About BenWildflower

Sales 2,361
On Etsy since 2012

Not much of a story but here it is:

I opened an Etsy account in 2012 to see if anyone would buy a woodcut print I made of two bluejays. This led to earning an average of $5/month from art sales for a few years. About four years later, my print featuring Mary with a raised fist and text from the Magnificat went viral while I was living overseas and without reliable internet access. A friend in the US managed the shop for me for a couple years, selling the t-shirts with that print. Since moving back to the US, whenever I make a new print I list it here and on my main website, benwildflower.com, and voila! people buy it. Endorphins rush through my brain as my work is affirmed by absolute strangers, a whole lot more than $5 swirls into my big ol' bank account, and you all get to hang up things I made in your own homes I'll never see. I have been told I am the most famous person my one friend knows. If that ain't success I don't know what is. Keep on buying my stuff and maybe someday soon I'll quit my job and just make art. I hate having a job. I like making prints.
