Feel free to be inspired by my art as it’s a great way to grow as an artist. Problems can occur when people copy an artist’s work almost exactly or with only slight modification and claim it as their own, original work. For example, changing a color scheme is not modifying another person’s art; it’s just changing the color scheme. If it’s recognizable/too similar to my art, then you will want to modify it even further. Contact me if you have more questions are unsure.
I made great art in a course/class you taught. Is that now my original art? This is a really good question! An art teacher shows you how to create her art, and you do it! It looks great, you want to show the world what you made, but she says it’s not your original art. But you created it, right? Yes, you did, but you did it by following the steps created and used by that artist to create her original art. If you say your art is inspired by that artist, I think that’s the right answer and I’m good with that. Especially if you are selling your art, but even if not, give proper thanks by citing the art teacher. It’s the right thing to do.
Printing or Using My Art
Is it okay if I download and put your art on my Christmas Cards or other things?
No, that would be copying without my permission.
Can I copy your image and print it out and hang on my wall if I don’t sell it or give it to someone else?
That is probably okay and I’m very flattered. Enjoy it, but I bet it would look way better if you just ordered a cost effective print, right? See my Shop Art page.
I want to learn to paint like you. Can I print your image and practice drawing and painting it?
Yes, do get inspired, do practice and do paint and hold it up and say look at what I did (saying it was inspired by me would be the right thing to do)! If you then wish to sell your creation, go to the copyright section above and read what’s possible.
