Hello my name is Virginia, and I am a painter, printmaker and for the last 15 years a tattooer. Along with my gorgeous 4-year-old son, Angus, this is our eclectic shop that is a tool to explore creativity as I home school. I am a widowed mum that has returned to college (a junior at SCAD) so the need for an extra income and to teach my son has given birth to FamiliarStrangers. Our shop will have a myriad of items as whim will be our muse and the wealth of imagination in this community will have influence on our work, hence our shop name.

In the spirit of community and goodwill, our very first item and at least one item a month will be a PIF (Pay It Forward) and free shipping on items that have the Angus’ Choice seal on the item’s image, so visit often for these and other specials.

I am very new to Etsy and this type of venue, so I am open to suggestions, ideas and any issues that may arise, so please just convo me at any time. I can also be reached at my other shop, VAndow at which will be a shop solely for my painting, limited edition prints, and photographs.

Angus and I are very excited about our new venture and hope you will enjoy what we make with our 4 hands.
