When and why did you first start making your art?
I have always liked making things and so I like to try all different crafts. I started doing 3d origami a few years ago. I found it a bit limited so I then started doing 3d origami painting, which is basically pixel art. Because there aren’t enough colours in paper I also then found this quite limited as well. That’s when I decided to look for other alternatives. My partner does diamond painting but I didn’t fancy that. I remembered Hama beads from when my children were younger and it just ticked all the boxes.
Can you talk us through your creative process? How do you go about planning and creating a piece?
If it’s a portrait style piece I usually spend hours trying different apps/websites converting until I find a result I’m happy with. If it’s more simple and cartoony then I draw it out on a paint program. As I don’t have an actual workplace I do one board at a time.
