REMEMBER VOTING CLOSES ON APRIL 6th.





In July 2012, I had recently discovered rubber stamps and had started to create greeting cards using watercolors and stamps. I started a blog to share these creations with the wonderful stamping community. Soon, I started receiving requests for purchase which led me to starting an Etsy shop in July 2015. I was very honored and thankful to all those who purchased and within a year my shop had seen enough success for me to start making more plans for it's growth. But then, life had other plans for me and I had to put my shop and life on hold. After 6 months am now back with renewed faith and fervor and am busy once again making plans for my shop. I passionately paint loose and expressive watercolors and find this medium extremely meditative. This is my dream job, I have always wanted to own a boutique filled with my artwork where people can walk in empty and walk out with an experience. Etsy has made that dream come true!


If I am fortunate enough to win this contest, I would most definitely invest it in a large fine art printer capable of helping me make Giclee prints. I want to make affordable art and making fine art prints is one of the best ways to help my collectors purchase my art . The first step to a good print is of course a good scanner to scan my original watercolors . I currently use my small office scanner to scan and that does not always stand up to the test of large watercolor paintings. A large bed scanner would be a great addition to my studio.


Thank you to all those who have seen this post on Instagram and already casted their vote for my little shop...appreciate it!


Have a wonderful weekend!

SANKETISTUDIO- Website Launch

Excited to share a brand new phase and a new beginning of sorts...a new website!  I have always wanted a space where my friends, family and clients could see all  my work under one roof and I have been working on this portfolio for a while now. I have put in a lot of effort into  building this new place for my art  and I am so happy and excited to introduce it to you.


.......it's live!


SANKETISTUDIO.COM



I remember back in 2015, I started my little Etsy store just because my blog readers kept asking me if I sold my greeting cards and I thought to myself, why not? and decided to open  a store where they could purchase my cards. Now after 2 years, my little art business has grown by leaps and bounds and is not 'little' anymore. I now have a brand, a logo, and most importantly I have people who love my work and would like to collect it!

Etsy gave me the freedom and courage to go behind my dreams. It has given me the permission to believe in myself and although it's been  frustrating at times, in the end it's been worth it.

Very soon, you will also be able to purchase originals and prints directly from my website. The pieces you find on my website will be exclusive and not be found elsewhere.  You can also contact me for custom work.

My Etsy store shall still remain and I have lots of plans for it too and by going to my website, you can still access my Etsy store. But I want to make it easier for everyone by having the option to purchase right on my site.


Moving forward with lots of hope and aspirations and the dream to work on bigger and better art!

yours ARTfully,
Swarup
