Meet the artist - Jeremy Gould

Hi, welcome to Stains and Grains!

My official education and work experience has been as a Botanist in a laboratory setting. I got into that field because I love the natural world, and find an amazing amount of beauty and perfection in its varied forms and colors. I am inspired by what I see around me, the simplest most natural things are what strike a chord in me. Layers of rock seen at 80mph from the highway as you pass, cold dew on your feet on a summer morning lawn, an eclipse. Our world is so
beautiful if you take a second and notice it all.

  • HGTV Smart Home featured artist

    For their nationwide Smart Home giveaway, HGTV commissioned the piece: "A total eclipse of the sun", it's a massive 5'x5' and is the centerpiece of whatever room it's in.

  • Smart Home Giveaway, Raleigh NC

    This piece brought me a ton of attention, i've now recreated it multiple times in various sizes, along with sunsets and sunrises in over 30 color palettes

  • Sunsets and eclipses

    and you can shop for this piece and all my other eclipses and sunsets in this collection:


Review of "Metro Pulse"

"I can't say enough about our custom made piece!

Jeremy was amazing to work with - he communicates in advance about every single step in the process and guides you through the choices you need to make. He was so helpful in working with us and figuring out the exact design and color of the piece for our space. It arrived on time, impeccably packaged and perfect. It looks perfect on the wall, as if
it was always meant to be there. We absolutely love it!"

Jeremy was very communicative during the process, and the item shipped in perfect condition in a timely fashion. I couldn’t be happier and I recommend Jeremy‘s work to anyone and everyone!"

Review of "Blue September"

Tracy on May 30, 2021

5 out of 5 stars

Words and pictures can truly not do this piece justice. The meticulous attention to detail, quality, and effort put into making it was evident the moment I opened the box. Not only is this art one of a kind, so is the creator, Jeremy. He was a joy to work with on my custom sized piece of ‘Blue September'. He communicated with me regularly and made the whole experience of buying a work of art like this, one of a kind. He really cares about the satisfaction of each and every person buying his art. You can definitely tell he LOVES what he does and that makes all the difference.

If you are on the fence on getting 3D, DO IT! The piece pops on my living room wall and makes me smile every time I walk into the room. I already have my eye on more pieces of his and will be buying more in the future!
