Join the Etsy Christmas In July team as we celebrate September – New Arrivals.

Linda from LazyYVintage says:

I kind of have a thing for green glass. I found this at an estate sale in Ringwood, IL He was gentleman farmer, and a great a collector of vintage and antiques for the house and barn. So, this piece and another vase are for the shop; the other pieces I’m not ready to part with yet!

Niatta from NiattaCrochet says:

These fibers were crocheted in rug a long time ago by me, on my early days of craftsmanship. It was too tensed (small hook) and with no technique in changing rows and colors, had never been used, was stored untouched. During this summer and after my present experience I decided to unravel it and this is my new addition to my carpet section.

Candy Rauber from WickedlyCreative says:

I love art dolls and Halloween so a zombie art doll is the perfect creation for me. I design my own patterns and I love to hunt for vintage findings such as buttons, keys, gears, nails, etc to be the perfect accent for each doll. I hand dyed and print my own fabrics to make each doll a truly unique work of art! Zombies can be a year round decoration…not only for Halloween!

Elisabeth Perez from LizPOriginals says:

In Austria we believe pigs are for good luck so we give each other pig related goodies for new year. When I saw these adorable pig charms I could not resist!

Maryann from gojjell says:

I love the colour combination of purple with gold! When I came across these raw brass settings, I just knew I had to create these glass opal dangle drops. Add some quality 14K gold filled ear wires and the earrings are a delight!

Nancy Duncan from EponasCrystals says:

My favorite stone is turquoise and I incorporated many other types and styles of beads as well. This is a southwest style necklace with a feminine touch.

Anne Irene Angelshaug from angelshaug says:

Since the subject matter that I want to explore and communicate is so dark and melancholic, I like to play
around with a beautiful fairytale-like look to the image. I want to “draw” the onlooker in and then let them
discover that everything is not as it should be in this “beautiful” place. I love the uneasy pairing of innocence/
cute and ominousness.

#CIJPopUpMarket #1 Shop – Anne Irene Angelshaug from angelshaug

angelshaug

1. What is the name of your shop and where do you look for inspiration?

My shop is called “angelshaug”. I have always enjoyed “drawing stories” it is what I still do. I have fun creating, I like the challenges to my mind, and also the technical challenges it makes me face.

2. How has your shop evolved over time?

It has not changed much. The only thing that changes is the artwork.

3. What do you love most about your work?

It is a medium for me to communicate to others my thoughts and feelings around subjects that I find
important. One of the subjects that “drives” me and I feel there should be a lot more focus on is the state of the planet and the destructive side of man. Again and again, we make bad choices with horrendous consequences for this beautiful planet and this saddens me more than I can say.

There is a lot of this in my work.

4. What motivating music do you listen to? Share your playlist that gets and keeps you going!        

I usually listen to audio books or podcasts.

5. What book are you reading right now and where is your favorite place to read?

Fiction, fantasy, politics, current events or philosophy. I love it all.

6. What are your social media sites?

2. Please share your inspiration for this piece.

Since I have always enjoyed “drawing stories” it is what I still do. I have fun creating, I like the challenges to my mind, and also the technical challenges it makes me face. But it is also a medium for me to communicate to others my thoughts and feelings around subjects that I find important. One of the subjects that “drives” me and I feel there should be a lot more focus on is the state of the planet and the destructive side of man. Again and again, we make bad choices with horrendous consequences for this beautiful planet and this saddens me more than I can say. There is a lot of this in my work.

3. What keywords describe your work?
Popsurrealism

4. Is this your favorite medium? Do you work in other mediums?

Acrylic and oils.

5. What fascinates you?
Since the subject matter that I want to explore and communicate is so dark and melancholic I like to juxtapose this with a beautiful fairytale-like look to the image. I want to “draw” the onlooker in and then let them discover that everything is not as it should be in this “beautiful” place.
