Everyone is invited to stop by the stores and see all the wonderful products and designs. And of course buying a little something on your way through is always encouraged LOL
The first featured artist is listed below, along with her answers to what will be a standard form "quiz". While the questions may be standard, I'm looking forward to everyone's individual answers.
So without further ado, I give you Shopaholic!
What is your store name and why did you choose it?
Shopaholic Chick is my main store – and I actually hate to shop – I was sitting there trying to come up with a name and talking about someone who shops a lot – and I don’t remember if I said it or someone else said “she is such a shopaholic” and well a store was born!
Where does your inspiration come from?
Everywhere – it could be something I see – something someone says – something on TV – a dream I have – something that comes out of the toddlers mouth when I am babysitting him – something online I see – a magazine article – pretty much anything – which is why I have over 10,000 designs LOL
What mediums do you work with the most and why?
Not sure what you mean by what mediums? All my art is online – although I have painted in the past I haven’t recently – and I have written a lot of poetry but not much recently. I do spend my day in a lot of websites and programs – I use photoshop pretty much exclusively for my designs, I take photographs of anything and everything which often serve as inspiration – so I don’t forget the moment to remind me – sometimes I even use my cell phone camera to catch the moment. I also use facebook, blogger, wordpress, posterous & twitter many times throughout the day – to get the word out on my shops – I organize everything through outlook – it handles my to do list – emails and it even gives me post it notes!
Has art always been a focus in you life?
Yes – my grandfather was a professional artist – he used to draw the yellow pages – as a kid I remember drawing on sheets of paper with different sizes of squares and rectangles outlined on them – they were his leftover sheets LOL - and my mother went back to college while I was in school and used to bring me to her art classes with her – she is now an art teacher
What would be the best way to describe you art to someone who has never seen it before?
Random – I have everything from photography to cartoons – and right now I am working on 2 new shops – one in a kawaii style the other in a graffiti style
Where would you like to see your art and your store at in the next five years?
Paying my bills completely so I can buy a house and be able to afford to travel again – I miss having the money to travel
If you had to pick one piece and throw all the rest away, what would it be and why?
That is really hard – if I had a run away best seller I would most likely pick that one LOL but I don’t…so I really cant choose
And, finally, if you could recommend someone else to take this quiz, who would it be and why?
