I am an Artist from Northern Ireland living in the U.S. with my Husband. I wanted to create a blog to showcase my art work and things that inspire me. I named my blog Peacocks and Dragonflies because they are both beautiful. I don't think all artwork has to have a deep meaning, I think that creating a beautiful item is enough. If the reaction my artwork evokes is pleasure then I am happy.
This is a pretty cool movement. I just participated and I feel all warm and fuzzy inside! Basically every Monday, Wednesday and Friday the good folks over at handmademovement.com select an etsy store to be the victim of a sneak attack. You then head over to that shop and make a purchase. The "victim" then suddenly finds that they have had an influx of sales. This is to help shops which have not yet established a customer base! So todays shop is beaddamedesigns and I just purchased myself a little ring.
