Meet SpiritedWoodland! EAST Memeber interview #2!


This is the second in a series of posts introducing our Street Team members. We are a varied group of unique artists! Today I am sharing interview responses from Roxie of Spirited Woodland.

1] Name: Roxie J. Zwicker

2] Shop name and link:

Spirited Woodland - www.SpiritedWoodland.etsy.com

3] Inspiration for shop name:

I thought that the woods could be filled with curious creatures - along with some myth, magic and mystery. I find that sunlight streaming through the trees is just as inviting as moonlit nights in the woods... and I think my work encompasses all of those aspects... hence the name.

4] Location and any impact on your work:

NH Seacoast... Yes, there is no other place I would rather live than New England! The colors and textures of the seasons constantly call to me. I am about an hour from the gorgeous White Mountains and yet a few minutes from the ocean. I truly love where I am. I travel all over finding inspiration on back roads and country roads.

5] Preferred medium(s):

Wood, fabric, dried flowers and moss.

6] Brief personal history: I am also an a uthor - my 4th book is on it's way to bookstores - it's about the legends and lore of New England's Haunted cemeteries. I've been so fascinated with our area's history, I just can't get enough. I started my own business, New England Curiosities (www.newenglandcuriosities.com) in 2002 giving tours of our local fascinating places. I've been lucky enough to have been featured on the Travel Channel and History Channel. I meet the most interesting people in my field... and I love to hear their stories! I also have a background in finance and accounting and worked in that field for over 15 years.

7] What brought you to crafting and Etsy:

I've been making things for as long as I can remember. I totally get into whatever I'm working on at the time and the world just goes by. I take great pride in what I do and always wondered if there would be people interested in the way I look at the world. Etsy seemed to be an easy and fun way to introduce a lot of my art to the world, although I have been selling my jewelry and photographs for several years previous. For my one of a kind art pieces, Etsy was a perfect fit. I could experiment with different projects and find out what people liked, while continually finding inspiration and new ways to do things.

8] Where do you glean your inspiration, family, friends, Spiritual Path:

My family is very supportive of my art... considering it and my supplies are in practically every single room of the house (someday a studio!). My husband will often bring home interesting things and tell me, "Well, I think you can do something with that." I love those challenges. Some treasures I'll find at flea markets and antique shops and sometimes I can just see a piece transformed in my mind! When I'm working with wood, I really want to express the spirit and energy of the trees and honor them in some way - I just love trees and their energy.

9] What's in the wings, mediums to try, subjects to explore:

I'm dabbling in ACEO's and I find that to be a lot of fun. I'm going to keep a few on hand at all times.

10] Any additional information you would like to share:

My thoughts over all are - don't be afraid to do something different - or try a medium that you may never have considered. Have fun with what you do... it will show through your work - every time!
