Friday Feature- Apryl from byapryl.etsy.com

Hello…
My name is Apryl. I live in the New Orleans, LA area with my husband and fur babies!

My Craft…
I'm a wire tree artist but I also dabble in paper goods.





           














My Inspiration…
My sculptures are inspired by my grandmother who taught me how to make them!

My AHA moment of being an Artist…
I had tried going to college for graphic design but found it too restrictive. It was luck really that let me put together the idea of an online business with the beautiful work I have watched my grandmother make for years.

My Creative sides are ignited by…
Beads! I have sooo many beads that I have had to ground myself from bead shows until I use them up! I just like using different combinations of colors and textures to make each tree different. I also have a secret passion for beautiful paper but I keep that one in check...for now!

My Masterpiece…
I almost hated to sell this piece but I can't keep them all.



Apart from Crafting …
I'm a huge nerd so video games and dungeons and dragons are my favorite past times!

When I am busy creating …
I like to focus on what I'm doing with just some music or the tv for background noise. I'm lucky enough to have a separate office for my business but it can be a bit quiet!

In ten years I would be…
Doing what I'm doing now. I'm so happy being able to create full time. Of course if I hit the lottery then instead I’ll be trying out ever single art and craft I've ever wanted to try!
