Featured Friday: Andreatdesigns

Tell us who you are:

My name is Andrea Seiler I grew up in Louisville KY, but now live in the Northern Ky/Cincinnati area. I am married to my best friend, my husband and I have a house full of pets. Our newest addition is a two year old shitzu, who was rescued from a puppymill.I just joined B.E.S.T Bluegrass ETSY street team, and am fairly new to ETSY.

Other than creating things for etsy, what do you do?

Other than ETSY I love scrapbooking, I have been a scrapbooker for several years and currently work as lead designer at a local scrapbooking store.

What first made you want to become an artist?

I have loved art my entire life, I cannot remember a time when I wasn't sketching and painting.

Describe your creative process and the materials you use

I love to try to create anything new and mixed media is my favorite style.My paintings are created using my scraps of scrapbooking paper and drawings from my sketch book. I am inspired daily from quotes and poems, I love to add scripture and personal words to my pieces.

Top 5 websites you visit besides etsy?

I visit ETSY and EBAY daily as well as my favorite bloggers.

What are your favorite features of etsy, and what new features would you like to see?

My favorite features of ETSY are the treasury and time capsule. I love to watch what people are listing.

How do you promote your shop/work?

I try to promote my shop by blogging and sending flyers and cards with all the items I auction off on EBAY.

In ten years, where would you like to be?

In ten years I hope to be published, be a full time working artist with art as my main source of income, become a mother and live by sea :0)
