Tell me a Little bit about yourself and your blog fabricandcolor.com? My name is Iwona and I live In Cracow. It seems like I’ ve always been attracted by beautiful things in this world. Most of all, I love to create things, and admiring other people’ s creativity. Almost all of my earliest memories have an artistic link to them. I’ ve Just always felt a strong connection to creativity. I’ ve been loving fashion and drawing for as long as I can remember. It’ s always seemed natural to me, and it quickly turned into a passion of mine.
How could you define your style? My style is dresses, coats, skirts and sometimes shorts, but always comfortable and feminine. I really like colors, prints, flower prints, embroidery, pastels and pleats. Because I really love mixing vintage clothes that have a history with more contemporary pieces, I tend to think of my style as a mix of the old with the new.
Tell us a little about your creative process? My creative process I typically start with a found photograph. It is the starting point, but the final image is often changed trough colour, composition etc from the original photo.
What kind of medium do you use? Am painting more on paper. I work mainly In acrylic and watercolors paint. There are so versatile. Have a low toxicity, and a very Fast dry time. Acrylic and watercolors paint are perfect for illustrations.
Please describe the space where you do most of your creation? I work from home in a my room. I’ ve got a table for drawing, an easel for painting, a table for sewing. It’s a small but very bright and colourful (chaotic) space. I sit right in front of the window so I can look down upon the people walking by and soak up the last warm rays of the afternoon sun.
