Leigh Viner for Lady Gaga + Etsy + Vh1 Save the Music Foundation



The news is here finally!! I am pleased to announce my collaboration with Lady Gaga and Etsy to raise money for the VH1 Save the Music Foundation.

I was contacted by Etsy a few weeks back and was informed that Miss Lady Gaga herself was interested in commissioning my art for this cause, so happily I accepted, (of course!) I am extremely flattered, especially being a freelance artist to get these wonderful opportunities, many, many thanks to all that got me on board!! xo

"The partnership is intended to foster self expression and independent creativity by directly supporting artists in the Etsy community, and through donations to organizations that restore instrumental music education programs in schools.

Lady Gaga has commissioned three talented Etsy artists to design limited-edition posters inspired by her new album "Born This Way". And the most exciting news: Lady Gaga herself has signed a limited number of these posters! The posters are for sale in the Etsy Store, and profits from the sales will go to VH1 Save The Music.

Join Etsy in celebrating individuality and independent artists for a great cause!"

*"This Silent Whisper" prints are a limited edition of 25 with the Lady Gaga watercolor title all signed by me on the front and back with 5 autographed by Lady Gaga as well.

I just saw this on Etsy a little while ago and was so excited that you got picked to commission a poster for Lady Gaga, what an honor and opportunity! Plus the poster is 100% fabulous {but I'm biased as I'm a HUGE fan of your work}. Here's to many more fab opportunities in the future!!! xoxo
