Currently, I am playing with plastic (so fun!) and also with bags of unfinished projects in order to keep going with the theme of 'unfinished stories'. Here is a look at a few of my projects over the past 3 years, which I hope inspires you to start or continue to create stuff, too!

  • 100 days, my #WIP & I'm in Uppercase!
