Friday Feature and Giveaway!

****And the winner is.... Erin! Congrats!****

Hello everyone! I hope you enjoy this weeks Friday Feature and Giveaway! This weeks feature is on a wonderful Fine Art Photography shop, called Celtic Cats Photos! This shop features beautiful pictures available in prints, as well as note cards! Please read her feature! (Giveaway details available at the end of this feature!)

1. Could you give me a little background information about you and your shop?
I started drawing and painting at a very young age. But photography has been my real passion. Over the summer and autumn seasons my partner and I do local art shows as well.
2. How did you get started in your craft?
My father had given me a camera for Christmas one year. Back in the day, you shot color for holidays and black and white the rest of the year.

3. How did you come up with your shop name?
My studio was originally called A Touch Of Ireland, but unfortunately, that name was taken when I set up my domain. So one morning I called my cat Osisin the Celtic Cat. I thought is was
a good name and changed everything to Celtic Cat Photos.

4. How long have you been doing your craft?
I have sold photograph at art shows for about 20 years. I am new to online selling though. Etsy has given me a chance to create during what would be our down season.
5.Where do you find inspiration for your crafts?
I find inspiration in old things, barns, farms, houses, carousel horses.

6. Where else can we find you? (blog, facebook, twitter, etc.)
On my blog.
