Tell us a little about yourself using a Haiku. 
Fan of birds and crafts
Feminist, cheeky geek
Silly but lovely things
Tell us a little about the origins of A Superb Wren.
After a particularly nasty break-up, I needed to distract myself and how better than with pretty crafts? I found it a great way to channel my heartbreak into creativity and productivity. Now I can’t stop!
Describe your creative process. 
It usually involves settling in with a few beers, spreading my craft supplies all around me, chucking on a few movies and hoeing into it.
What inspires you the most? 
All my favourite things keep me going; feminism, animals and birds, tattoos, beautiful patterns and shapes from bygone eras and, possibly most of all, the eternal optimism and lovely face of my dog.
Name some of your most favourite local artists and designers. 
What are your ultimate dreams for A Superb Wren? 
That people will look at my little pieces in their homes and smile.
What will will we find from A Superb Wren at our November Bend and Snap Market? 
I’m back on the market trail after some time off, some a bunch of new stuff. Plus the usual femmo, nerdy, pretty things as always!
