Sponsor Spotlight + Giveaway: Violetdart

This giveaway is closed. The winner was #64, Katarzyna! Congratulations!
I’m so happy to introduce you to Violet, a returning sponsor of Julie Ann Art! She’s a talented photographer who lives in Bulgaria and she has the loveliest Etsy shop of her work.

My name is Violet. I photograph things, faces and places. Everything that speaks to me in one way or another. I like to try making original fine art pieces with my photographs, playing with textures and colors to express emotions and feelings. I like traveling, mystery, quantum physics, books, yoga, music and concert photography, tea, grapefruits, vegetarian meals, poems, journals, handmade, vintage, impressionists, the sky, purple, early morning hours..

Most of my photography can be found on http://www.violetdart.com. I sell it on Etsy, and although I haven’t been there long enough I truly love the place and its creative atmosphere, and how the close seller-customer relationship makes the whole process great and exciting and takes it to a whole other level. Society6 is another place where you can buy my work, and also as laptop, iPod, iPhone and iPad skins and cases.

    OMG, I’ve been following Violet for months and I had yet to notice that she lives in Bulgaria…my dad’s from there and it’s always really exciting to discover someone who actually knows where Bulgaria is. :)
    Oh, and I love the photograph of the two chairs.
