Can you sum yourself up in 3 sentences? Give it a go!
I am a stay at home mom who loves to paint. I started my career as a graphic designer, after many years at a desk, I left my job as an art director with a greeting card company to raise my daughters. Once I took up painting and began to sell on Etsy I realized that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life.
Tell us about what you sell:
My art is bright and whimsical wall decor for the home. I paint a great deal of art for the baby nursery and children’s rooms.
What is your favorite thing about creating?
I love it when my art finds a new home. Buyers often share stories with me about why the piece they purchased speaks to them, having a connection like that with a stranger is pretty remarkable.
Where do you find your inspiration?
Most of my inspiration comes from kids. They are so full of wonder and joy and I love to try and see the world through their brand new eyes. My best selling themed are You Are My Sunshine, which was inspired by my youngest. She sang that song CONSTANTLY one summer and I painted my first You Are My Sunshine piece because of her singing. My nephew loved anything on wheels – my first Transportation Collage was inspired by his love of things that go “Vrooooom!” I have painted around 20 transportation canvases since then :)
Do you have any advice for other sellers?
Keep at it! Join teams and learn to promote your store. You can have the most wonderful product in the world but you can’t sell it if buyers can’t find it.
