WESTie Wednesday with Sashira

Welcome to WESTie Wednesday, where each week we get to know a proud WEST member and their Etsy shop! Learn about Sashira and her Etsy shop Sashira!

“I'm not out to make a big profound statement with my work. Being creative makes me happy, and I want to share bright, happy things with those around me!”

 “I'm a former junior high art teacher and now stay at home full time with my children. I sell mainly paintings and drawings, but I have a few cards and prints. Eventually I'd like to have more cards and prints available to people. I love watercolour, pen, and marker. When I work big, I like acrylic paint.”

 “I'm inspired by many things, most recently the trees of my childhood neighborhood and the Bosnian art work that I grew up around. I also love patterns and repetition, so citrus fruits are really fun for me to draw. I'm attracted to imperfect symmetry, so citrus and kilims are perfect for me to use in my work."
"When I paint with acrylics, I usually am drawn to dots and drips. Metallics are pleasing to me, so I'll often use gold and silver in my paintings and drawings. I'm very fortunate to have an art space in my home. It's a bright, sunny room where I can have my supplies out and work at the ready without fear of my kids getting into it.”

We also asked Sashira, "Why Etsy?" 
“Finding time to be creative is difficult when you have two small children, so my Etsy shop is a way to keep me motivated to put pen and paint to paper.”
