Beauty and talent go hand in hand! Meet Rachel and you will agree...Rachel Shockey Studio is a wonderful Etsy shop specializing in fantastic original oil paintings, charcoal drawings and prints.
Rachel found Etsy after her sister told her she was buying a headdress for her wedding from a seller who sold on the site.Once she browsed Etsy, this artist knew it was the place for her! Rachel stated she loves the sense of community on Etsy and enjoys building relationships with people.
Rachel started her Etsy shop in the summer of 2009 and she feels it's slowly been a work in progress.

Her words of wisdom for readers who are considering opening a shop on Etsy are:"Make sure your body of work is cohesive. For me, I love to paint a variety of different subjects, but I strive to keep my style and colors the same. If you can, have a lot of listings, and list often. Also, the best piece of advice I can give is research what other successful artists (in your field of work) are doing. Etsy has a great sense of community and other sellers are usually pretty helpful if you ask them questions."
