What classes do you teach at CraftJam?

Paper Flower Wreaths

How long have you been crafting?

As long as I can remember!

What is your favorite thing about crafting?

It's when I get to put myself into the work and create something that is one of a kind. I enjoyed the process of figuring things out and learn what works and what doesn't.

What’s the coolest thing you’ve ever made?

I've always wanted to combine crafts and technology together. So last year I combined my paper cut with projection mapping where I hand cut the outline of the flowers and collaborated with a motion designer (Paskorn from @Akaliko8_pas) to create the artwork and projected the motion graphics on top of my piece. It was a really cool experience and we want to make a 2.0 version by making this interactive.

What do you like about CraftJams?

A chance to meet like-minded people. I learn through teaching as well because I'm self-taught so it's always nice to share what I learn and see how people adapt them into their own versions. It is rewarding for me to see their faces after they have completed the flowers that I geared them to find new inspirations and discovered that they can do it as well.

If you could CraftJam with anyone, who would it be?

Brit Morin of Brit+Co, Joy Cho of Oh Joy and Shay Mitchell — my woman crush everyday!

When you aren't crafting, what are you doing?

I am a Visual & UX designer on a daily basis. Yup… a lot of screen time.

Best music or playlist to listen while crafting?

I often switch between Disney songs, Broadway soundtrack, Billy Joel and Guardian of the Galaxy vol.2 playlist. Can't pick one it's just all depends on my mood that day.
