For those of you who haven't been following my journey for long, I am relatively new to the Etsy scene. And very new to selling my work at all. I opened my shop in March, after months of preparation and fear took up my time.
I create illustrations and paintings, using both a traditional and digital approach, and color them with either Copic Markers, Winsor & Newton ProMarkers, and a variety of paints. My favorites are watercolors, from either Redwood Willow, Winsor & Newton or Japanese brand, Kuretake Gansai Tambi.
It isn't difficult to open a shop. But I wanted it to be perfect so I tried very hard to make sure that it was. With just the right amount of products, great product descriptions and a beautiful cover image, among other things.
My name is Gaby. I am the founder of Pinales Illustrated, where my sister and I share our art in various forms with the world.
