Sweet Peek of the Week - Lia Lane & Giveaway

Today we have the sweet treat of getting to know one fantastic artist after my own heart.  With a line like, "Wax to me, is like icing on a dreamy cupcake", I knew we'd get along just fine.  Her name is Lia and she is creator of all the amazing items in an Etsy shop named Lia Lane.


Lia creates these stunning images using papers, acrylics, glitter, mica, and then covers each on with archival beeswax for it's texture.  The outcome is simply stunning!


Time to ask Lia our fast five...

Hi Lia!  Could you tell us a little bit more about yourself and Lia Lane: Lia's Beeswaxed Gallery?

"My name is Lia Lane and I make and sell werid and apparently funny (I never mean too, they just end up that way! hehe) mixed media paintings covered in my favorite thing ever....beeswax!" 


What an amazing idea for adding a unique touch to your art.  What has and continues to inspire you to create?

"Everything around me inspires! My daily life experiences and thoughts are always thrown into my paintings." :) 

You must never fun out of inspiration that way!  Have you had to overcome any obstacles in the creation of Lia Lane?  

"My biggest obstacle has been just getting the word out about my shop. I hate that I have to promote it. I'd much rather use that time to create!" :)

I completely understand!  Hope are you overcoming this?

"I've overcome it a lot by getting a facebook fan page and hooking up with awesome bloggers to help spread the word!" 

Well this blogger is more than happy to help and loved having you here!  Any words of advice for us before you go?

"My advice to other aspiring Etsians would be.. Just Do It! Open that shop, make things that are true to you and don't be so serious! Have fun with it!! That's what I do!" :) 

Thank you so much Lia for stopping by and sharing some insight into you and your shop, Lia Lane.  An extra big thank you from all my readers for giving us all a chance to own one of your amazing paintings here on the blog!
