Uniq by Jaidra Interview and Giveaway(Giveaway Closed)



Etsy Feature:
Uniq By Jaidra
Interview with Uniq by Jaidra

~Tell Us a little bit about yourself~
Hi, I'm Jaidra and I have a bad case what my friends like to call "creativity ADD." I am a professional belly dancer, fire dancer, and henna artist. I also hand paint silks of all shapes and sizes, make jewelry, write, and spend as much time as possible outside. I grew up in the country, and I carry a deep love and respect for nature in my heart, and I hope that shows in the art that I create. 

~What inspired you to start your shop?~
I began silk painting 4 years ago by hand dyeing my own dance veils and fell in love with the art form. I began selling my pieces so that I would have enough spare cash to purchase more raw materials in order to paint more silks. This is still true today. Almost every time I make a sale, I fantasize about what new material, tool, or technique I'm going to be able to try out next.
A similar phenomenon occurred with my jewelry making. I go to arts and craft fairs when I can, but I'm really hoping that my Etsy shop will help me reach a broader audience, and thus have the resources to learn and create more.

~What is your favorite item that is currently in your shop?~
My favorite item that I have up for sale right now is the abstract silk painting titled "1st week in November." I really was painting what I was feeling that day, and the combination of organic and mechanistic shapes along with the vibrant colors really makes my heart sing. 


                                                                  
~5 Words to Describe you~
  1. Artistic
  2. Energetic
  3. Introspective

  5. Quirky
