I'm Ellie, a 25 year artist from Brisbane Australia and I love to paint. I have an online Etsy store 'Delineate Gallery' where I sell original paintings, art prints, ACEO's and handmade greeting cards. I tend to paint landscapes, animals and nature because this is what interests me the most. My style is bright, realistic and contemporary.
Etsy Time Saving Tip
When photographing my items, I tend to photograph them in bulk and only list one or two each day, rather than taking photos each time I finish a painting. This also helps me to have a backlog of items, so if I ever get sick or too busy to paint I always have something to list.
Other Time Saving Tip
I get up early in the morning to work on my art and Etsy shop until the early evening. That gives me the time for the other aspects to life: exercise, making dinner, relaxation time and spending time with my pets.
