Member of the Month for July 2014

Congratulations Heather!!

Heather of HeatherMcCawArt was chosen as our member of the month for July.

Here are just a few of her gorgeous pieces that we have chosen to feature on our team Pinterest boards.

Follow EtsyExpats's board Member of the Month: July 2014 on Pinterest.

I asked Heather about her life as an expat and her artwork.  Here is her response:


" I live near Ramstein, Germany, where my husband is stationed with the U.S. Air Force.
We have been here about two years.
We enjoy this part of Germany for its wine, food, delicious bread and pastries, and the opportunities to travel to several other countries. Some of my favorite cities in this part of the world: Ghent, Metz, Cologne, Munich, and Berlin.

Something I miss most about home? I have to admit, sometimes I miss being able to pick up something from the store at night or on Sundays. :)

About my artwork:
My work is currently evolving. When I first came to Germany, I was enticed by all the pastries and bread, so I painted two series of very realistic bakery goods and sweets.

After that, I felt like I wanted to explore abstraction in a serious way. For the past several months, I've been painting little abstractions inspired by my meditation practice and the forms, lines, and colors found in nature. In the meantime, I've also been learning printmaking, so you'll see an eclectic mix of work in my shop right now".

Hello again.

We had plenty of interesting and varied items to add to this treasury.  All unique and individual.
A really good mix and difficult to choose just one.  

Our favourite and I'm sure you can see why, is Dom wearing one of Sally's cowboy/girl outfits.  

Sally of BloomingtailsDogDuds makes all kinds of cute doggie outfits and Dom the Pom is her adorable model:)
