About Parachute425

Sales 1,981
On Etsy since 2009


“Sometimes you just have to jump and build your parachute on the way down.”

As an outlet for my creative energy I opened this Etsy shop in 2009 and jumped. I started with mixed media, some collage, a few bracelets, a print or two, and some decoupaged plates and pumpkins that became very popular. As a full time graphic artist, I realized I was most comfortable working with paper arts and designing on my computer so the shop has become digital and analog collage, art prints, and mixed media when time allows. Since opening this shop, my collages have been viewed in international shows and will be included in a book to be published in 2021. I have sold my art across the US and around the world, licensed my work to a greeting card company, was included in the Amber Lotus Calendar, "Posters For Peace and Resistance", and met some wonderful artists and customers along the way.

I have no formal art or graphics education and therefore am completely untrained and foolishly unrestrained by theory, technique, or logic. I'm free falling without a net so who knows where this parachute will land!
Cheers, Terry
