Marketplace Monday Etsy OFG Artisian Barb Stock of Barb's Heartstrokes

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Today's Marketplace Monday feature is Barb Stock of Barb's Heartstrokes. Barb lives in Utah with her husband and two children. Barb creates wonderful whimsical paintings, and they're adorable, as you can see below. Please stop by her Etsy shop, she has wonderful items you'll love! Here's a little about Barb and a link to her Etsy shop.

1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?
‘Heartstrokes ’ came about because I was an Intensive Care Cardiac nurse and was learning to paint. So between my job and learning to paint they were both quite a challenge. But anything that is a challenge usually is worth it. So when I started a business it seemed natural to combine the two.

2. How long have you been on Etsy?
Brand new since April 2010

3. What type of items do you offer?
I hand paint everyday and seasonal designs on framed fiberglass black screen with acrylic paint. It has a flair of folk art, primitive, and whimsy. I also paint ornaments , magnets, and any surface that looks interesting to me.

4. How long have you been crafting?
I have been painting for about 14 years. My husband was in the Air force and was deployed overseas so I took an acrylic painting class at a local craft store and loved it!

5. Who or What inspires you?
Many artists of the painting world inspire me, fun whimsical patterns and COLORS!

6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why?
That is a hard question to answer…I end up falling in love with what ever I happen to be painting at the present time. But my latest favorite is I love this Witch!

7. Other places where you can be found (Ebay, webstore, blog)?
I have a fairly new blog at
Have a great day everyone!
