- Avoid: hanging art in bathrooms or other places with a lot of moisture.
- Avoid: hanging art in direct sunlight. While all our art is pinted with archival ink made with a UV inhibitor formula, hanging art in direct sunlight may cause fading.

Artist: Eli Halpin
Artist Eli (Elizabeth) Halpin grew up in Alaska and lives and paints in Austin, Texas. Her art focuses on and reflects the facial expressions of animals, and celebrates specific features such as paws, cheeks, whiskers, claws, hooves, antlers, horns and tusks. Halpin's paintings are created using oil paint on wood, as well as mixed media elements including acrylic paint, paper, metal leaf, fabric, lace, ribbons, gemstones, sparkles, shells, crushed glass, beads, sand, mica and pearls. She uses large brushes to lay down thick paint strokes, and her saturated, drippy style is highlighted with metallic accents. Halpin's work tells stories about the sacredness of food, sharing, living together, working together, and the cycle of life and death. The scenes she paints are infused with romance and humor, while emphasizing the instinct, intuition and wisdom of nature.
