Meet Etsy Artist: EmilyBalivet

Emily Balivet is a full time artist, who works from home while taking care of her two daughters. "I'm inspired by the pre-Raphaelites, art Nouveau, mythology, folklore, and the magical Earth," she admits. Her greatest inspiration, though, is music. "Many of my paintings begun while listening to a particular song incessantly," she explains. Her art noveau/gothic style is hard to put into words - especially for Emily. "Maybe earthen psychedelic dream time classic nouveau witchy," she says. "I feel like it goes all over the place and long may it be so." She'd like to remind her fellow artists that "there is someone out there who will connect with everything an artist/crafter can make- no matter WHAT the creator's opinion. If it's listed, someone somewhere will have to have it. So list away!" Please check out her shop: http://emilybalivet.etsy.com/
