Meet Your Maker- 3DE Creations

This week on MYM we have Jenifer from 3DE creations. I saw Jenifer's work at an art fair in Kennsington Market and immediately fell in love (the same art fair where I saw abominable ink). You will understand why I love her work once you see it ahah (it is 100% me lol). I love pottery, but I especially love unique and interesting pottery that stands out. 3DE's work is so unique and beautiful.

How did you launch your business & what made you want to start a small business?

I learned how to crochet in 2012 during my short stint as a housewife. I was living with my husband in Arizona but wasn't legally allowed to work, so I kept myself busy by shopping at Joann's and watching crochet youtube videos. I thought my work was looking pretty professional (haha!) once I figure…

Meet Your Maker-Abominable Ink

I am SO excited for this weeks MYM post. I had gone to an art festival in Kensington market recently in Toronto and I was instantly in love with the work I saw at the booth of Abominable Ink. I absolutely love her style and when I got home went on Instagram to see of I could find her to ask if she would like to be featured on MYM (obviously she said yes and I was over the moon).



Introduce yourself and your business.

Born in Paris, France, and having worked in entertainment for the past 25 years, I've shifted gears since 2010 to pursue my many passions including starting a freelance graphic design business called Abominable Ink, as well as DJing and art.
