Odd Ball Art Co. Review and Giveaway! (Giveaway closed)

Etsy Feature:
Odd Ball Art Co.



Interview with Elizabeth from Odd Ball Art Co. :

~Tell us about yourself, Elizabeth.~

I am 29 yrs. Old and I am a freelance Artist. I live in Cottam Ontario with my husband Adam and all of our animal kids. I have a doodle named Isabelle, 3 cats Punky, Maxwell, and ChiChi and a rabbit name Lou C. I started going to college wanting to do fashion design but 2 yrs into it I realized that it was the fine arts that I enjoyed much, much more. I took some art courses but ended up having to end my college years due to lack of funding. I continued studying art on my own and it’s been about six years now and I enjoy it a lot, I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. I just discovered Etsy last week and thought it would be neat to open a shop to sell some of my work. I opened my shop Oddball Art Co. up on Monday November 8 2010 and I sell original acrylic paintings, and glass rings. All of my paintings are guaranteed to be 100% original; I will never make any numbered prints or duplications of any kind so all of my works are truly one of a kind.

~What or who inspires you?~

I tend to gather inspiration from everywhere all of the time. I always seem to picture everything as how it would look as a painting, so I paint a fairly large variety of subject matters. If I would have to say who my favorite artist is, I would have to say Salvador Dali, I just love his surreal scenes that are usually so out there, their just amazing. He also paints butterflies a lot and that is a subject matter I am very familiar with as well.

~What is your all-time favorite painting in your shop?~ 

That’s really a hard question for me, I love all my paintings but after pondering it around for a while I have decided to say ‘Nymphalidae.” It’s so bright and colorful and full of butterflies and flowers you can’t help but feel happy when you look at it.

~My Review~
Elizabeth from Oddball Art Co. was soo wonderful to work with from day 1. She hand painted my one awesome picture to review and sent me some really cool hand blown glass rings.  
The painting is so vibrant and fits my personality to a T. The picture doesn't do it much justice...it's so much brighter and very glossy in person. Seriously, I refer to myself as a bright and colorful person. I draw too, and I have a problem doing black and white pictures. I just have to add some color to it or it just doesn't look right! You can tell Elizabeth used some very good paint! As always, I asked my fiance for a second opinion and he loves it too! It is usually very hard to please him so...Bravo Oddball Art Co. ! I have it hanging in my "work" space so it gives me some inspiration to write!
I was also sent some of the Hand Blown Glass Rings to review as well.
  
What's really amazing about these rings is that there are designs inside the glass! Flowers, Patterns, and Swirls.
How cool is that?
These rings are very well made and have NOT broken on me and I have practically worn them everyday. 

Oddball Art Co. is one shop that you should definitely consider when shopping for Christmas gifts!

  2. Great interview. I have to agree - the colorful butterfly painting is awesome, but I'm a bit prejudiced. I LOVE butterflies. The Storm Day painting is beautiful too.
