Featured Vendor: Esabel

Her attitude is humble, her images dreamy. She signs her art "Esabel."
"For as long as I can remember that is how I sign my artwork," declares this 34 year-old artist named Isabel. She was raised by Portuguese immigrant parents in a Californian small town, called Hilmar. "Just south of Turlock, we have a cheese factory, " she tells us, "I'm not surprised you've never heard of it." Isabel moved to the Sacramento area eight years ago, where she came looking for work.

"I've always been one of those people who, if I needed something I'm more likely to make it than to go out and find it.  I make scarves. I've been drawing since I was 5, and painting since 16.  Mostly for myself, friends and family." 
Original art by Esabel, now available at the Midtown Bazaar
Not one to waste hours, Isabel uses her free time to make things. When she was laid off and looking for work, she also started selling her artwork and scarves to friends. Recently, Isabel discovered the community of the Midtown Bazaar, and began selling her arts and crafts here. "It's been a great experience," says this busy as ever artist, "the other vendors are supportive and very kind with their advice and help."
