Actually she works on Etsy, selling beautiful canvas cards.
------- 1. Please, Tell me how you discovered Etsy:
From a friend's laptop skin that she purchased through Etsy. I then discover that Etsy is like a treasure island.
-------- 2. What is your biggest inspiration?
My inspiration comes mostly from photo and life experiences. I go through photos of animals and find the ones that I can connect with. Each drawing represents a exploration of my inner being. They are reflections of self.
--------3. What would you like to do in the future?
To have a home studio where I can have space to hold art classes, to work on web/graphic design, and of course, to draw!
--------4. What does handmade mean to you?
Handmade is a way of communication. It is valuable because handmade item is part of the artist's soul. It is personal. It's a gateway to communicate with the artist. It's a moment the artist wants to share.
--------5. Can you tell us about a funny experience you had while working?
In my first carfare art fair under the rain, I found out that my patio umbrella is smaller than I thought and I end up setting up my booth under a bus stop.
