Who is "Unseen Realms"?
Unseen Realms has the vision of creating a business which
interweaves images, words and ideas to reveal areas before us that are often
concealed. Whether because of size, confusion or just the massive amount of
distraction modern society produces, much of the important, dynamic and in-depth
aspects of our world remain hidden, right around us. Thus it is our hope that
our unique design elements, decorations and party supplies will add a welcome
touch to your office décor, picnic or home event.
Our concept of graphic expression, ranges
from the breath-takingly beautiful, the scientifically accurate and the just
plain fantastic. This approach has been inspired by the work of Andrey Avinoff.
His grandniece, Tonia
Shoumatoff, conceived of the idea of creating fine arts prints of his
work along with co-founder, designer Devin
Kyle Irby. Her family, especially her very talented brothers He Who Stands
Firm and Alex Shoumatoff have contributed time, paintings & resources
to the fruition of this project as well.
She then put together a team of talented people to work on
the project including Carter Hodgkin who created the sitemap for us, and Janet
Prince who heads up accounting and marketing. Some hand-gilding by artist
Rachel Krause and detail coloration and image repair work has been completed
by Cindy Franklin of DigiTouch
Studios. Joining the team is Ted Irby, with over 30 years of sales experience,
to head up the national outreach, which will include college towns and communities
throughout the US and abroad. Lidia Korzhuk of Kiev and Kazutoshi Yoshida,
President of Peace Stars of Tokyo, have begun introducing Unseen Realms into
those markets as well.
Just tap on our names to review our resumés:
Shoumatoff has had extensive experience in media and events production.
Kyle Irby has worked as a journalist, technician and graphic artist. Having
left his home-state of Colorado to become a graduate of Bard College, he is
seeking to reach his fruition as a movie-maker/event planner, shaman and lingual
We are taking a revolutionary approach to this business
by acting to create a span between seemingly disparate fields and interests.
By networking with educators and artists, we hope to sponsor new connections
for people of all ages. Our goal is to present different concepts that promote
the exploration of connections between varying disciplines and perspectives.
Both Devin and Tonia are committed to supporting projects
which have potential for increasing the understandings necessary to make peace
a reality in our lifetime! We have recently helped inaugurate three "peace
schools" in the Ukraine, which are now part of a global peace education
network called Peace Stars. As representatives of Peace Stars, we are working
to promote peace through education, the arts and environmental work. Profits
from Unseen Realms go to the support and development of these projects, as
we expand our niche of imagery, educational materials and other fine products
for the mind.
