San Francisco's Favorite Craft Fair

the life and times of my wind up bird

How did you first get involved with crafting? My windup bird t-shirts started as a hobby back in 2004. I had a lot of images from my travel photos that I wanted to translate into digital designs. Screening them on t-shirts were an unexpected option that happened organically, after experimenting on different fabrics. Things just took off from there!

What are your favorite materials to work with? Do you have a favorite color palette? Having good quality t-shirts is important, so we only screen on 100% cotton. I’ve worked with pleather, vinyl and paper in the past. In designing, I am especially into those colors that clash with one another to catch the eye.

What are your inspirations in your art and in life?

The details of everyday life!

What is your favorite song or album to listen to while working?

It depends on if I’m designing of producing, but most of the time its just NPR playing in the background.

Who are some of your favorite indie artist/crafters and why do you love them?

I love Hillary Williams screenprints of San Francisco and Oakland!

Any exciting future plans or developments in the works for your business?

Collaborate more with other artists is always an ongoing goal.
