Dmytro and Iuliia from DreamPapercut
1. Let us know a bit about yourself
Our names are Dmytro and Iuliia and we live in Ukraine. We are fond of different kinds of sports, like traveling and trying to dabble in painting. This year we have graduated from the economic university and now dedicate all our time and energy to grow in paper cutting and refine our shop. Our story begins from childhood, while children we took part in creative classes such as painting, drawing and paper craft. Growing up and studying at university we didn’t pay proper attention to creativity, but it has always lived in our hearts.
2. What do you make?
Our craft is creating hand-cut paper silhouettes, all from a single sheet of paper where every piece is interconnected.
Once, we created a greeting card with hand-cut elements for our friend’s birthday. It was the first step in realizing how much creativity occupies an important place in our lives. After that, we took interest in paper cutting art and started creating paper cut silhouettes. Then we decided to create our DreamPapercut shop on Etsy http://www.etsy.com/shop/DreamPapercut and share our art with other people.
3. Where do you find inspiration?
All of our works are made with love and soul. Each piece is inspired by nature, life and people who like our works. Our inspiration often comes when we go for walks in parks or the forests just to enjoy the nature surrounding us. Often we meet with our friends to help us relax and get new energy to create new original works.
4. How long has your Etsy shop been open?
We opened our shop on Etsy 8 month ago.
5. Do you still have time to make crafts for pleasure while running your online business?
There is no difference between making crafts for our customers or for us and our friends because we get the same pleasure in both ways.
6. What inpired you to move your art into an online business?
We love creativity and handmade items, when you look at them you can feel the inner world of the person who has created them. This is what encouraged us to share our own handmade items with others.
7. What are your future goals for your shop, and do you have a plan for achieving them?
The main our goal is to make more and more people happier through our works and pass a little part of our love and soul. We want to create more beautiful and intricate paper cuts and get more customers and followers of our art.
