In July 2012, I had recently discovered rubber stamps and had started to create greeting cards using watercolors and stamps. I started a blog to share these creations with the wonderful stamping community. Soon, I started receiving requests for purchase which led me to starting an Etsy shop in July 2015. I was very honored and thankful to all those who purchased and within a year my shop had seen enough success for me to start making more plans for it's growth. But then, life had other plans for me and I had to put my shop and life on hold. After 6 months am now back with renewed faith and fervor and am busy once again making plans for my shop. I passionately paint loose and expressive watercolors and find this medium extremely meditative. This is my dream job, I have always wanted to own a boutique filled with my artwork where people can walk in empty and walk out with an experience. Etsy has made that dream come true!
If I am fortunate enough to win this contest, I would most definitely invest it in a large fine art printer capable of helping me make Giclee prints. I want to make affordable art and making fine art prints is one of the best ways to help my collectors purchase my art . The first step to a good print is of course a good scanner to scan my original watercolors . I currently use my small office scanner to scan and that does not always stand up to the test of large watercolor paintings. A large bed scanner would be a great addition to my studio.
