Etsy Round Table for Artists

etsytips_screenshots_wpAt the invitation of Margaret Matheson, owner of Phoenix Art Supplies and Framing, at 1810 S. Easton Road in Doylestown, I’ll be leading an Etsy Round Table talk for artists on Wednesday, March 14, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. The meeting is right in the store at Phoenix, and is free. I’ve been selling my illustrated greeting cards on Etsy  – at my shop AchillesPortfolio –  for about 8 months now; so far I’ve found Etsy a good low cost platform for art selling.

I’ll start the meeting off by explaining basic steps in starting an Etsy shop for selling artwork, so if you are thinking about opening a shop, you can get a foundation in what’s involved. Then we’ll open up discussion for everyone to share tips on what has worked for them and ask questions. I’m hoping that the artists in attendance will share experiences and ideas, and we’ll all leave knowing more about drawing in viewers and buyers for our shops.

Margaret has really made Phoenix a great resource for artists and illustrators, not only in physical art supplies but also in community and learning experiences. She has always been a great friend to our group the Bucks County Illustrators Society!  There is parking at Phoenix just behind the store, and if you’ve never been there before, it is located next to Quarry Road, which is a tiny street just north of the intersection of Edison-Furlong Road and Rte. 611 (Easton Rd.). Their phone number is 215-345-0980 . And if you need any supplies while you’re there, the register will be open.

    • Hi Janette, I don’t see how to comment on your newest blog, but I really like the mother and baby painting, and the others – the three flowers in a vase & the landscape – almost look like stained glass! Beautiful colors. Your process of painting, scanning, & painting digitally is interesting too, gives it many different textures.

      • Thanks Pat! Glad you like them… I’m really enjoying merging all this media together. I actually began the “Mother and Baby” image with a pencil sketch – went and added that info to the post. Enjoy seeing your lovely fluid pencil sketches… Sometimes I just don’t have the comments turned on… Thanks for your encouraging words. All the best, Janette 🙂
