Jaz, from the Zazzle store artbyjaz, discusses where she finds design inspiration and how she Zazzle benefits her business. Check out the interview below and don’t forget to check out her store artbyjaz.
Zazzle: To start off, tell us a little about your background.
Jaz: I’m Jaz Higgins, I’m 27 years old and I’m a full-time artist and work-at-home Mum, living in Brisbane, Australia.
Zazzle: When and how did you first become interested in art? How long have you been making art?
Jaz: I’ve always loved color and crafty things. From when I was a toddler, my Mum would reward me with pencils, crayons, pens, paints, and coloring books, which I just loved. There’s something magical about opening a fresh pack of crayons.
I’ve been making art professionally for about 7 years now.
Zazzle: Where do you draw inspiration?
Jaz: I find inspiration in books, magazines, the internet, nature, museums, vintage ephemera, and working with other artists. There are lots of little occasions in everyday life where inspiration comes along unexpectedly as well.
Zazzle: What has been your favorite design you’ve created, and why?
Zazzle: When you’re not creating art, what are your other hobbies?
Jaz: When I’m not creating art, I’m usually spending time with my Husband and 3 year old daughter. I love reading, watching movies, meals with friends, visiting galleries and museums, and going to the beach.
Zazzle: What got you interested in selling your art on Zazzle?
Jaz: I was amazed at the huge range of products I could have my art on! They are such good quality and it’s a great way for me to outsource my merchandise and make it available in any amount to anyone in the world, without having to have a big warehouse myself! :)
Zazzle: What tips can you give someone who is just starting out on Zazzle?
Jaz: Stay patient at first, keep listing regularly and before you know it – you’ll have your first sale!
Zazzle: Can you give us a sneak peek of future designs?
Jaz: I’ve just finished a new painting called “Woodland Fairy” – I’ll be adding this design to my Zazzle products in the next few days. I’m always giving sneak peeks of what I’m working on on my Facebook page as well.
Zazzle: Lastly, a very serious question – If you could be a superhero, what would be your super power?
Jaz: I would love to be able to heal people (although I would imagine I would be very busy!) – otherwise teleporting or time travel would be pretty cool too!
Thanks for sharing Jaz!
