About

My home/studio is in Chattanooga, TN at the top of one of the hilly ridges that surround the city. In 2015 I moved to Chattanooga – phase 1 of my retirement plan. I was working remotely doing web design and marketing collateral for a construction industry company, so that made the move really easy. After retiring in 2017, I put my focus onto loosening up, creating more from the heart and experimenting with mediums to figure out what I enjoyed and what was just too much trouble or, in some cases, just too messy and labor intensive to be practical. I guess, after so many years of working digitally or having a designated dirty work space that I didn’t also live in… I tend to eliminate mediums that require their own room (or facility). Everything has to happen in one space and it has to be easy to clean up and put away.

So, what was a graphic design office has evolved into an ever-changing creative space that accommodates both digital and physical mediums – metal, clay, stone, paper, fabric, acrylic paint, metallic mediums and, of course, digital art. And lots of shelves and containers around the room.

I work with a print-on-demand fulfillment company to produce the art prints on paper or canvas, and the printed merchandise (tee’s, tote bags, etc.). After so many years of either working for or with printing companies, and a few years of screen printing in my own studio, I am more than willing to let the pro’s do the demanding work of printing. I do print small things here in my studio but am holding out on acquiring a larger format printer. Not creating a cottage industry was one of main goals at this stage of life.

Custom Design / Modifications to Current Work
  • I enjoy doing custom work, since that’s what I spent most of my career doing, so please contact me if there is something you would like customized or created from scratch! 
  • Concerning making modifications to current work:
    Please just ask! I tend to revisit my own art over and over and sometimes completely change it, sometimes use bits and pieces of different artwork to create a multi-media type piece. That’s what graphic design really is, after all. So I have NO problem making mods to the artwork. Changing colors? Resizing? Just contact me with your idea and I’ll give you a quote for making the changes.
  • What about much larger sizes?
    The shop I use for merchandise and art prints in this website has standard sizes and products that I have to stick to. If you want one of my art prints produced at a REALLY LARGE size or in a decorative frame, I can source it to a different print shop. Pricing will be different since a more customized, higher end product may cost more, but I’m very cost conscious, so pricing will still be competitive.
    • With that said, some images were not created at a big enough size to be blown up really large, but you’ll have to ask. Otherwise, reformatting an image to a different ratio to fit a frame you already have or to fit a specific place in your home or office is a quick turn-around and I’m happy to do it.
My Etsy Shop

https://aliciaheymanstudio.etsy.com
For those of you who have been seeing my handmade jewelry pop up on Facebook posts over the last few years; my jewelry is still in my Etsy shop. There’s not much in there right now but it will stay there (that’s where the market is) and once I get through this phase of doing artwork for the website shop, (or if the urge suddenly hits me) I’ll be rolling back into making jewelry. For know, I’m taking notes, making molds, when I have an idea but I do enjoy switching gears. That keeps things fresh.
