Jenny was one of my first buyers at Fabric House, the sister store to Whimsy House. She purchased some project packs of decorator fabric to make her lovely creatures from and it's still a thrill to recognize how my fabrics have been transformed! Her shop is filled with whimsical art that will bring a smile to your face and warm your heart. She is truly talented and sweet as can be. Cheers to Jenny!
1) What is your craft and what led to you to take it up?
Oh boy, well, ever since I can remember I've drawn, painted, sculpted and embroidered. Some I'm better at than others. My mom taught me to sew because I found it so interesting to "paint" with thread. I don't know what led me to draw just that as a toddler a pen & paper were my favorite toys.
2) What part of your work do you enjoy the most?
Ah, my favorite part is when I've finished the prototype of an idea and it turned out just as I'd wanted it!
3) What part of your work is the hardest?
That would be coming up with a pattern for a brand new shape for a creature, but when it finally comes together it's that much more rewarding.
4) A top ten list of your favorites
A little mushroom my mom made out of clay one day just playing around.
...item in your shop...
The koi, big or little, they are my favorites- but don't tell any of the others.
