For this week's episode of the Made to Order Podcast, I interviewed Canadian book artist Debra Frances.
Debra first discovered making books by helping her daughter with a school project over a decade ago. The process intrigued her and slowly but surely became a passion. Fast forward a handful of years and a whole lot of learning and Debra has turned that passion into a small business.
Have a listen to the episode to hear Debra's story!
As always, be sure to check out her work and spread the word about Debra's art by following the links below:

10: Life of a Paintbrush
24:14Today on the podcast I interviewed Sherstin Schwartz, the artist behind lifeofapaintbrush.com.Sherstin creates what she calls 'alien floral' designs out of polymer clay. Sherstin combined her unique combination of experience creating floral designs with her love of UFO's to arrive at this idea. The result resembles a plant scene from another world.
