This morning while I was visiting Bloesem, one of her ads caught my eye: Rachel Austin map paintings. I was smitten right away. Rachel's map paintings are layered with maps and each piece is named for a location on the map. I just love this concept!
Rachel shared a lot about her process in her August 2008 Quit Your Day Job interview on Etsy's blog, The Storque. One part that particularly stood out to me was her answer to the question, "If you could go back in time...what advice would you give yourself knowing what you know now?" Rachel said:
I didn't have any smaller items when I started out...I think it is important to have different items at lower price points for those who like my paintings but can't afford the originals."
