Etsy Artist of the Week

Today's artist is NuyoricanGreetings. Her votive holders are beautiful and her pictures are great. Lots of deep fall colors! Click on the pic below to visit her etsy store.

From the artist:

I'm a Nuyorican born and raised and I've always longed to have my own business. I've been creative since I can remember which is of course why I ended up on Wall St. for 20 years! (insert laugh here).

I began creating written 'books of intention' that included creative writing and imagery as holiday gifts a few years ago. This evolved into poetry, greeting card and inspirational writing and the decorative votives I have begun listing here. I particularly like using Saints because they remind me of my mother and grandmother's in-home altars :-) - but I also use angels and flowers and pretty much any image that catches my fancy.
