HANNAH ARMSTRONG, 26 - QUIET CRICKET STUDIO
OWNER + BOTANICAL BABE
WHY I GOT INTO THE BIZ / WHAT INSPIRES ME:
I've been an artistic person my entire life, and drawn to plants with an increasing passion. I've worked seasonal and part-time jobs in coffee and on organic farms for years, and am moving towards a more fulfilling world of employment. Starting Quiet Cricket Studio with my partner is my way of moving towards unifying all of my passions, incorporating plants, working with my hands, and being creative. I'm inspired by the world around me and want to share high quality crafts that I make, as well as support other artists breaking into the professional world.
Right now I'm making soy candles scented with essential oils, as well as botanical illustrations in the form of prints and postcards. This winter I'd like to get back into the world of woodblock printing on handmade paper, as well as book-making. I intend to keep pushing my art and craft further by drawing from nature.
