Meet the Maker #4

HELLO BECKY AKA @TIT_TS

 

Soooooo Becky, how are you finding the winter so far?

The winter is my favourite time of year! It allows me to have an excuse to stay inside and make lots of things.

 

What’s your favourite material to work with?

My favourite medium is embroidery as ive got the most experience but I’m really enjoying using fimo clay cos there’s so much you can do with it! (Fave being making miniature vaginas ?)


When did you start making things and how long have you been making things for?

I’ve been creative all my life, but have really honed in on my specialism in the past year or so. I created my embroidery account as a bit of a boredom thing around a year and a half ago and didn’t realise people would actually like my stuff. Also if you scroll down my feed it shows that practice really helps you to become better at something ?

 

What’s your favourite piece you’ve ever made?

My favourite piece has to be my Mia Wallace portrait which I’ve recently sold! It was hard to part with as it was my first portrait but I’m so glad she has a home now.

 

 

What do you do/tell yourself at times when you think, ‘Oh no, I don’t have enough time to do anything creative’?

When I don’t have time to be creative! Which seems all the time now I’ve started a new job, is just give yourself 5 minutes of the day – even if it’s just a quick sketch on the tram or thinking of things you could create while you’re walking home from work.

 

Any advice to other local creatives?

My advice is just make stuff ! Do stuff ! And put it out there, you never know who will fall in love with it ?????

Thank you for your wise words of encouragement Becky!!

 

Becky’s jewellery will be available to buy on Sunday at the CH Plus + Dulcimer Christmas Market !
