Photo Give Away

And the winner is: VOODOOKITTEN
CONGRATULATIONS!!


When I was approached be Amanda to do a Feature/Give Away for her shop
NerdyGrrl Arts I was thrilled! She takes amazing photos of a variety of subjects! They are amazing.


*Where are you from? Tell us a bit about yourself.

After living in several extremely varied locales, I've settled down in Durham, NC, a very creative city in the Piedmont region of the state. I'm a preschool art teacher by day, and a crafter/artist by night. Having an outlet for my creativity is very important to me, so teaching technique to kids is one of the best jobs that I can imagine!

*How did you decide on your shop name? Why did you start your business?
I decided to sell on Etsy because I thought it might be nice to make some extra money doing something that I love! I picked "Nerdygrrl" because I felt that it best described myself and my target customer; ie, someone who is "a little off" and loves camp, geekery, and laughing.

*What types of items do you have? Do you have something new you will be adding?
I currently have my shop full of original photography and ready-to-hang paintings. I plan to expand to include knitted scarves and possibly jewelry within the next six months.

*What do you like about being a seller?
I love being part of such a diverse, creative group of Etsy sellers. I've met a lot of cool folks through the site!

*What’s your supply addiction; is there a specific color or type of supply you just can’t pass up?
I love anything blue or green. On a less traditional note, I like skull and zombie imagery.

*Do you have a blog?
Not right now, but you can find more of my work at http://flickr.com/photos/maimakoa.

*What motivates or inspires you to create?
B-movies, Quentin Tarentino, campy, punky stuff...the joy that creating brings to my young students, and the amazing connection that people can find through their artwork.

*What is your favorite on-line shop?
Other than Etsy, I love Lakeshore Learning (www.lakeshorelearning.com) for art supplies for my preschool kiddos, and K2TOG, an independent yarn shop in California (www.k2togonline.com). I try to buy most of my other supplies through locally-owned, independent vendors.

*Which item in your shop did you enjoy making the most and why?
My favorite is "Killer Zombie Sheep Attack!" The movie that was the inspiration for the photo, "Black Sheep," was the beginning of a very unique and fun family tradition of watching a campy horror comedy movie together on Thanksgiving day. Every time I look at the photo, I am reminded of that tradition and the fun that we have had picking out and watching the movie together. :)

NOW FOR THE GIVE AWAY!
NerdyGrrl Arts will be sending one lucky person their choice of an 8x10 print from her shop!
