This is what Zinal speaks about her journey as a crafter and her story of being a craftpreneur….
Hello everyone, I am Zinal Choksi. I was born and raised in Surat. The creativity bee was buzzing inside me since long. I was a home maker and was keen to do something independently in my life. Thus, with the support of my family and my husband, I am a “mompreneur” now!
How it’s all started? (My Crafting Journey!)
From childhood, I was interested in artistic stuff and was always fond of colours and brushes. After marriage, when I shifted to my new home, I was eager to add new unique things to decorate my house. I strived to do something of my own and while decorating my new house, the idea of my page “I creations” popped in my head.
What Inspired me?
When I saw the extraordinary art work done by the great crafters through youtube videos and on Facebook, I was inspired to try something new. Also, the appreciation from my customers has encouraged me to give them the best work possible. My 4 year old son is always there to judge my work and inspire me to do more.
My Most Favourite Crafts of All?
It’s very difficult to choose one project. As a crafter, I put all my heart and effort in each and every piece I create. For me, perfection is my motto . However, if I had to choose one, I would choose making cards with different techniques.
My style of crafting?
Art has no boundaries and I love to explore new things everyday. Specially, I prefer vintage look in terms of colours and elements for my creations. I use different mediums such as decoupage, mix media, paper crafting, etc to create new items.
My Future Plans?
As I said earlier, I love to explore new form of arts and for now, I am excited to do abstract work.
Message for all Crafters!
