Magazine feature

Being in print is always exciting, so I  was really happy to be approached by the very lovely editor of Grace magazine in China to feature my work. I wanted to share some of the resulting article here... 
I love the look of the Chinese characters but have included bits of the interview below in English for those who, like me, don't have a languages degree!
 

What's your normal day like?
A typical day can include taking photographs of new items for my online shop, speaking to one of my lovely customers about a commission, or designing and creating new items (my favorite part!)

If I’m beginning a new piece I usually start by browsing through my huge collection of papers, buttons, and other  ephemera; I never fail to find something to inspire me.
What made you decide to be an artist?
I don’t think I ever made a decision. I was very aware of and uplifted by color from a very early age, and I spent hours as a child drawing and painting. 
      
What idea would you like to share with the world
 Beauty and meaning can be found in the most unexpected places; often it’s just about looking at things in the right way.
