Today we are talking to Cohen, who's shop is pacokeco on Etsy. These cute tickets caught my eye one day as I was surfing around Etsy- they made me want to check out the rest of her shop. you can do the same.... www.pacokeco.etsy.com

What inspired you to make this product?
As with 90% of the items in my shop, this began as a request for a custom item. My buyers are a creative bunch. They give me the ideas and I just execute them. Often, my humble little paper bits are just starting points or embellishments for larger or more elaborate craft pieces. Some pieces have even been made into jewellery!

What inspires you on a daily basis?
The almost neurotic need to stay busy and my love of deconstructing, recycling and repurposing. Most recently, I pulled apart an old sweater and reknit it into a divine, airy, mesh scarf while watching the 3 hour movie Artificial Intelligence.

Where do you live and how does that influence your art?
I live in a small blue collar city in Ontario, Canada made up primarily of auto workers. People here are practical and thrifty and my tendancies are to be fancy and artistic. I realize you can be all of those things, just not all at the same time.
