Featured Etsy Shop: Karen Faulkner Art

Featured Etsy Shop: Karen Faulkner Art

1. What is your shop name and what do you sell? karenfaulknerart, original contemporary watercolors--specializing in abstract flowers

3. What is your blog URL?

4. When did you start selling on Etsy? July 2007

5. What is your favorite thing about Etsy? It is easy to set up shop and I don't have to deal with the hassle of maintaining my own site.

6. What is your favorite thing about what you sell? Part of me goes into every painting that I do and then goes out into the world!

7. What is your favorite item in your own shop and why? Right now it is Gourd Love.
I painted it for the Watercolor Works September challenge. I usually paint flowers, so this involved stepping out of my comfort zone since we all had to work from the same set of three photos. I love how I was able to put emotion into a couple of vegetables through artistic license.
8. What teams do you belong to? Watercolor Works, VAST and Acetsy (ACEO)

9. What is the most fun thing you do to promote your shop? blogging; I enjoy it much more than I thought I would. It's great to have a place to put new work when it's barely even dried, and I like being able to give some background on what inspires me.

10. What are some of your favorite finds by other sellers on Etsy? Lauren Alexander's watercolor ACEOs, Bear Creek Pottery tea bowls, Keys and Memories typewriter key necklace, North Star Alpaca yarn and Lava jewelry. Oh, and pixelcafe for my banner and avatar!

11. What do you do in your spare time? Paint! Enjoy the outdoors. And spend time with my two children and dog.

12. What blogs do you follow? Lauren Alexander, Christy Dekoning, Lily Pang, printmakerjenn, sooziebee, VieiraGirl

13. Do you have anything else you would like to share? I am so blessed to be able to do what I love and share it with people all over the world through Etsy and my blog.
