Let's ask her a few questions :

About 2 years but on Etsy for 14 months.

- How do you promote your work?
I post my photos on several sites; blog, business cards, my shop name and Etsy on the back of my suv, flyers, friends, family...

- Do you have any advice for fellow artists?
Persistance and promotion and alot of patience! Just keep those creative juices flowing and always try new styles, ideas, materials, etc
