My latest artwork coloured digitally in photoshop. I wanted a nouveau feel and my usual theme of flowers! This took several months (I'm ashamed at my slowness)! 

Also some of you might've wondered of my absense, I'd like to thank all the kind folks who've been checking back on my blog while I was sick and especially to Bobbi who asked if I was ok =). Anyhow what happened was I had a high fever that wouldn't go away for a week so I took a blood test and nothing was up; no pneumonia, no dengue fever, no cancer. Just a very bad virus or maybe a multiple of them. So far no sales (on Etsy) while I was sick, I also made use of the newly implemented 'Vacation' option thus! How is sales for everyone on Etsy? These few weeks has been quite a ghost town. I wonder if it's the lack of buyer traffic or my products are not up to par?

Hiya! Sorry to hear you've not been well, sounds really nasty! But glad to hear you're better now. :D
Sales for me on Etsy have been super-slow, and I can assure you it's not your products' or your fault, your art is fantastic! People just aren't buying from us... we just haven't been seen by the right people yet. I blame it on Etsy getting bigger and bigger, there's so many sellers competing for attention these days.
Good luck with the sales chuck.

Glad to see you're back among the living! I have a question on your piece. Did you draw it by hand and then scan it into photoshop? I've been trying to figure out how to digitally color a piece of my daughters art.

This is a gorgeous piece! I think you captured the art nouveau feeling perfectly!

Sorry I'm one of the guilty ones not to get in touch even though since last week I've been meaning to only to turn my laptop off and think... I forgot sigh!! I hope your feeling 100% better now though.

I love this image and can imagine why it took so long with all the detail in it. said...

I'm happy to hear you're better! Your illustrations are beautiful! I'm working on a book to go along with my Ragamuffin dolls. We may have to talk!!
