This print is just beautiful. Shipping was lightning fast. Two days from California to Tennessee. It got here faster than other prints ordered the same day from closer locations. Seller included a very pretty mini print as well with handwritten message. Nice touches for sure.

About

Once upon an Eggplant...

My story began in childhood, when I started creating illustrations of fairies, princesses, frogs and mythical creatures. I sculpted statues of forest fae and animals from clay found on our land, searched for fairies in the woods, made doll house miniatures from found objects and dreamed of being an artist.

Growing-up I did not have a computer, cable TV and I lived in a rural area far removed from shopping malls, sidewalks and the usual modern distractions. Instead of staring at MTV, playing video games and hanging-out at malls; I created my own world in my own backyard and attic.

I essentially used art as a way to express myself and explore the worlds I visited in my dreams. Most of my free time was focused on surreal portraiture, reproducing Victorian desserts from old cook books, reading fairy tales and exploring the woods.

It has taken 20 years (half of my adult life) to finally pursue my art professionally and I have not looked back. Initially, I was scared. I feared exposure, vulnerability and putting myself out there; so to speak. It wasn't until friends and family kept pestering me to start selling my paintings, fairy outfits and jewelry that I found the courage to set-up shop. Etsy has given me the ability to fearlessly showcase and share my art, fund my art and meet other artists that share my passion.

I am a newly single mom of two wee ones, work in Special Education and working towards my BCBA. I feel blessed to continue doing my artwork, live my life in a state of gratitude and constant artistic inspiration.

Thank you for sharing this journey and visiting my Etsy world!
Blessings,
Erin Hogan (aka The Purple Eggplant)
