Listen to this episode

Etsy and Insta Fave Ingrid Sanchez, aka @creativeingrid is in the bar today!

Our Guest Artist: Ingrid Sanchez

Our Host Artist: Carol McQuaid

Our Bar: The Hillgate Pub in London’s Notting Gate

The podcast is taking a big turn this week as we cross over the Atlantic!  For the next couple of months I’ll be walking into bars with artists all over, starting in London, with Etsy and Instagram Fave Ingrid Sanchez.  You probably know her as CreativeIngrid,

Listen in as Ingrid and I talk about finding your thing, building a good social media and online sales platform, and what it’s like to get a bump from buzzfeed. 

In this episode you’ll hear about:

  • How she got started on Instagram
  • Getting featured on Buzzfeed “that was the little event that changed absolutely everything”
  • Living in New York and starting out as an artist, why she began painting in the floor and what the advantages of that are.
  • How her art biz works: websites, etsy, and business that comes through social media. No galleries.
  • We talk subject matter, and how a trip to the Brooklyn floral market changed everything for her
  • How attending workshops can shift or even start a career (scroll down to resources for her recommendation)
  • How to get started in art licensing, creating fabric pillows and downloadable art
  • We talk about what makes a good Etsy shop, and how you need to present a clear voice.
  • Her studio work shops; who comes and what they learn (caution, listening to this part might make you want to book a trip to London for a workshop)
