About Nakisha

Sales 1,787
On Etsy since 2009

Love of vintage art and craft.

Here on Etsy I am better known as BlueDogRose, the "bunny painter" (though I do paint other things!). I also make sculpture for my Wire Animals shop here.

I am an avid collector, especially of vintage and antique illustration. I often find books or magazines that are slowly disintegrating, and it's from these rare gems I try to salvage what I can for reuse in craft and art. It's my way of recycling and preserving a bit of the past. I also collect and find many items of interest during my thrift store and garage sale excursions.

My housemate Mr. William is a musician and contributes some of his collection and creations to my Etsy shop.

Thanks for visiting!
