We're excited to bring you another in a series of profiles to introduce you to a few of our artisans coming to the 7th Annual Crafty Mart Holiday Show on Saturday and Sunday, November 28th-29th. This is just one in a series of Vendor Spotlights where we let those who will be sharing their wares shine a light on what it is they do. The following profile is Nat from LoveWhatIDo Photography and her response to a mini-questionnaire.
1. 1). What's your name and what is it that you make?
My name is Nat Hansumrittisak of LoveWhatIDo Photography. I am a local photographer in West Akron. I love making stationary, canvas prints, and decorative canvases using my own collection of photographs from my travels.
2). How did you acquire the unique skill set to do what it is you do?
I am a self taught photographer. I learn new skills along the way from fellow photographers and friends. I often create with my heart and I'm usually on the search for things that I could not find in the market so I start making them myself, ie. postcards. I have trouble finding a good postcard when I travel. That is one of the main reasons why I love travel photography--documenting each destination in my own way to share with others.
3). What is your best seller?
Handmade photo transfer canvases. They are 4x4. Great for decor or the perfect gift. You can get one individual canvas or get a set of 3 to tell your story.
4). How long have you been vending? Have you done a Crafty Mart show before?
I have done a few of Crafty Mart shows but I am not a regular vendor. This year though, we will be featuring our handmade photo transfer canvases which I am very proud of, and we are also going to be teaching a workshop to share the fun with you! Sign up for your spot today :)
5). Coffee or tea?
Thank you for answering our questions Nat. And, thanks for coming to the 7th Annual Crafty Mart Holiday Show. We'll see everyone on Sat. & Sun. Nov. 28th-29th at Musica, Akron Art Museum, and Summit Artspace. You'll be able to find LoveWhatIDo Photography at the Akron Art Museum. Sign up for her photo transfer workshop HERE.
