Interview with Studio Gauthier

I’m LeeAnn Gauthier at Studio Gauthier. LeeAnn is an urban adventuress in beautiful Portland OR. I specialize in vivid eye candy, classic cars, Cuba, pirates and oddities.il_570xn-819197070_4uyd

I am a wedding, portrait and wedding photographer in Portland, OR. Please visit my portfolio at: http://StudioGauthier.Zenfolio.com

and Etsy shop:  https://www.etsy.com/shop/StudioGauthier?ref=l2-shopheader-name

. An Instamatic 110 camera got me started photographing my adorable mo-hawked baby sister. Etsy drew me in because it’s the world’s greatest market of cool art.

Pink convertibles in Cuba, waterscapes and rainbow oddities are a few of the fine art photos I create. Pink peonies adorn pillow case covers, and naked ladies in the Caribbean make the perfect shower curtain — so sexy that a printer censored these stone statues as “sexually suggestive.”
I plan to create more original transfers on canvas or bamboo with beeswax.

Saturday Night Shopping with Pure Prana Label

* What is your name and your shop name

My name is Cindy van den Heuvel, owner and creator of Pure Prana Label.

iusa_400x400-40615561_6n4i

* How did you get started in your craft?

I graduated as a mastor tailor, earlier in life, and had an internship with a well known hat designer located in the Netherlands, where all hats were made by hand. I finished this internship with all A’s and I got invited at an art academy in Rotterdam. I loved it, but I could not see how I would ever have my own label. Internet wasn’t so far yet and owning a real shop would cost me a lot of investments. I got cold feet and started working in several jobs, still in fashion, but I wanted to be an entrepreneur. In my 30’s I started with yoga class and somehow I couldn’t find the products I’d like, it was all a bit boring to me and I wanted something beautiful and Eco-friendly. That was the moment I started making some products, showed them on Facebook, to see how people would react and… I had my first sale instantly. I loved it and figured this could be my niche!

il_570xn-1021552889_es2d

* What made you decide to sell on Etsy

I didn’t know Etsy, it is not so well known in The Netherlands, but when I was talking about starting my own label a friend told me about his friend who sold jewelry on Etsy. A worldwide network of artist. I figured this would be handy, I had no idea how big Etsy was. I opened my shop, just as a hobby at first and sold my first collection right away. This year I completely changed my strategy and re- opened the store with new products. I am officially an entrepreneur now 😀 and making income out of my creativity… Finally!

il_570xn-1014824509_6tvm

* Tell us about the items in your shop:

Mostly my items are used for meditation, yoga or relaxation, but I am heading to a home decor line as well. My products are made out of organic linen, European linen, which is very strong and durable. I only use non toxic dyes and try to work as durable as possible. All prints are hand-printed and I love using old techniques like wooden stamps or shibori.
il_570xn-1003827791_86xa
* What inspires you?

My inspiration comes from the most strange places, during the day I am collecting color patterns in my mind. I can’t explain how inspiration works actually, I think it is like a little antenna on top of my head that’s collecting wherever I am, every moment of the day and at one point… It just all comes together in a new idea.

il_570xn-993939463_bbc3

* How long you have been crafting or selling

I started at Etsy in 2014, I have always been creative and that showed in all levels of my life. I can’t remember a time that I didn’t create, invent or had ideas to create. I have always called them ‘my projects’ and I am making people crazy with it. So it is good that I can loose some of that creativity now in my products!
il_570xn-1012584361_bszg
* What your plans are for the future with your work

I am officially an entrepreneur now and I love it. Besides Etsy I have opened my own web-shop at Purepranalabel.com and I am so proud of that step!
I do like to sell on Etsy, so that will not change, but I’d like to be more established as a label, so I do think my own site will help me with this. My goal is to be known as ‘that label that sells amazing beautiful and sustainable meditation cushions’ and has stellar customer service!

il_570xn-1003829289_cuqg

Friday night finds…

I found a lovely Etsy shop with an array of handmade wooden items. This shop is  HummingbirdCraftsLLC, stop by and have look!

Hummingbird Crafts LLC began in 2015 with two goals in mind:
#1 To produce high quality handcrafted items at affordable prices
#2 To ensure Hummingbird Crafts LLC customer’s buying experience will be both a positive and memorable one.

Hummingbird Crafts LLC specializes in Pyrography, Home Decor and Gifts.

Pyrography (wood burning) is the art of decorating wood, leather or gourds with burn marks from a Pyrography tool or pen. Pyrography comes from the the Greek words “pur” meaning fire and “graphos” meaning to write. It is an ancient art form and has been practiced in variety of cultures. It is a time consuming art that requires patience and a steady hand.

Hummingbird Crafts LLC adds a unique element to Pyrography designs by incorporating paints (both acrylic and oil), stains and oil pencils into various works. This adds a creative and distinctive element.

il_570xn-1017388705_6d6r

Add a unique piece to your jewelry collection! This beautiful bracelet set was wood burned by hand with a Pyrography pen and hand painted with acrylic paints. The wood burned bracelet was stained with a rich mahogany stain. Both bracelets were sealed to protect.

il_570xn-970980638_8hy1

Add this beautiful hand painted “Home Sweet Home” Calligraphy Quote artwork to your home decor. It was painted by hand with acrylic paints and oil pencils and a quality sealer was added to protect this piece.

il_570xn-970991206_oele

Add this beautiful, rustic style wood sign to your home decor. This Home Sign with design was wood burned by hand and painted with acrylic paints and oil pencils for an added effect. It was sealed to protect. This would make a great housewarming or wedding gift!

Stop by and have a look through her Etsy shop, she has many wonderful handmade items!
