An Artist's Life
I opened my etsy shop in 2008 as a way to gain exposure to my artwork and a way for people to find me. My hope was to one day be able to support myself through my craft. I started selling my artwork and jewelry here, but quickly saw that I needed to create two separate shops for each. It's been quite a journey!...but now I can say that having this shop has led to many invites to local craft fairs/festivals, invitations to have my work in boutiques, and online discussions with other crafters. I am now a full time artist, selling my work both here and at local farmer's markets.
