Focus On... Den10Studio And A Giveaway!

{{{GIVEAWAY CLOSED}}}

I have this new obsession with bicycles and bicycle prints. In real life (imagine that!), I've even started biking again. In my internet life, I am drawn to bicycle prints and photos, even jewelry! Did you notice the previous giveaway from Orange Twist had a bicycle-themed prize? Well, I've found more fun bike items! Den-10 Studio is headed by Karyn, a graphic designer in California turned stay-at-home mom in Illinois. Her fun, whimsical style is heavily influenced by her young children and her desire to enjoy every moment.

“There is something about the simplicity of an object that reminds us of a moment in time that we enjoyed. This art was created with those moments in mind...the little moments that refresh the soul.”

Karyn answered my silly questions quickly and enthusiastically and offered a surprise for my readers (keep reading!).

{The print on the left is Happy Day.}



What kind of mediums do you use and why?
The mediums I use most are pen and ink.


What made you decide to sell on etsy?
I decided to sell on etsy because they make it so easy for you to set up a "shop" and it is nice to be a part of their selling community, the talent is amazing!


Where do you get your inspiration?
I get my inspiration from my two children and vintage shops. I love collections or multiples of things, all the better if they spark a nostalgic thought. Hand lettering is a favorite too.

What is your favorite music to craft by?
The music I listen to ranges from Vampire Weekend to The Weepies.
What are your favorite blogs right now?
My favorite blogs right now are Lola B's for the beautiful photography and Heather Bullard for the fresh California feel that I miss (my husband and I lived in California for 8 years before returning to the midwest).

You can  find Karyn at the following links:Etsy Shop
