Behind the Scenes with The Crafter Studio

It’s with great pleasure today that I introduce Diana from The Crafter Studio. Diana resides in Heredia, Costa Rica and is an amigurumi expert. Her creations are whimsical, fun, and brimming with character. I’ve picked out a few of my personal favourites to accompany this feature, but I urge you to check out her full range here… after you read our behind the scenes interview of course!

The Crafter Studio Project started…

After what I thought was an unfortunate event. I was trying to change my university major and failed, for the second time. Feeling sad, I decided to take a sabbatical year. However, what was I going to do for a year!? Looking for things to do, and trying several techniques, I finally found crochet and felt in love with amigurumi!

My Artistic / educational background is…

Well remember I said I was trying to change my major? I finally did it! Now I am a graphic design student in Universidad de Costa Rica fine arts school. We first take two years in which we experiment with different art techniques, from paint to sculpture, and many more interesting and awesome art fields.

Three things that make my business unique are…

Art is my passion and I make all my items using artistic techniques. It is one of the most important things in my life, and it makes me truly happy. Also, when I create something, I always think about the reaction the customer may have when they received their item, and this makes me create my items in the best way I can.

When I look around my workspace I see…

Me, with lots of different creative projects on the go! I love to work on a variety of items per day, rather than working on one technique. For example, when I need a rest from crocheting, I draw or take pictures.

My favourite materials to work with are…

Yarn! Acrylic, paper, pigment liner, and watercolors (I’ve been thinking about introducing illustrations to my shop).

The most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen is…

I try to look for beauty in all things, beauty in different types, as Van Gogh said “Admire as much as you can, most people do not admire enough”. So I enjoy the beauty of everyday, the sky, flowers, animals, smiles…

My  idea of complete happiness is…

Making what you love around the ones you love the most.

Three things that make me smile each day are…

Family, Friends and Art. This includes crocheting, drawing, painting, photography, movies, and music!

If I were a superhero, my super power would be…

Flying! Imagine all the places I could visit, and the photos I could take! The places I could draw…

My three most prized possessions (apart from my family) are…

My camera, my pencil pouch, and my drawing books.
