In my book Paper Crafting, I featured a magic photo frame with invisible hinges. It's really just another version ofjacob's Ladder. VH: Were either of your parents crafty? CD: Not really. My father was an engineer and my mother knit some. It was my grandmother who was the hard-core knitter in the family. She taught me to both knit and crochet when I was in grade school. VH: Now, as a professional designericrafter, is there an equally important moment for you? CD: I never thought of myself as being a designer, much less a professional designer.
ER: - •, • 43 VH: Does most of your inspiration come from the same street art that you used to celebrate at your gallery? ER: I would say that a lot of my work is graffiti-inspired imagery, but I'm also a nature freak, so that really got infused in my work as well. Then, as a graphic designer, I study patterns, so my whole new line is related to that. Of course, some of it is based on what will sell. At first, I think about what images I would want to put on a T-shirt or a wall, because that's where most people use my stencils.
VH: If that had been presented ER: Thank you. You totally just put it into the words I was looking for. Think about all the patterns and shapes in geometry and knitting. Exactly! But it's kind of like sneaking healthy ingredients into treats. our educational system is in this country. But something that simple and that fundamental absolutely would have changed my educational path. VH: Well, that's just a big statement about where ER: Sure. VH: Is there anything else you'd like to say about what crafting means to you or has given you?
