Focus On... Lil Photo Boxes! {And Free Shipping!}

Lil Photo Boxes is backed by Michelle, a talented artist in Seattle. Michelle takes beautiful photographs and mounts them on reclaimed wood or in reclaimed wood shadowboxes. I love the juxtaposition of her clean photography and the rawness of her materials. Read on for an interview with Michelle and a shipping discount!

Tell me some basic info about yourself.
I am an artist, photographer, amateur musician, and traveler.

What kind of mediums do you use and why?

Film, encaustics, and whatever's at hand. I like trying new things and change my focus when necessary.

What made you decide to sell on etsy?

I had been vending at festivals for some time and met other vendors from Etsy... it seemed like a good idea.

When it's cold outside... the wax is melting!

When I'm hungry... I dream.

When I need a boost... I pick up my violin.

I wish I was... traveling.

If I could give one gift to everyone I know, it would be... happiness.

If I could have coffee with anyone, it would be... tea... with Marcel Duchamp.

If you were an animal, what would you be? A hawk...
