Hello there! Today I'm delighted to welcome meghan burch, a screen print artist who makes fantastic homegoods, accessories, and apparel. I've had my eyes on her folded bowls for a long time and am excited to introduce you to her. Enjoy!
1. Why did you decide to open an online shop?
I wanted to start my business slowly, and small. I also knew that my market was online, so if I wanted to connect with them, then I had to be online. Joining the Etsy community just made sense.
2. Who/what inspires you?
My inspiration comes from everywhere, but I'm particularly fascinated with growth patterns in nature, the installations and sculptures of Tara Donovan, and children's art and development process. I also couldn't do what I do without surrounding myself with art and others who make it. My husband, an illustrator, and I help and support each other. I also work closely with another artist teaching in the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art's hands-on space, and through the collaboration get constant practice in the creative process and exposure to great art and design.
