Member Artisan Feature: Southern Voodoo
Meet Michelle, the artist behind the Etsy shop, Southern Voodoo. She has been creating fun, high quality hair accessories for two years. Michelle's unique designs have an architectural quality that goes beyond the traditional bow!
Louisiana-born and raised, she finds inspiration for her ribbon art clippies everywhere. Her nature themes include the crawfish, crab, bumblebee, frog, among others. For foodies, there are ice cream cones and strawberry clips. You'll even find people, in the form of a cheerleader, or ballet dancer.
A big LSU fan, Michelle's favorite creation is the LSU Tiger Head clippie found on her Bayou Bows n More website. She also has an LSU woven ribbon headband.
While it's sometimes a challenge finding time for both creating and her family, she says her favorite work perk is, "I get to stay home with my daughter and be home for when my son comes home from school."
When asked whether she had one piece of advice for other handmade sellers, she replies, "Don't sell yourself short."
Check out Southern Voodoo's beautiful creations at her Etsy shop, Southern Voodoo, and at her Bayou Bows n More website.
