A little background: I came across this artist Facebook group question asking: "What is preventing [artists] from opening their own .com storefront. If so many of you are upset about Etsy, TicTail, or whatever site's business decisions why are you limiting yourself to...read more
Just the other day as I was working through my childhood creative wounds. I have come to realized the source of my frustration and dissatisfaction with my artwork. The reason for this statement:“It’s just not good enough.” At a very young age, I had...read more

But I know I want to talk about it. So here goes:
