This artist has to be one of the best sellers on Etsy that I have ever seen, and that is the shop from ‘Aida Pravia’!
Usually, I review/give some more information on Etsy shops for more than 1 shop at a time, all in just one blog post, but this one I wanted to mention separately because it is so fantastic. My vocabulary is too limited to describe this artist, I’m perplexed!
Did I say yet how wonderful this seller is haha! Let me tell you why I think that in the blog post of today.
This Etsy shop makes or sells.
Aida Pravia’s shop on Etsy sells a large range of different pieces of miniature furniture and I have also seen a small dollhouse and room boxes (those lanterns, wow!)
Some more info about this shop.
The professional miniature artist Aida Pravia has graduated in Art History and it shows!
She has experience in the miniature world for over 20 years and in the meantime has developped her own and unique style.
In december 2020, the miniature magazine called ‘DollsHouse and Miniature Scene’ also showed her work.
Once you have seen her miniature pieces, you will recognize the style and use of colors easily and of course the technical sophistication.
Looking closer at her work, you will notice that she uses relief arabesque motifs and she got pretty famous for that.
These miniature pieces have been painted with oil paint and everything is painted in detail, as you can see in the pictures below.
She got experienced by painting real size fabrics, like the Mantle of the Virgin at Oviedo’s cathedral and the Sanctuary of Covadonga. Also, luxury shawls were painted for famous people like Her Majesty Doña Sofia Queen of Spain and The famous Opera diva Monserrat Caballé.
Her workplace and shop can be visited in Oviedo, where she also teaches other artists how to paint and do miniatures.
Also, she has gathered during her career plenty of awards, both national and international and has participated in many fairs and exhibitions. All of this makes her one of the best sellers on Etsy, in my opinion.
Here you can see a little video on her Instagram of a Christmas tree with working lights and a gramophone as well!
The prices are high-class prices, but that is pretty obvious to me. They go from $50,00 to $3639,56. And these are her shop policies.
Picture time! (there is a lot more on her Etsyshop!)
The good and the bad :
Here is where I usually make 2 lists of the ‘good and the bad‘, viewing the shops of Etsy sellers. In my personal opinion, I can not see anything ‘bad‘ about this fantastic artist or her shop, so I am not going to go down that road. The only ‘bad’ thing about this could be the personal problem that I have that my wallet isn’t big enough hahaha!
A few good things that I can add to this shop is :
- free shipping
- well packaged
- arrived quickly
- great customer service
- custom orders available
I don’t think I have ever written about such as fantastic seller on Etsy before, since the start of my website. But I just kept bumping into her wonderful work on social media, that I just hàd to write a blog post about it! And I hope you will enjoy her art as much as I am.
