Thank you very much, Brandi for taking the time to answer a few questions about your etsy business: Sweet Harvey Letterpress http://sweetharvey.etsy.com
Q. How did you hear about Etsy?
A. Several years ago a friend of mine opened a shop here.
Q. What made you decide to sell on Etsy?
A. Etsy is fantastic for several reasons. First they are very well known so that makes it easy to attract new buyers. The interface is simple to use so listing is a snap. I admire the work of many others here so it is a great place to share and communicate.
Q.How did you originally get into illustration and letterpress business?
A. Corporate America ate up 10 years of my life before I decided to leave for art school in the spring of 2005. Earned my BA in Graphic Design & Fine Art in 2008 and after a short internship I decided that I wanted to work for myself so I have been a freelance illustrator ever since.
Q. Which products and services do you offer your customers?
A. The main focus of my work is digital illustration & letterpress printing. I also offer graphic design services and fine art paintings. Being diverse in both style and medium has really been the key in making a living as a FT artist.
Q. What motivates and inspires you to create?
A. Art is just part of my life now. I get the biggest thrill when I create so it just seems like second nature now. Inspiration comes from everywhere and everything.
Q. What are your interests outside etsy?
A. My fantastic husband is number one and family of course. Beyond that illustration, letterpress printing and marketing take up the rest of my time! Oh, I love watching TV series - too many to list!
Thank you very much, Brandi.
