3 Quick Questions: Blossomnbird


I've been watching Karen's little world Blossomnbird progress for a while now. I love the way she combines colour, pattern and texture, I love how her designs translate across so many different mediums but most of all I love that her sweet creations make me smile.

What inspired you to start creating?

Hmmm what inspired me to start creating???
Ooo that's tricky to say in just a few words...
My Grandmother and her Mother were both artists....though I spent a lot of time outdoors as a child (not doing artsy-craftsy activities) but my favouite game with my friends was making gifts for each other out of things that we found on the beach....
I've always loved the idea that something amazing can be created out of the simplest of materials. Especially something unique that can affect and inspire.
I guess too, it's a way to express myself. A form of communication and connection...I'm very visual and tactile; not much of a conversationalist, not much of a writer, not much of a dancer, not a musician and I definetly cannot sing too well!! ...
I can't imagine not doing what i do.


If you could spend more time on one thing, what would it be?

Well aside from long days at the beach with my family or playing creatively with my daughter. I'd say drawing and painting. But I love fabrics too and always end up wanting to play with and surround myself with yummy vintage fabrics and textiles.

What's next for Blossomnbird?

What's next? Developing my art...experimenting with and refining things to share...
Maybe show my work in a few more brick and mortar places too...that would be nice.
