1. What inspires you to come up with new designs?
There are so many things that I find inspiring. Everyday life inspires me. The things that surrounds us, pictures and photos that I see in magazines inspires me. Music plays a big part too! It allows and gives me so much room to imagine. The ability to create and inject my personal style into my pieces continues to inspire me.
2. How long have you been creating?
I have been creating since I was a young child. I was always interested in crafts. Cross stitching was and continues to be one of my favourite past time. But it was about 4-5 years ago that when I first touched paper clay that I started creating miniatures seriously.
3. Where do you do your work? Do you have a dedicated area of your home, or?
I do my work in my bedroom. Unfortunately I don’t have a luxury of my own craft room or studio, but hopefully one day, I will be able to have one of my own.
4. Tell us about a goal you have for your business
It is my sincere desire that through my miniature creations, people would be transported into a world of fantasy and delight. I’m always so happy to hear customers telling me that they cannot take their eyes off my creations when they hold it in their hands. Teaching is a new goal for my business as well. It is empowering to hear students tell me that they never thought they could create something so intricate and detail. I hope I can travel to teach students all around the world.
5. What is your favorite album?
I love jazz, bossa nova and urban groove. It’s so hard just to pick one favourite album but a few of my favourite artistes include Sade, Celso Fonseca, Blue Six, Aya and Diana Krall.
6. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Hopefully still creating miniatures and teaching. 5 years is a long time, but I would love to continue to do what I love.
7. What is your favorite thing to do on a weekend?
Relaxing, crafting while listening to music, or watching a DVD, looking through magazines and churning out ideas in my mind. Sometimes I like to go to the craft store or go into a cake shop to get inspirations.
8. Tell us about a new skill you'd like to learn
I would really love to learn floral arrangement. I’ve taken a one day course and loved working with flowers.
