I would like to first tell you a little bit about Janet from Colors and More Colors Etsy shop. She is a single mother of 3 who lives just outside of Vancouver, BC. She loves to paint, bake, cook, and create digital prints. Here is her story in her own words from her etsy shop HERE:
I was a virtually immobile hospital patient waiting for my 2nd spinal surgery and one afternoon my pastor asked what they could bring me when they visit. I literally said “some paint and paper, please”- I thought it would just be a way to kill my boredom short term.
However, soon I discovered my hidden ability to freehand and paint virtually anything that others were requesting and I was painting pictures for many people (staff and patients) in the hospital! One of the staff mentioned Etsy to me, however I really hadn’t thought of ever selling anything *I* made… it seemed like such a far fetched idea. People would say “How long have you been doing this for?” and I would honestly answer, “A week” or “A month” as it was the truth!
Today, Etsy is so much more to me than what it was that day when I first took the brush into my hand, trying to kill boredom. I have a deep love and appreciation for painting and where it has taken me today. I never in a thousand years imagined having my art hanging on walls around the world and it is truly an achievement I am proud of.
I am also blessed to be able to do something I love, which also helps me with my daily pain and discomfort. Being unable to work outside of the home, my hope and goal is to be able to do it full time from home while my kids are in school.
Janet loves to make custom Art, canvas Art, prints, and personalized Art. Let me show you some of her work.
