It is important to me that my website is able to display large, detailed images of my digitally compiled artwork, and with the liveBooks Scaler website, I feel comfortable that visitors will be seeing a closer approximation to the finished art. The lightbox and other website editing tools are a joy, and using a pre-existing liveBooks template allowed me to spend the time and money on my art, instead of website development.
Doug was born in Brooklyn, New York and received a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design. After spending 10 years in the magazine and ceramic screen printing industry, he was hired by a marketing company and worked in both corporate finance and product development. In 2007, he moved to Lansing, NY and began combining drawing, painting, photography, and computer processing to produce layered images, which have been shown locally in many galleries and juried exhibits. Last year Doug received fiscal sponsorship from the New York Foundation for the Arts for the Idea Enhancement Project, which explores the use of visual imagery to promote creative thought. 2011 marks the beginning of a period of more intuitive and dream driven artwork – building on the analytical pieces of the last several years.
My liveBooks website has proved to be a great platform to showcase my work and has already provided me with new opportunities and audiences. The process of going live was very smooth and the ability to manage content in a user friendly fashion allows me to update and refresh the site at anytime. Friends recommended liveBooks to me and based on my experiences I would certainly recommend them to others!

Not a photographer, Juli’s medium is painting. Says Juli: “I don’t believe in writer’s block. Working, for me, is a process. It is a relationship with myself. If is always growing, shifting, giving and taking. It demands that I pay attention to myself and the world. What other kind of job can possibly do that for me? None other. Ever.”
Lisa Bartleson is a painter who’s work is “emblematic of architecture, composed of geometric forms and defined structure”. The striking modernism of her painting style is perfectly displayed in this minimalist layout, while a consistent brand is presented through her use of logo, which is echoed on each info page.
