Thank you for visiting today! It is a pleasure to share my work with you.
Do contact me if you have any questions!

The sales from my Etsy shop are few and spending more time and energy does not make sense. Etsy has changed. They are not that magical place where people could find quality handmade custom work. It is filled with prints knock offs from China and substandard products. There is still the most wonderful original work found but most serious artists have moved on with their own web sites.

Prints, Art, Canvas Floor Cloths, Murals,

Since I work with FineArtAmerica and Society6 where you can buy any size print, on anything wood, paper, canvas, acrylic or metal, frame it, or buy from the large selection of home decor and accessories with a hassle free return policy at an amazing price why Etsy? Etsy charges for everything and I had to add the additional charges to the final price I charged at Etsy. This really bothered me. I felt like I was cheating my customer, though I was upfront with my policy at Etsy. Etsy customer (I have a record of you) get 10% off on select products.

I have gone back and forth with this for a year. I gave Etsy till the end of the year to prove their value. Sadly the stats proved me right. Etsy has changed. My web sites get an average of 1500 hits a day where Etsy could not break the 50 mark. At one time I had an average of 500 to 700 a day at Etsy. Etsy has stopped listing with Google. Their home page is confusing. Most of the products cater to one demographic, not mine. My clientele tends to be older, affluent and searching for custom one of a kind art and work.

I hope my clients at Etsy read this and understand. Please come and join me at Laurie Rohner Studio or Between The Weeds Marketplace for my original art and furniture and visit Whitefield Studio the gateway to my prints and printed decor.

Herbs and garden flowers are illustrated in watercolor and ink.

Herbs and flowers are illustrated in my watercolor painted on clay board. The watercolor is subtle and makes a wonderful compliment to the ink work. The hint of sky is reminiscence of a summer sky with the herbs and flowers painted in the same subtle hues. I love the contrast of the ink and how the flowers pop.

New Between The Weeds Sign

Oh how much fun painting this sign with a twist. I took an old stretched canvas and repainted a painting of a whimsical farmhouse garden with my sign in the painting. This is the new style, a new branding for my studio. I decided being serious is overrated and fun is so much better.

Be sure to check out my shop for some new work.

Have a brilliant fun day.
