What difficulties did you face at the beginning of your career? I faced many difficulties at the beginning of my career. The main one was being unknown within the industry and trying to known takes time and a lot of effort.
Is there anything you wish you knew at the beginning of your career? It has taken me almost 10 years to find the happy medium between designs I love and commerciality. If there were one thing I wish to have know it would be how much of a difference this makes when you want to run a successful business.

Is having talent enough in order to be a successful designer? Unfortunately being talented is never enough. You have to be very determined and able to take criticism when it is thrown in your direction.
Do you think that the current phenomenon ‘globalisation’ has a negative impact on local cultures/arts/crafts? Globalisation has definitely changed the way that small craft businesses work and survive. I still enjoy doing craft fairs and meeting the customers that love my products. It’s personally very important to me to develop relationships with customers and it’s hard to do this online. Although, it is also vital to have a good understanding of the Internet and use it for its advantages. For example, reaching people around the world and marketing.
Did you ever go through a period when you thought about quitting your job as a designer? So many times, the one thing that always Spurs me on is such positive comments from customers. Nothing compares to the feeling of someone receiving one of your designs and contacting you to say how much enjoyment it brings them.
