My Interview with: Maicen

Today, i have interviewed Maicen. :D

M: Please you tell us about yourself and your back ground?

Ma:I am a 25 year old school teacher with a dream of becoming a full-time artist. I have been drawing and painting since I was about 15, and started selling self-designed hats and postcards in local stores when I was 18. I have gone 3 years in art-school, and have a burning interest for design, fashion, interior and art!

M:Can you tell us abit about your work and how did you start your etsy shop?

Ma: I am mainly into drawing and illustration and have done a lot off work with this. I found etsy trough flickr ( ) and fell for the idea straight away! I mainly do prints in my etsy for now, but will soon start doing t-shirts, baby-clothes, bookmarks etc.I like my work to be girlie, cute and fashionable, but the most important thing is that the girls I draw have a good expression. I work with different theemes such as emptiness and lonelyness, but I would like to point out that this is not in a negative way! These feelings are often kind off euphoric and nice, and we all get alot of growth out of them.

M: What usealy sparks off an idea?

Ma: I get inspired of everything! I can walk around one day, and the work just pops into my head. I love when I get an idea, and I start working on it right away.

M: Please tell us about your latest products.

Ma: My latest products are key-holders with original illustrations, they are laminated. I have been handing these products out for gifts to friends and family, and now when they all have one each, I make and sell them.

Thank you Maicen :) I highly reconmend Maicen's shop because of the really funky unmistakable style that she has. And I'm loving the cool keyrings! :D
