Friday Finds... DameonPriestly
This is my 33rd interview of the amazing not-so-well-known artists of Etsy!
I want to thank Etsy seller DameonPriestly for taking part in todays interview, as it is one I have been looking forward to for a while being as I asked a while ago if he'd like to participate. It is this week that he has been able to take the time to complete my questionnaire and give us all a brief insight into his amazing world of his contemporary drawing. I love to give support to my fellow UK Etsy artists, and I found that with Dameon especially when I arrived at his store 2 weeks ago, I was blown away by the haunting and abstract nature of his fine work. His interview is short and sweet, and straight to the point which leaves plenty of time to visit the listings below in his store :)
