Today we Chat with Eve from Eve's Originals.
Eve we would love to know more about you. Where do you come from?
"I was originally born & raised in Germany, but I spent 33 yrs. in the United States and moved to Tasmania 6 years ago. I now live and create in Gordon, Tasmania."
What are your passions and interests?
"Taking walks in the bush and along the coast, gardening and of course creating."
Tell us a little bit about yourself and your art or product
"I have been creating since my early childhood. My family background has many artists and musicians, so I reckon they rubbed off on me early on as they have always supported my creative mind. Most of my inspiration now comes from nature."
How long have you been an Etsy seller?
"I opened my shop in 2009, but needed to close in 2011 to move here to Tassie. However life got a bit busy and I just recently re-opened my Etsy shop again to bring my new creations back to the world at large."
What inspired you to begin creating?
"My family at a very young age. Someone was always creating something. We have glass blowers, miniature train makers, seamstresses and more in my family and so I always got to try something new. I love using my hands and colours."
What do you like about being an Etsy seller?
"That I can bring my creations to the furthest corner of the world no matter where in the world I'm living."
Where do you work on your pieces?
"I have a revamped over-sized 2 car garage that I turned into a workshop/studio, art class area and display area in Gordon where I live. When the sun shines I can also be found on the patio creating, depending on what I am working on."
Thanks so much for chatting with us. Where can you be found?
