Name: Kristina Matusik aka AriesNamarie

Location: Near Philadelphia, PA

Age: 29

Name of shop: AriesNamarie: Illustration and Art

How'd you come up with the name of your shop: AriesNamarie is a name I've been using since high school - I thought about changing it but a lot of people already know my art by that name

How long has your shop been open: 7 years - wow!  I didn't realize it had been that long!

What gave you the idea about opening an etsy shop: I stumbled across etsy one day and thought how great it would be to share my art with the people who shop there

Is this a hobby of your or do you do this full time?: I consider it my second job 

What kind of items do you sell in your shop: OOAK paintings and jewelry pieces along with charms that I've designed

Your favorite item that you sell: I'm really proud of the Disney (and non-Disney) princess glitter frames that I've done recently

Something you want to happen to your shop in the future: I'd love to be able to reach more people with my art

Do you have any plans for your shop products in the future: Yes! 

If so what:  I'm planning a unicorn line including new charms, hand mirrors, and even a calendar

What is something you want your future customers to know about your shop: I really appreciate every customer!  Keep a look out for my sales - I always put the coupon code in my shop description 

Usually for my favorite item I try to pick something different from the shop owners favorite but in this case I couldn't, I'm in love with the Disney Princess artwork she has done. These pieces are incredible, and really well done. She has a talent and that's for sure! My absolute favorite one if this Ariel one, its gorgeous! It's really hard to tell that this is actual homemade!
