Etsy artisan interview with: SolidArtCollective!

http:// SolidArtCollective.etsy.com

How did you first get interested in what you do?

i've been a visual artist for 12+ years - come from a family of artists so loved everything about visual art, sculpture, animation etc; the crocheted items surfaced from a friend who was picking up knitting. she wondered how to crochet so i showed her and it just stuck. i learned to crochet when i was 8 and didn't pick it up again until almost 30 years later! crocheted so many items that the Etsy experience was inevitable.

Who is your favorite artist?
i have a long list, but the ones off the top of my head are Condo, Bacon, Matisse, Alma-Tadema, Stevie Wonder & Bowie.
