Vance Studios and Krespen Design

Christine Vance's medium is photographs and fine art prints. Each of her smaller fine art and photography pieces are printed in-house, matted, and sealed in an archival poly-sleeve to ensure the best quality. For larger pieces, she works with a trusted printer to ensure the same level of quality-control.

Old World Italian Alley, 5 X 7 Print:

The leathers that Grethe, from Etsy shop, "Krespen", uses fish leather combined with linen, and sometimes different types of leather for her many purses. I find it to be the most unique materials that I've ever seen, and really LOVE her finished products. The fish leather is is somewhat similar to snake skin and other exotic leathers. Not only that, it's eco friendly because it's a great use for a product that would otherwise be discarded. In case you are thinking that this is a bizarre and uncouth use of this type of material, Grethe has shared with me that besides herself, other customers of this fine leather are Prada, Dior, Nike, Ferragamo, and Puma!! How's that for high fashion?!
