintings “live” so I bought a large black box with a lid and only 1 small round hole on the side of it.

The experience was magical! I was so excited and happy to make other people play like children and they seemed to completely forget the outside world and were fully engaged in the present moment! That is the best gift I received from my lovely customers!
