Have You Met...EP Designs

 
One of our fabulous regulars is the wonderful Elena of EP Designs.  Elana's  artful enhancements of ordinary items really do need to be seen to be believed.  Her artwork is soft and subtle - it has a true shabby-chic feel to it and would look lovely with many different styles of interior décor.

Grab a cuppa and learn a little more about EP Designs...

1) Tell us a little bit about EP Designs and the items you create.
The tag line on the EP Designs logo is - A World of New and Recreated Treasures - This sums up what EP Designs is delving into - creating or recreating pieces into new treasures. It’s about seeing the beauty in old or discarded items & recreating them into a new creation, something that is inspiring, decorative and beautiful.

2) Where do you find inspiration for your creations?
Just fossicking through op shops or recycling yards gets the imagination going.  Visiting antique and home ware stores does the same thing for me – love it! But anything from flicking through interior décor magazines, walking into an art supply store, picking up a vintage tea cup or going to a quaint cafe, can inspire my colour schemes and designs and even what a piece will be recreated into.

3) How does the market experience contribute to your business?
The Handmade Show is the only market I do so it provides an avenue for people to see my work in the flesh and create awareness of EP Designs. It provides me with face to face contact with customers and the opportunity to chat about my work. Feedback is important too as it helps to me to make changes or improvements. I also love the opportunity I have to meet other creative people.
 
4) Which one of your items should everyone have in their home?
Just about everyone loves treasure so whether new, old or recreated, treasures are especially nice to own. So, it’s whatever each person would see as a treasure…. But to choose something then I’d have to say a candelabra – it’s not just decorative but a useful piece for holding elegant candles which help create a warm, cosy ambience in any room.

5) When not at The Handmade Show, where can we find you?
