Etsy Love – Water Street Design

11 Jan

il_570xN_379255009_aoldToday I am getting to know Kim from Water Street Design.  Kim offers a wide variety of personalised stationery including pet note cards and portraits – all created with a sense of fun and lightheartedness which makes me smile.

1. Tell us a bit about yourself and where the inspiration came from to start your Etsy shop. 

Art has been my life long hobby. I am so grateful that I have the time, interest and energy to paint, draw and create… It has been such a wonderful way for me to express my creativity, observations about life and personality. My husband Mike encouraged me to join Etsy, and the timing was just right!

2. Do you have a favourite piece? Tell us about the thought process involved in creating it and why it is your favourite.il_570xN_364418014_kod1

My favorite piece is my Personalized Just Married/Engaged print. I love the simple black and white (I want to keep working in this style) with the pop of modern color. I think it’s a romantic piece of art — even appropriate for those married 21 years. (hint hint)

3. What is it that makes your shop unique?

I am expressing myself with all of my cards and prints, and have been told I have an easily recognizable style. I hope this style stands out in my shop and makes it unique. I would have to add that my cartoon dog cards seem pretty unique.

4. What’s next in the pipeline?

Next in the pipeline is linoleum block printing. One of the first cards I made when I opened my business, was a lino cut of handbags. I want to get back to that style.

5. Tell us something about you or your shop that you haven’t previously shared!il_570xN_377370773_5i1r

My first sale was one of my Westie cards which has always been one of my most popular designs. I was so happy and danced around the house when I got that first sale. I get a high from each and every sale actually!

6. And finally, let us know where we can find you.

Etsy Love – Mayhem Here

11 Mar

We are coming towards the end of my Etsy Love series and today we meet Mallory from Mayhem Here who sells original art and prints.  I love Mallory’s artwork!  The intricate linear designs coupled with the vibrant, fresh colours is a winning combination and creates a very definite style – meaning that Mallory’s work is easily recognisable (something which I bet every artist strives to achieve!)

1. Tell us a bit about yourself and where the inspiration came from to start your Etsy shop. 

I’ve been painting ever since I was a kid, but never really thought of doing it as anything more than a hobby. As I filled up the walls of my home with my own art, I had so many of my friends and family asking for their own that I decided I might as well go for it and see where it takes me. Three years later and tons of empty paint tubes and I’m here, working for myself and loving every minute of  it. I get to stay home with my son and create fun, colorful paintings that I love.

2. Do you have a favourite piece? Tell us about the thought process involved in creating it and why it is your favourite. 

It’s really hard to pick a single piece but my favorite to date would have to be my Deer painting.  It is bright and Large (30 x 40″) and is hanging above my bed for me to enjoy everyday. I don’t know if I could even come to sell it one day.

3. What is the biggest milestone you have achieved so far whilst selling on Etsy?

Well I did just reach 50 sales! That felt good, I think it’s logging on everyday and seeing that little blue bubble on my activity lit up. The fact that so many people are liking my work makes me smile.

4. What are your future plans for your shop and crafting in general?

I’d like to incorporate more items featuring my art, magnets and such. I’d hope to someday also get on that front page!

5. And finally let us know where we can find you.

Thanks for sharing with us Mallory.  I think it’s wonderful that you have become successful enough to paint for a living which also allows you to spend precious, quality time at home with your family.  I think that this is a dream for a lot of people (I know I would love to craft full time!) and the hard work and creativity has clearly been very rewarding for you.  I wish you all the success with your art and will be keeping an eye on your shop for your latest creations!
