Merchant Monday Circle Featuring Paxton Valley Folk Art

Good Monday Morning to you all. Hope you all had a great weekend.
PAFA Team is trying something new, every Monday team members will be featuring a team member of the PAFA Etsy Team. Today I have Deb From Paxton Valley Folk Art. I love her items. She is so talented. Read on to get to know her better.

1)We did you get your business name from?
I got my business name from the beautiful valley that we live in, here in British Columbia, Canada.

2) How long have you been in business
I 've been crafting for about 20 years but decided to become an 'on-line' prescence as Paxton Valley Folk Art about 2 1/2 years ago.

3) Who or what inspires you
I am inspired by the colours, textures and beauty of the natural world.

4) What is your creative style, primitive, country, folkart
My style is currently primitive and folk art but I love learning new techniques and styles so who knows where I will end up next!

5)What medium do you use in creating, clay, fabric, altered art, wood etc.
I work with fabric, paint, wood, found objects, stamps, paper and anything else that strikes my fancy :O)
I create hand crafted folk art from my own designs and from the designs of other talented artisans. I also create my own original epatterns and occassionally have a found vintage treasure or two to share at my Etsy shop or on my selling blog. I am also just starting to get into wholesaling my items, so if you are a shop owner looking for wholesale prices, please contact me!

6)What are your links (list your etsy shop, eBay, web site, blogs etc.)

I also want to thank Kim from the Barn Hollow for featuring me on her blog Friday. Thank you Kim has a new feature every Friday. Go check her out:
