Amazing artwork, every time I look at it I find a new (and nifty) detail. Great item, quick shipping. Thanks!

Beautiful piece of art. I believe the typewriter effect would be even better on the reproduction :)

About

TYPEWRITER ART - Ten years of typing my heart out!

I was regularly asked by people , all around the world, if I sold my work anywhere online. I didn't.

My website got a lot of traffic but I needed a way to translate this interest into sales, and to communicate with fans what I get up to on my 'typey' travels.

Etsy looked really interesting to me, I liked the idea of becoming part of an international creative community. So I signed up about a year ago. I find it a useful and easy (ish!) way to list items for sale with all different options, and reach out to people around the globe.

I now have an online shop on my website but continue to look to Etsy for advice on how to really get the most out of selling online.
