+Diana Mackie Hi Diana, thanks for getting in touch. I do already run a pinterest account ( https://www.pinterest.com/EmmelinePidgen/ ) and I've tried Instagram but closed my account a few years ago. I currently have my own online shop ( www.emmelineillustration.mysupadupa.com ) selling prints and originals, but I will consider Etsy. Thanks for the links! :-)
