Meet Etsy Artists: TheMayofTeckClub

Pennsylvania natives Emily and Ray are the artists and "partners in crime" behind May of Teck Club, a "purveyor of distinctive drawings and paintings, fine handmade sketchbooks and journals, and other charming and unique novelties." Their love of ephemera comes across in their nostalgic style. "I am one of those people who longs for the simplicity and beauty of ages passed," Emily admits. She often incorporates old-time photos and antique frames in her pieces.

Emily has a full time job besides Etsy, but says, "Anyone who loves to create art would agree that 'hobby' is simply too reductive a word (for Etsy). My 'job' is a Receptionist... but my art is what I DO." TheMayofTeckClub may be new to Etsy, but their goal is to be "patient and persistant, to make those first few sales, and to work earnestly thereafter to make (their) shop better and better." The "community of incredible artists" on Etsy is what appealed to them. "(We are) very new to Etsy, and (are) already overwhelmed with the overflow of encouragement and camaraderie in the Forums. Take advantage of the great resource of kind, like-minded people who make Etsy the great site that it is," they advize. Please visit their shop:
