An etsy artist/shopkeeper interview with Elaine Kean, owner of the beautiful shop Red or Gray
* Elaine is giving away a beautiful mobile from her shop! So please leave a comment and I will draw a name on Tuesday, Jan 24th
kt: I first found Elaine from her wonderful blog where I knew her as ELK. I will let her introduce herself.
Elaine: Elaine, My name is Elaine, but I began my photo blog in 2008 using my initials ELK and it stuck! I am a redhead with a touch of gray which evolved into the name of my blog and eventually into my shop. I live in north Texas in an old home under the oaks and overlooking a wild garden.
kt: What made you open an etsy shop?
Elaine: I found with my daughters growing older I had a bit more time to listen and answer my creative voice. As I made various pieces it was a joy to give them away but also offer my pieces in a supportive and creative community as Etsy. I love the handmade movement and all it represents!
kt: What do you like about having your own on-line shop?
Elaine: I strive to create art that feels and looks gentle, contemporary, simple and natural .
