It is a small company managed on its own with the collaboration of a Creative Team that is constantly renewed. The products in the shop are currently digital: stamps and papers designed entirely by myself. There are two parallel blogs: one in which the projects created by my Creative Team are presented and another dedicated exclusively to challenges.

She loved watching demonstrations by artists on the streets and at festivals and spent most of her free time perusing arts and crafts books in the library, drawing, crafting, and experimenting with her art supplies at home. Conie first started sharing her art with the world by selling ACEO reprints of her ACEO paintings of fairies, mermaids, and kitty art on eBay in 2010. She was a full-time account manager for a University before becoming a full-time mom and part-time artist.

from
Hello! I am Mia. I am married to a wonderful husband and work as a senior scientific officer in the public sector in Athens, the capital of Greece. I love animals and I have canaries and cats. I love art journaling, mixed media, and even digital creations. While I love coloring and making cute, elegant, vintage, or romantic paper crafts, I often use non-traditional colors or try different styles or techniques. I also add collage and drawing, making quirky images. I am a multi-crafter and enjoy painting, sewing, stitching, crocheting, and making jewelry, and cosmetics. I also love writing poems and taking photos of nature (sky, sea, flowers, trees, and critters.) You may see my creations on my blog, Craftartista.
