The YOU ARE AWESOME art prints story…

kb_inspo_900

The YOU ARE AWESOME art prints story began in 2009 when Kal Barteski, an artist with a strange name, designed a simple poster for her daughter with a strange name. Having a unique name is a gift – unless, of course you’re looking for a gift with your name on it. Seeing your name in print – validates you in a way that’s like a hug for your brain: YOU ARE AWESOME. You are capable of amazing and daring things. You have people in your corner. You are loved and WORTHY. Sometimes, all it takes are a few beautiful, truthful words next to your name – to change your life.

“I wanted you to SEE YOUR NAME and feel like a living, breathing important part of the world because YOU ARE. Suddenly YOUR NAME would be next to an amazing, transformative word: like AWESOME. Or LOVED. Or Amazing. Brilliant. Wanted. Real. WORTHY. Kind. Smart. Adventurous. Courageous. Creative. Inspiring. Mighty. Caring. Heard. IMPORTANT.”  ~Kal Barteski, (February 2009)

Since their release, the YOU ARE AWESOME personalized art prints have found homes in 17 countries around the world. They have been translated into 8 different languages. They have been brought back numerous times by popular demand. They have made TV appearances. They have been hung in classrooms, homes, universities, prisons and hospitals. Brené Brown is a fan! They have touched hearts, inspired dreams and spanned generations. These humble art prints are a testament to just how important it is to feel valued.

When you see your name in print YOU BELIEVE THE WORDS.
