Featured Artist - MarthaHaskins

Who are you? Alexandra Martha Haskins Pilarczyk Whatton, a 22 year-old creative soul stuck in a body holding an Animal Behavior degree from the University of Connecticut and trying to get out!

What is your Etsy Shop Name/link? “MarthaHaskins” - http://MarthaHaskins.etsy.com

What tag categories do you specialize in? Fine Art, Originals, Paper Goods, and some random new attempts!

Do you create for children or adults, women or men? Everyone!

What do you like about Etsy? That it is easy to understand, easy to search and find unique stuff, and nearly EVERYTHING is HANDMADE!

Where do you find inspiration for your products? Everywhere (I have lots of “every’s!”) – inspiration is in the people you know and places you go.

What do you love about your business? It is just completely ME…I put all of myself in to every piece.

What is your favorite product right now? In my shop? “Frank the Snowboarder.”


In someone else’s Etsy store? I am coveting the “Human Walker Biped Steampunk Vehicle and Machine All Wood Replica Statue” by buildersstudio. I’ve never seen anything like it!


What makes you unique at Etsy? I do not make prints of anything. Everything in my store is ONE-OF-A-KIND (OOAK)! Also, I think my silhouettes and produce paintings are pretty unique (my produce paintings sell right when I put them up!).



What other street teams are you a member of? Etsy Bloggers and We Love Etsy.
