This week I would like to introduce you to the wonderful mind of Ira Grant: a terrific artist whose work may be already known by many of you.
Ira´s designs are not only pretty and stylish, they are very creative and spectacular. She has reached the urban women with her trendy bags and I´m sure a lot of you will start "drooling" with the pictures of this interview.
Let´s know a bit more about Ira:
1)When did you start crafting? What was your motivation?
When? Hm...I think since I was a child, part of my study in the school, my motivation at the time was simple a good mark! I have parents who always want us to do well and we, the children will get lots of pressy if our school report doing very well, so will get lots of pressy, that kind a good motivation for a child I supposed:)
2)Which one of your designs makes you feel prouder of yourself?
I don't have particular favourite, but I love my burlap bag series and I have lots of ideas for my burlap next project, and of course My Multitask Bag! I still can't forget the feeling when it was pick as an etsy finds last summer:)
3)What kind of things inspire you?Beautiful dresses!
Oh yes I can help my self to think like this:' I need to cut the sleeves, make it short and change this bit or that bit then that dress will become a gorgeous bag!' everytime I saw those beautiful dresses:)
4)Do you have any favorite book, movie, comic, etc?
Which one and why is it your favorite? Book, I read different type of books, currently I read Japanese Textile by Anna Jackson, hubby bought the book for me and I read anything written by John Grisham, I also love Japanese crafter books.Movie? Don't really watch it lately, but enjoying Mamma Mia with my daughter together a lot:)Comic, Garfield because of his naughtyness and that sleepy eyes! Tintin because snowy the little dog:)
5)Do you have any mania or obsession?
Fabrics, too much buying them! Many unnecessary purchased, is not because I want to make bag with it but just because I love it when I saw and touch it!
6)Is there a place you´ve visited that left a big impression in you? If so, why?
New York, that city lives 24 hours a day! If I still ambitious like I was once before, that city will be a perfect place to me! I start my etsy shop after came back for a holiday there!
Never stop learning! Art or crafting is about imaginations, it can be be ups and downs, you don't know what will happen in the future. Just keep doing what you always love to do.
8)Where can people find you? (blog, twitter, flickr, facebook...)
Yes, I'm a mum and a wife, somehow my supportive hubby and lovely daughter made me more creative, and I know without them I wouldn't even think to do what I'm doing now.
