What is your favourite thing that you’ve ever made/drawn/photographed?

When life gets a bit monotonous, dreary, predictable and dull, how do you motivate yourself to keep going?

Why did you start crafting?
I learnt to weld as a hobby and found I saw things in the scrap pile that others didn’t. Took a few evening classes and made sculptures. Sold some. Got a commission. Sold more. Redundancy from a job that became boring give me a chance and those I respected all thought I was going to be an artist. Regrets are the things you never do. So I became a sculptor.

How do you spend your free time if you aren’t crafting?
