Upspire is an art studio unlike any other.
We work with artists to bring their unique designs to life using layers of laser cut wood that are stacked to create dimensional works of art.
These artworks are featured in the Upspire online gallery for purchase. Users can customize the frame color and certain aspects of the layer coloring as defined by the artist.
Upspire artisans in Bellingham, Washington produce each piece to the artists specifications and ship it directly to its new home.
- 30% of each purchase goes to the artist who designed the piece
- 10% goes to the artisans who cut, color, and assemble the piece
- 5% goes to a worthy cause
- And the rest covers the cost of materials, marketing, shipping, and the maintenance of the Upspire workshop.
We support various sizes of artworks from 8”x8” to 32”x24” that range in price from $80 to $3,000 depending on size, layers, and complexity.
If you’re an inspired artist and want to bring delight and joy to people then please reach out and say hi. We would love to get to know you.
We never charge our artists fees of any kind and the artists proof is always on us and shipped free to US based artists.

Do artists need to drive traffic to their art?
