Etsy Shop: Living Aloha

Check out this adorable Etsy shop Living Aloha full of cutesy paintings that brighten any spirit. While you're at it, check out Angie's blog here. Sharing her life in Hawaii, her writing feels like an instant vacation to me.

These paintings are absolutely darling for a fun seaside themed bathroom or even a magical children's bedroom!

Beautiful right? I asked Angie one question because I was so exhilarated by her shop. What might that question be? Simple. What inspires you, Angie? This is what she said.

"To answer your question, what inspires me?  I would have to say, hands down, being born here in Hawaii and living on Maui is my primary source of inspiration.  The ocean, the colors, the scents, the sounds, the island lifestyle...everything about living here in paradise translates into art.  I am rarely without inspiration; the challenge is usually in balancing my time to devote to creating.

I started drawing and painting as a child and although I didn't major in art in college, my heart led me back.  It wasn't until 2005 when I actually begain painting and selling my art on eBay and to date, I have sold 233 paintings all over the US and Canada.  I am hoping to someday make this into a full-time gig, because throwing paint around is far more gratifying that sitting in front of the computer at work, crunching numbers and analyzing sale trends.  :)"

Makes you want to open an Etsy shop, right?
