MissTanDesigns, Shoe Lover and Graphic Designer

Tell me a bit about yourself.
My name is Tanya Wesley (aka Miss Tan, a self-taughtartist/graphic designer, from Chester, SC. I am 31 years old, single, and haveone 4 legged child (miniature poodle) named Max. My passion is art which issomething that I have rediscovered over the last couple of year. I try to combine all my passions into my work especially my love of high heeled,stiletto shoes. Lately, I have been working on expanding my creations outsideof shoes. Acrylics, digital, and graphite are some my favorite mediums to use.
Do you have a blog (and what is its address)?
Yes, I do have a blog. My blog focuses on my passion, shoeart, and news about shoes (from collections, functionality, etc.). The addressis misstandesigns.blogspot.com.
What is your favorite color combination?
My favorite color combination is red, black, and white. Ilove the color red because it stands out from the crowd. The color pops off thepage and immediately catches you attention. Black and white is often there tocomplement the color red. I often see my work as colorful and popping off the page.
Why should people buy handmade?
People should buy handmade because it is quality workstraight from the artist hands. It has a different energy because of thethought, effort, and creativity of the artist. The value of a one of a kindhandmade product is priceless.
Any tips of wisdom on selling handmade stuff?
a. Be patient- It takes time to find you creative groove.Plus, it takes time for the audience to find you.
b. Stay positive-If things are not going your way; rememberit only takes one customer to see the value of you work.
c. Stay true to yourself- Do not try to copy others. Stayfocused on what you do because your products are one of a kind and will bringyou sales because of it.
Apart from creating things, what do you do?
I graduated college with a degree in Sociology. So ofcourse, that led me into the wonderful world of retail. Most of my career hasbeen in big box electronic and apparel retailers, but lately I have beenfocused on my passion for art.

What new designs do you have coming up in your shop?
Lately, I have been experimenting with notecards, postcards,mini cards, and rack cards. I want to expand my shop into different avenues.Mostly my cards will be digital creations that I have done as well as mypartner my sister. Some cards are handmade with a digital twist.
I have one picture from my shop currently and two newpictures that will be adding in the shop for the next couple of weeks. I wouldlove feedback on the new ones.
