I recently decided to open an Etsy store to sell my paintings and I named it Manic Creations Design. I thought the name was appropriate since I tend to create in a hypomanic state and my paintings tend to have more of a design element to them as I have a tendency to abstract objective images. I am also working towards becoming a Graphic Designer which I am studying currently at Niagara College. This store title might very well be the beginning of something even bigger – perhaps the name of my business as a designer. I created a logo for the storefront using the skills learned in one of my design courses (pictured below).

My Logo for Manic Creations Design

I created the logo in illustrator using my favourite font “Bauhaus” which I think is a clever tribute to design in general in that it is named after a famous design school in Germany. I am more than enthused that I can apply the skills I am learning in my Graphic Design program to real life and projects that I am currently working on. The Etsy store is just opening and has one painting for sale so far which is titled “It’s All Coming Up Roses.” It is a watercolour painting featuring my design of a collage of abstracted roses. It is painted using all metallic watercolour paints so that depending on the way the light reflects it, it appears unique from different angles (pictured below).

I am also blessed to have friends who see the value in my art and take it upon themselves to purchase pieces from me. I recently sold a watercolour painting titled “Vintage Roses” to my best friend (pictured below). I do not know if this new Etsy endeavor of mine will prove successful but I believe in my talent as an artist and think it is about time I started putting myself out there.
