Why do you craft/make? How did you learn?
Primarily, I make decoupage home accessories. My love of decoupage started with my exposure to collage and art experimentation from an early age. Perfecting my decoupage techniques — we specialize in 18- and 19th-century processes — took about a decade.
What is your favorite product or piece you’ve made lately?
Handmade under-glass decoupage wall hangings featuring the 19th-century astronomical drawings by Étienne Léopold Trouvelot.
What sorts of things are inspiring you right now? Where do you look for inspiration?
Right now, it’s outer space! For me, space is aspirational and awe-inspiring — really glorious! Half of our 2018 collection is space-themed and our new table trays are really amazing. The other part of our 2018 collection is inspired by botanical imagery; nature is always featured in Why Girls wares. We are obsessed by the eccentric and extraordinary aspects of nature.
Are you bringing/selling anything special at the craft fair?
Our brand new 2018 collection featuring brand new glass table trays and wall hangings. We always have special discounts when we pop-up at shows.
