Theater Clouds On Etsy

I love this art print by Elly MacKay of Etsy shop Theater Clouds. Elly makes art prints from scenes that she assembles using yupo paper, ink, light, and a miniature theater. I love it!

I discovered her shop a few days ago through an Etsy friend, and was so happy to see that she is currently the featured seller on Etsy's homepage. Congratulations Elly!

I find her work so magical, charming, and thoughtful. Truly beautiful and unique!

Check out the Theater Clouds featured seller interview to read about Elly's interest in Victorian-era storytelling and picture making inventions (like tunnel books and zoetropes), her creative process, and one very special trip that she and her mother took when was a teenager to meet members of the Movable Book Society.

It's a great interview. Very inspiring!
