Artist Highlight: Edison Rex

~ ~
Today I am happy to showcase the talents of Maeg from the Etsy shop, Edison Rex. Maeg has a whimsical, imaginative style. I am especially drawn to the narwhalus and hedgicorn prints. Now, I want a pet hedgicorn! Please welcome Maeg to the Daily Etsian!

1. Tell us about yourself.
My name is Maeg. I live in Western MA with my husband, stepdaughter, and cat. We're expecting a baby this January, too. I work as a retail artist by day and moonlight as Edison Rex!

2. What/Who inspires your work? What keeps you going every day?
I am constantly inspired by the career and work of Ashley Goldberg. I love her work and get a lot of drive just from looking at her career and the careers of others who are making a living selling their art. My faith in hard work also keeps me going!

3. Name your favorite books/authors, bands, artists, and websites:
Right now I am reading a lot of Ruth Rendell (aka Barbara Vine) and all the Sookie Stackhouse novels. I listen to everything from Ryan Adams to Kanye West, and read Ashley G's blog (, the Black Apple's blog (, and Tom and Lorenzo's blog ( close to daily.

4. What color would you be if you were a color? Why?
Oh dear. Normally I would say red, but pregnancy has made me oddly zen. So, a deep blue.

5. What advice would you give to other artists?
Only the advice I am continually trying to give myself! Keep working on your craft, be persistent. And it's okay to make money!
