Thanks to all my shoppers via my MabelArt Etsy and MabelArt Teemill shops, I raised £250 for wildlife charities in the previous year, woop woop! This goes to support the amazing wildlife conservation work by Amphibian and Reptile Groups UK ; The Bat Conservation Trust and my local Devon Reptile and Amphibian Group.
I have made A6 greetings cards of my Winter Solstice Frogs and Toads Sweet Dumpling Party; Skateboarding Frogs and Toads at Devon beaches; Avocets; Tiger Chinese brush painting; Chinese Zodiac animals admiring the moon and re-print of Newts and Daffodils. Now available as A6 greetings cards from my Mabel Art Etsy shop and the frog and toad ones can also be found Frames and Boxes Gallery in Newton Abbot.
My contribution to March @meetthemaker , here’s a bit about myself. I paint from the living room table when not juggling family; when not doing part time day job mapping and managing data for local authority environmental team; and also trying to do my bit to raise awareness of wildlife conservation and help make our village greener. Ie have become even more of a night owl than before 🦉. To be honest, although I love painting wildlife and fun cartoony frogs, and have produced more paintjngs than I ever have since I was a child, I’m not making much income as a ‘proper business’. 📊📉📈I need to look at better ways to make an income from art or stick to keeping it a hobby. Not helped by natural ability to paint at a snails pace! Unfortunately I didn’t realise so much time is spent doing boring essential admin, as much time as painting😖. I need to paint more!!! I am looking at submitting to image libraries, making a picture book and/or painting more fluffy animals – fluff and feathers sell, right?! Any tips welcome! 😉 Mx
