What got you started crafting?
I started crafting when i was in kindergarten, my mom bought me 'cut and glue' book for children and i got the 'calling' ever since. Then when i realized that English and Art were the only subjects i got an A+ on it, i believe i was born to be an Artist . for real...
What is your source of inspiration?
Pop art colors, Indonesian cultures and traditions, graphic patterns, something weird , mix and match media and also the fashion trends.
What have you made recently?
The Statement Necklaces and earrings that inspired by East meets West culture, i tried to mix Indonesia traditional cloth called Batik with some lace fabrics or even Shoe laces. Also some accessories that inspired by pop art and summer colors. I' ve played a lot with mixed media for the details recently.
Where do you sell your crafts presently?
I used to sell my stuff on Etsy . But since i got married and got busy with my immigration visa, i decided to close it for awhile. But, i still have them posted on my Facebook page and sell them through friends. I am also using Blogspot and Deviantart to blog or showcase the items .
Why are handmade crafts important to you?
Handmade tells story. Every item has their own story. How they made and when they made. Always a touch of personal feelings and hearts on every item.
