Etsy shop name
Please describe your product range.
I sell illustrated prints of Yorkshire, people and landscapes. My illustrations often follow a narrative, are bright, detailed and friendly. They are ideal as gifts for family or friends or as a treat for yourself. They are available in A4 and A3, unframed and framed, ready to buy as a present. My cards range from birthday, thank you and congratulations to motivational cards for people who need that boost from time to time.
I started an Etsy shop because…
I had began selling at stalls and felt that putting my work onto Etsy would be the next step in establishing my business. I am new to it and love to see what my fellow artist friends are selling. I have a lot to learn but look forward to seeing my online shop move forward.
I feel inspired by…
So many things. Quite often it is the sky and landscape, mostly when I am driving up and down the M1 to my part time job. I love the light at different times of day and this will feature in my work. I am also inspired by Yorkshire, the hills, the buildings and the fantastic people. Films, travellings, music and books also make me think of ways in which I could depict a situation, character or theme. Shaun Tan is one of my favourite illustrators and Oliver Jeffers. I have some of their books that I look through from time to time for that added boost of inspiration!
When I’m working on Etsy, I like to listen to…
I have a screen plugged into my laptop, so I quite enjoy having a film that I have seen many times (for some reason, Silver Linings Playbook),running in the background or a documentary. I also like listening to Glass Animals’ new album and love the atmosphere of Lapsley’s album.
