Featured artist: Orna Willis, Adorn Atelier

I want to introduce you today to the talented Orna Willis,
Orna is a needlepoint artist that was kind enough to answer an interview i prepared for her, hooray !!!
Orna creates  wonderfully ethnic needlepoint designs. 
want to get to know Orna better and join one of her online classes ? you'll have to read the interview till the end ... :)

When did you start doing needlepoint? (excuse my banal questions but i just had to know...)
I started by accident in 1994, when I tagged along with a friend who was going to a needlepoint shop to buy threads.  The threads were hanging off the walls, and spilling out of baskets, like colorful fruit, and I was mesmerized. 

What do you love best about needlepoint?
Since my art training began in painting, I love to experiment with mixing fiber, as if the fibers were water or oil paints.  I love exploring how to get a certain effect from mixing two different threads, what colors and textures can I bring about?

I noticed colors inspire you, am I right? What shades do you love best? Any idea why?
I must say I do not have favorite colors.  I love them all. I may go through phases when I’m in a puke green mood or a watermelon red mood, but all in all I don’t shy away from almost any color.  I have, however, found out that the colors that speak to me most are the ones that don’t have a one-word name; for instance I don’t like blue, but I love metallic/gray blue, or I don’t like orange, but give me a salmon/orange and I’m in heaven.  Colors with one-word names tend to be less sophisticated, and have less depth.  
hmmmm.... love this approach, makes my mind start spinning...

I noticed you do small wearable items as well as really large ones, which kind do you prefer ?
I am always working on several projects at a time.  I usually have one large intricate design I work on and those I publish once or twice a year.  I do love the smaller projects that one can wear and I always look for new ways to display and wear a smaller project.  Designing needlepoint jewelry is a favorite of mine.
I knew it ! (2 point ?)

How did you get into teaching ? and what do you love best about it ?
I began teaching very naturally because I enjoy sharing my knowledge.  Since I am self-taught in needlepoint, I found that there were many things I learned from experience that were not available in regular books about needlepoint.  I never learned “the rules” so I was free to look at things from a fresh point of view.  That’s what I love teaching my students.  The best thing someone can say to me is: “Wow!  I never knew that!”
as if you took the words out of my mouth ! WOW!

Is there a craft you would like to do and never go to?
I would love to learn carpentry. I’m very drawn to understanding how something is put together.  As a child I loved putting together model airplanes because I saw how they came together and how from a big pile of pieces I could make something very precise and beautiful.
I also absolutely love metalsmithing, making jewelry.  It is fascinating to me to see how a piece of jewelry comes together from a flat piece of metal.  Metalsmithing is something I do. Once a year I take an intense one-on-one month long training with a professional jewelry maker and then I put it all aside till the next year.
wow! you make me jealous !!!! im going to add it to the "to dream about" list :)

Do you craft full time? If yes, was it always your occupation?
I craft full time and a half! Brilliant answer :-)  Years ago, I was a single mother to my eldest daughter and I could not afford to do any crafting as an occupation.  I had to support the two of us and I worked in many different types of jobs.  I am very grateful for this because when I began my own business, I found out that all the skills I learned from the jobs I did in those times, I could now use them in my business.  If it is bookkeeping, marketing, or filing, I use all these skills in my business today.

What inspires you ?

Who inspires you ?

Does the internet and technology influence your work ?
Oh, the internet and technology, we have a love/hate relationship!  Both influence my work in that I can see so much more of the art world and become acquainted with so many more artists and designers.  Technology is a big asset for my online teaching and publications of my designs.  The downside is that both keep me from creating more, I fight that everyday.

Join Orna for an online class today !

A big project i was holding as secret is on air as of yesterday, as you can understand from the headline I'm offering my first online classes , finally not only people form my area can learn my ISK (invisible spool knitting) technique, but EVERYONE !

My wire crochet ISK classes are hosted and organized by the talented Orna Willis, a needlepoint artist and a well experienced teacher. Orna promised to give me an interview, so stay tuned it will happen in a couple of days. if you dont have patient you can read about her and see her online classes here.

Orna  has invited me together with a  talented group of artist to to offer our online classes on her site, isn't that generous of her ?

In this first series of online classes of mine, yes... I couldn't open just one, you know me...
So, as I was saying, I will be offering 4 classes, 3 beginners online classes where no experience in ISK (invisible spool knitting) is required and one for advanced students.

The 3 beginners classes will focus each one on a different field, one on jewelry making, one on small sculptures and one on lampshades.

When ?  Where?  How ?
The Online Classes begin the weekend of April 21, 2012 and run for 8 weeks, ending the weekend of June 2nd.

About two weeks before the start of class, you will receive a kit containing everything you will need to participate in the class.

Just before the start of class I will contact you with sign in instructions for the online forum. You will sign in and see the classroom and get a feel for how the forum works.

Every two weeks, another lesson will be posted in your class forum. In addition to that, I will schedule 4 live chat sessions throughout the 8 week class period. You can ask questions and chat with other students.  I will be there in person to answer your questions throughout the class!

In addition, there will be a blog/comment section for you to post general questions. I will be checking back periodically to answer any questions that crop up.

so what do you say ? isn't it exciting ?
feel free to contact me for questions !

My next wire crochet secret project

I'm working on a secret wonderful project ! I can't yet tell you more right now , but I can invite you to enjoy some of the preparations with me.
As part of this project I decided its time I learn how to properly put on makeup, when I was a teen I was an expert , but along the years I sort of lost touch.
I happen to have a dear friend which is a makeup expert (lucky me...), her name is Taly Peled  , she has her own make-up studio in Jerusalem and her own makeup brand. (check her out here Tally Peled).
So where were we ?
It was a nice winter Friday morning, a day that is all fun and no work, I headed to Jerusalem with a friend to meet Taly in her studio.
Jerusalem for me is like going abroad, so we turned the GPS on, in hope that it will lead us safely and quickly, I'm not a big fan of GPS and this time proved me right.... it took us the longest way possible, we almost got lost..
but that's for another day and another story.
Taly helped me pick the right colors for me and explained in detail the various steps and how to use all these colors ..... it was such fun !
I memorized it all in hope I will manage to remember it when the day to use it comes.... cant tell you when.... its part of the secret.
