A big part of why I am so enthusiastic about sharing creative photography on crafthaus is that I am always trying to find imagery that hopefully inspires us craft artists to break away from the typical way we present our work to the public. I recognize that there is a fine line between a beautiful image that captivates the eye and a huge distraction from the work we do, we had that discussion on crafthaus many times, however, some crafthaus artists already use dramatic imagery cleverly when showing their work and I find it a refreshing break from the usual meh images I often see. Why don't we craft artists team up more with other creative people, such as really inventive hair stylists, art photographers, designers, architects and see what imagery comes out of those collaborations?

Even without the high roller people involved in this shoot, we as creatives, can't we come up with good ideas like this?

When I finished drawing the mural, I traced my left hand at the very end of the continuous line (I am right handed), in order to start introducing myself, as the only inhabitant of this room, into the mural itself. To…Continue
