Amy Butler, Artist, Designer and Smart Creative Business Woman!

It’s Amy Butler, as charming and sweet as ever!  I was just so thrilled to interview her! She is a creative business powerhouse with products that range from sewing patterns, fabric, yarn, wallpaper to luggage! Her designs can even grace your electronic devices! You can see hear her talk about her thoughtful approach to branding herself and her product lines. I like how she mixes a disciplined approach to her work with remaining open to new opportunities so seamlessly. You can find a comprehensive lists of where to find all her products on her website. Her website also has links to flickr groups where you can see how people have used her fabrics! Oh! I might have to add my bedroom curtains intothe mix!

    Great conversation, ladies!  Really resonated with a lot of my own creative life in many ways… While creative lives are extremely diverse, we do share many common threads.  Love what Amy said about finding one’s own voice rather than trying to “be” what somebody else is.  There is SO much of that out there now!

    I loved what she said about personal style.  Don’t force a style; being authentic is effortless. It’s absolutely true.
