After much deliberation and pussyfooting, this last August I opened up my own proper online shop, just to try it. For the last couple years I had been selling random stuff from RedBubble and was really frustrated with their layout and terrible pricing and wondering if it was worth the money to have my own standalone online store. And while my initial shop was featured in Paper Mag for my handcrafted foodie 3d nail art sets, I was hesitant to stock anything else. I am an artist, yes, but I have been very shy about showing people what I create for most my life. Background: Only in my late 20’s did I finally post something online (a black cheesecake pin-up) and whaddya know, my art career started picking up.
