Thanks for accepting my application to join the group.
I've been a freelance artist off-and-on for about seven or eight years, though I'm just now delving into it full-time. I've had work published in a few literary magazines, but generally work in portraiture and a sort of fusion fine-art/illustration. My preferred medium is coloured pencil, though anything at hand that will do the job is fair game.
I have a blog chandravalli.wordpress.com/ and a Deviant Art page (for prints, and such) theperian.deviantart.com/ , but I'm new to Etsy, so any hints or suggestions from Etsy pros are greatly appreciated!
All the best,

Thank you for allowing me to join your team! I'm happy to see a group that is focusing on hand drawn work. I use computer programs to add text, but other than that, I create with pencils, ink and my very trusty eraser. I suppose one of these days, I should get up to speed with all of that other stuff. :)
I've been freelance illustrating for years, but only here and there. I have my work in a couple of local brick and mortar shops and have a decent amount of custom work. My goal (within two years or so) is to be able to leave my full time job to work solely as an artist. I'm hoping Etsy will be helpful in that endeavor.
I would love to hear other folks' stories of what brought them here! Thanks!

Thank you for the acceptance - I'm excited to be a part of this team! I'm an illustrator and designer. I'm young but I've worked and continue to work in a bunch of industries including children's books, apparel, comics, etc.
This etsy store is a hobby for me. Usually I work digitally so I don't get to use traditional media that often, though I enjoy it a lot! So far I've been painting miniature portrait pendants and bracelets. Take a look:
