My name is Aria, I've been creating and crafting for 25 years. I live in the Northwest where if anything stands still it'll grow moss because it rains so much. My artwork is a mix of paintings, sculptures, miniatures, journals, and altered art, mostly each piece is based in fantasy, but I like to include themes of an emotion, like love and happiness, as well as themes of encouragement such as hope, faith, endurance. My biggest fan is my husband of 13 years, and my biggest critic is my cat who really hates it when I paint (I think the moving paintbrush drives her nuts). Though I’m new to Etsy, I have been offering my artwork for sale for about 10 years now, and around 6 years ago I decided to venture into the online world, starting with Ebay. But now Etsy is my home.
