It’s Still Summer at Farm Share Studio


Like the heirloom seed packets that get us through the midwinter blues, Farm Share Studio brings the intense color and flavor of high summer indoors all year round. Farm Share Studio is a project developed by Laura Shore to promote local foods and the farmers who make it possible. Laura paints small, closely observed “produce portraits” of local fruits and vegetables against richly colored backgrounds. She offers cards and prints for sale on her Etsy shop: FarmShareStudio. On her blog, she explores the intersection of farms, food, and the preservation of the agricultural landscape.


An early advocate of digital printing, Laura has worked with Mike Marino of Clifton Park to produce her cards and canvas prints. Digital printing allows artists and start ups to get their work published quickly and with minimal expense. Because there’s no inventory, there’s no waste and you print just what’s needed. “Digital printing allows me to test products and concepts quickly, with minimal investment,” says Shore. “I was thrilled to see that Mike’s standard paper is Mohawk Chromolux for cards and Mohawk Options for A-6 envelopes. I knew that if he had such good taste in paper that he would do a great job on the printing . . . which he did!!”
