Custom Family Portrait from

What you will get is a painting done in a shadow form, like these ones, of a portrait sent to me via e-mail. It is done on a 5x7 plaque (circle plaque is 6" in diameter) and is treated with a coat of polyeurothane gloss. Each one is also signed and dated on the back.

You would be able to choose from pretty much any color imaginable, it does not have to be black or blue. There is a mounting hook on the back as well for easy hanging, no framing needed. It can be displayed beautifully on a stand as well.  This custom portrait sells for 15.00 and is available at http://

1-Why did you choose to sell on Etsy/ and do you sell anywhere else?

I chose to sell on etsy becuse I really liked the laid back feel of the community and that everything here is handmade. You get to focus on a crowd that truly appreciate the time and effort that goes into all things hand made. 
I also sell a little bit on ebay under the user name jens-fire-art.

2- What is your fave thing to buy on Etsy (whether it be supplies or gifts etc.)

I love to buy custom portraits on etsy. I've purchased digital photos and paintings. I just love the fact that someone else is rendering their art into a portrait. It's neat to me.

3-What is your current fave product(not in your store) under 20$?
I love this artists style of painting. It's so unique. There is something about this painting that makes me just want to keep looking at it to see what else I can find in it. I could probably sit and look at for a while. From for 20.00.

4- Any advice for new sellers?

Stick to your style. It can get hard and discouraging sometimes when you see all these different talents on etsy, but never give up cause your style of art, whatever it may be, marks it as yours.

5-And a favorite quote?

"The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time"
