Michael Buxton started his career as a greeting card designer. He spent over ten years learning how to draw and producing best-selling card lines for clients like Clintons, Paperchase and Recycled Paper Greetings.
Since going freelance, he realized that his work can be printed on lots of different products and has branched out into producing designs for t-shirts, art prints and children’s books. In this time, he’s had work selected for Threadless, Juniqe, Hot Topic and Disney, among many others.
He enjoys working in a variety of styles, but always tries to make sure his designs have a strong concept behind them. More often than not this revolves around monsters or cats.
Ok yeah – we are super excited about Spring, and what’s not to love: dining al fresco, daffodils, spring break and colorful and welcoming spring infused wall décor.
Michelle Daisley Moffitt celebrates with Serene – we love the crisp citron green and sky blue tones, while Corina Capri tells us to Open Up – with sublime red and purple botanicals. Sunflowers show us their lovely faces in Sunflowers II from Richard Silver and Peachy Keen No 2 from Suzanne Nicoll delivers a quiet reminder to just chill.

National Women’s History Month traces its roots to March 8, 1857, when women from various New York City factories staged a protest over poor working conditions. The first Women’s Day celebration in the United States was in 1909, also in New York City. It began as Women’s History Week, but later expanded to a month in 1987. Here at Image Conscious we celebrate the many national and international women artists that we publish.
From Jane Schmidt’s colorful landscapes to Lucia Heffernan’s curious and hilarious animals, our collections reflect a diverse group of talent in subject to style and technique. Erin K. Robinson brings us a collection of Black girls and women and Ishita Banerjee takes us back to mid-century shapes and bold colors.
Celebrate women in film, politics, literature and art. And add beauty to your walls with our fine art reproductions.
Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. The Black History Month 2021 theme, “Black Family: Representation, Identity and Diversity,” explores the African diaspora, and the spread of Black families across the United States.
Image Conscious recognizes the achievements of many Black artists in our community; in this Spotlight, we are highlighting Salaam Muhammad. As a teenager, this Missouri based artist discovered through his spirituality the power of art. Just like music, his art has universal appeal. Themes of love, connection, and unity resonate with everyone. With his art, he makes people feel emotions they may have forgotten. By the time he was a young man in his early 20s, he was traveling the country, attending venues and shows. His oil canvas and mixed media paintings speak vibrantly to everyone who comes across them. He can shift styles from photorealistic to cartoon illustrations. In Crown Me Lord – Woman, the artist renders his interpretation of Isiah 62:3 – You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
Find Salaam Muhammad’s artwork and all of our Black voices in our Ethnic art section.

Naomi Taitz Duffy is a painter whose practice involves examining color relationships through patterns of elemental shapes. Naomi’s paintings are made with acrylics on wood panels. Each piece is developed through layering as color combinations are explored.
Naomi was born and raised in the Bronx, New York. She attended the High School of Music and Art in New York City and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Washington University in St. Louis. After spending several years teaching primary school, Naomi returned to her art practice and currently paints full time. She currently lives in Ireland, where she works out of her home studio in Howth, a fishing village by the Irish sea.
My body of work is an expression and exploration of my lifelong fascination with animals. Through my paintings, I seek to give animals a voice and a personality, while making light of our uniquely human existence. By imagining what animals might do if put in human situations, I stage tableaus that shine a spotlight on both their innocence and raw instinct. This collision between animal and human sensibilities creates a whimsical, theatrical, and often humorous world that viewers can relate to on an emotional level.
A graphic designer by trade and an oil painter by design, I am continually experimenting with different styles of contemporary realism that balance my artistic sensibilities, technique, and unique sense of humor. As I evolve, what remains constant is my respect for the animals that inspire me, and my desire to bring a smile to the face of every viewer.
