I'm Steve Bunce - the owner of ThePreciousPast, a Etsy shop producing fine art prints, giclee prints, and gallery wrapped canvas prints from either my images, or yours. I'm a full time sales and marketing professional by day, and work on my shop in my other available time, which at times, can be into the wee hours.

Having worked in the sales and marketing discipline of a major trade association that represents the home building industry, I have worked with some of the best and brightest architects, interior merchandisers, interior designs, builders, and developers in the country.

A few years back when I built a new kitchen addition to my home, I discovered the huge impact that great design has on our everyday lives--the myriad of design options was mesmerizing, and a lot of fun at the same time. I was fortunate enough to have befriended some amazing talent that we put to work.

After this project my eyes were wide open for great design. I needed some new artwork in some other rooms in my home, and, the rest is history. I started ThePreciousPast in 2015 and haven't looked back once. I thoroughly enjoy seeing my prints shipped all over the world bringing joy, and improving the lifestyle of my customers.

I have no doubt that you are finding my unique, affordable art prints a treasure for the eyes, and I don't want us to lose our connection. I want you to continue to receive my excellent tips, tools, and know how when it comes to improving your lifestyle with affordable fine art prints.
