Meet QueenofQueens!

We will be doing weekly interviews in order to get to know members of the Queer Etsy street team better.

The lovely, quirkly, and multi-talented Michelley QueenofQueens agreed to be the first interviewee. Be sure and visit her Etsy shop when you are done reading!

Who are you? Michelley QueenofQueens. Interdisciplinary artist and conduit of the absurd.

What do you create? Everything. My expansive Sagittarian nature demands that it be so.

How long have you been doing your art/craft? My first conscious memory of creativity was when I was a pre-schooler. I drew Melody of Josie and the Pussycats on my yellow shag carpet with my dad's shaving cream.

What do you like about creating? It keeps homicidal urges at bay.

What do you like about your business? I am very gratified when people make a connection with something that's arrived in the world through me.

How did you find out about Etsy? You know, I really can't remember. It's as if I emerged from a cosmic wormhole one day and there by the grace of divine provenance it was...beckoning.

Do you sell your products anywhere else besides Etsy? I have a little shop in Palm Harbor, FL, Anne Bonney Tattoos, where I hock my wares as I leave permanent marks upon people's skin (some call this "tattooing"). I also have some items available at Pheeney's in Madeira Beach, FL. They have a vast array of artist made items, enough to induce giddiness.

What do you do when you're not creating products for your shop? The aforementioned poking of people's skin. I also design, paint and try to avert existential crises.

What are some other sites where we can find out more about you and what you create?

Michelley, I had no idea you're a tattoo artist. That's so very cool!

I adore your doll / little girl paintings, by the way. Creepy, insightful, fantastic... they really speak to me.
