The Alchemy Art Group (or Alchemy Art) was founded in January 2019 by Melanie Sayre and Sara Squires, originally having started as a fan group called the GW2 Artist Collective (around January of 2018).

Together we have created and mailed out over 50,000 individual pieces to nearly all major countries in the world, and worked with 180 different artists and writers. We now travel around the United States showing at conventions with our independent pin and merchandise lines.

Painting and magical powers seem very similar to me.

During our early creative period, we produced several books as well as other large scale projects, including Tyrian Tarot, the biggest crowdfunded tarot project at the time. All of our projects donated to different charities, reaching over $50,000 donated in 14 months.

Our company was formed so we could continue making exciting new projects, while also expanding our own horizons and exploring more independent and fresh places. We hope to carry on offering opportunities for artists and for our creative community to grow. We'll keep working hard at doing what we love: supplying smiles through the little things.

Interested in what we do?


Our mission is to pursue excellence in all of our creative endeavors, but also to engage and communicate with the creative community.

We welcome anyone and everyone to apply to the group and to join our Discord! We aim to be a safe and constructive place for people to grow and chase their dreams.

Alchemy Art Group, LLC is wholly owned by Melanie Sayre and Sara Squires.
