From New York City, “Tiffany II” Now Lives Happily in Norway

This painting, Tiffany II, was commissioned for a collector in Europe.  Below the painting is the collector’s review of the experience and work.From New York to Norway, Kelli Stretesky is becoming more and more an internationally selling artist.  This piece was commissioned by a lovely teacher in Frederickstad and it was a joy making it just right for her.  She originally fell in love with Tiffany, a flower from the Flora collection.  On Facebook, Inger shared her experience::

Stretesky Partners with Biainili



Many years ago, Kelli met her neighbor, Victoria, and soon to be close friend that blossomed into the founder of Biainili. They nourished their friendship over coffee and walks in the neighborhood while discussing art, philosophy and ideas on flying to the moon.  After founding the line, Victoria knew she had to incorporate Kelli’s artwork.  It’s been a beautiful and exciting collaboration ever since and the results are fabulous!

Now everyone can have Stretesky’s art on the new premium perfumed products by Biainili.There are seven sensationally, scented candles made from natural ingredients such as coconut and soy wax, essential oils and signature perfumes. Biainili breaks the mold of trends with the use of fine art on it’s all natural, Armenian-inspired product line, and it shows.

Scented candles can be exclusively found online in Biainili’s Fragrance section.  Collections include Tarragon, Geranium & Rosehips, Basil, Benzoin, Fig & Coffee, Walnut & Cognac, and Armenian Pomegranate.

Pictured below is the wonderful Biainili Basil candle featuring the painting Journey (that is still available).

*The Art Factory* Presenting Artist – Kelli Stretesky



Thank you, Sadia Chowdhury, for a wonderful write-up of my work from “The Art Factory” on Tally Tadka.  I appreciate all of the kind words and support!

Here is an excerpt:

“Once in a while, we tend to bump into certain people, who’s aura and charm brings in a certain positivity and calmness in our mundane lives. Artist Kelli Stretesky is one such person. Observing her work is much like yoga – it brings a certain stillness, calmness and takes you to a place where you don’t want to come back from too quickly.”

Caring for Your Paintings

There are many things to consider when you have a painting that you want to keep in good condition.  Two of the most important factors are temperature and humidity.  When thinking of the environment for your work of art, it is best to think of museums and the lengths taken to regulate conditions to maintain historical works.

Caring for Your Paintings is a great article from the Smithsonian Museum Conservation Institute.  These experts cover the most important factors into caring, hanging and maintaining paintings.  A great read for anyone who owns or cares for fine art.

As always, please direct any of your questions regarding caring for your paintings to me.  I’m happy to answer.  Feel free to contact me here and sign up for the newsletter here.
