When did you start getting into crafting, and what did you start with?

I've always loved making things ever since I was young. Although painting is my main passion I love everything handmade. By the age of 6 I used to crochet my own doll's clothes. Poor doll...wasn't so stylish by that time. As a hobby I tried sewing, embroidery, knitting, wood carving, decorative painting, graphic design, origami, the list goes on!
Photography entered my life 2 years ago. I started photography just to collect reference material for painting but now I'm in love with photography itself.

Do you work outside of your Etsy shop? If so, how do you find time for both?
I work as a portrait photographer and I'm currently building up a body of work in painting.

How did you learn about Etsy?
I found out about etsy only some weeks ago while researching some online venue to sell my work.

When did you start your shop?
I opened my Etsy shop on Mar 11, 2012.

Where does your inspiration for your items come from?
I'm color oriented in my artwork. Most of the time I get my inspiration from color harmonies. I'm also inspired by nature, light, softness, romance, nostalgia and simplicity. I am amazed at the beauty in simple things.

Is there a certain item with a story behind it?
Since photography shows a frozen moment in time (sometimes a blur), all my pieces are special to me because of their stories. Through them I can remember who was with me when each photo was taken, I remember what I was doing and how I was feeling.

Do you have advice for any shops just starting?
I'm actually accepting advice. :)

Do you have a Facebook fan page?

Any other info you would like to share?

Use coupon code LAURIE10 for 10% off your order. Most of my items are already discounted, so you can get 10 to 50% off depending on the item.
Coupon is already available and expires 2 weeks after the giveaway.

Fun Questions to Get to Know You:

What is the furthest place you have traveled?
I've never been abroad. I've only traveled within my country, Brazil.

Which bad habits of other people drive you crazy?
Bad drivers, for sure. They drive me crazy. It amazes me how people show their real personality when they are driving.

Do you have any pets? If so what are their names?
I had one parrot named Planck, in homage to Max Planck. He was an erudite bird, great singer and whistler, hysterical, moody and adorable. I miss him.

If you could get back a lost item from your past, what would it be?
I would love to have my first drawings back.

What is your favorite food?
Passion fruit ice cream!
