Wow, what a neat interview!  And life!   Grin  It sounds like your mom was so inspiring, and now you are, too.  That's so special.  And your crafts are lovely.  You're so lucky to be able to do these sorts of things as part of your career!

Awesome interview Jennie, and congrats on being a featured Artist! Your work is really inspiring, and you are such an uplifting and supportive person too! I'm super impressed by all your abilities.

My favorite project of yours is the Marauder's Map Crochet Hook Roll!

Yaaay Jennie! Congratulations on your well-deserved fame, and I hadn't realized how many of my favourite things on Craftster have been yours! I should have known.

This Quarter's Featured Artist is sheepBlue!  sheepBlue posts all over Craftster and does a lovely job in everything!



How long have you been crafting?  What's the first thing you remember crafting?

Ive been crafting for as long as I can remember. Both my parents are very creative and raised me to want to find my creative outlets as well. Trying to remember back to the first thing I made, the thing that sticks out is a ceramic bird I made in preschool or kindergarten. It was glazed a beautiful deep blue and I was so proud of it; I think now it sits on my dads computer desk somewhere in pieces. Over the years appendages slowly fell off, but somehow never got lost.

What's your favorite media?

Its so hard to just pick one because I find inspiration in so many different crafts and materials. That being said, I will forever love sculpture and anything that has elements of texture in them, especially if theyre made from recycled or unconventional materials; I am such a tactile girl, I always have my hands all over anything with an interesting texture because it brings another level of connection to a piece of art that really engages your senses in an instinctual kind of way. Lately, I have been playing a lot with textural types of art built off of canvases using polymer clay layered over armatures (most of the time foil) and then painted or layered with papers and other crazy things. I love mixing materials because the textural aspect tends to grow from that.

What inspires you?

 Oh god, everything, especially anything quirky and unusual. I find that a lot of my work draws inspiration from the people and art around me because I fall so in love with it I want to try and emulate it with my own personal style, and slowly as I work on a project or several in a series it evolves into its own unique thing.

Do you have a crafty/creative philosophy?

I dont intentionally have one, though I suppose if I did it would be to try and experiment with everything, and to not be discouraged if a project doesnt go the way you wanted it to. I have made plenty of things that I didnt deem worthy of posting on craftster just because they were pretty bad, but after trying again and again to create the vision in my head I can usually get closer to my goal and learn a lot in the mean time.

On what other boards can Craftster members find your work posted?
I post a lot on the Needlework and Papercrafting boards as well as sometimes on the More Art, Less Craft board.

More Art, Less Craft - I love triptychs!


Papercrafts - Awesome Altered Puzzle!


Needlecrafts - I love felt!



What's your favorite creation that you've posted to Craftster?

If I had to pick one Id say my Day of the Dead canvas is one of my favorites. I rarely remake something because I get bored after the first time wanting to move onto a different project, but I loved this so much I had to make another for myself. It was made with acrylic paint, puffy paint, glitter glue and sculpey clay for the skull piece. The texture of all the lines framing the skull are fantastic though and I love touching it a lot.

What's your favorite item on Craftster created by someone else?

You are killing me, how can I choose? Lately I have been completely lusting after FoxyBlues artwork because it so beautifully detailed and textural!!! Love it! This piece in particular is my favorite.
