We had the chance to chat with Aileen and learn a little more about her process. Check out our interview below for more on the artist behind Girl by Aileen!
Donations for Katie: Thanks for chatting with us! First, why don't you tell us a little about yourself.
Aileen: I am a mother of 3 boys and one more boy in the oven. My husband and I love creativity and cannot get enough of it. I wish I had more hours in the day to be creative as I work full time as well. As a child I remember my mother being very creative with sewing and so I inherited the talent from her.
DfK: How did you get started in your craft?
A: Two years ago my sister in law and I went to a craft show and I loved the idea of homemade. I said to her next year you and I will be part of this event and that's where it all started.
DfK: What do you love most about your work?
A: I am a fabric addict. I love to shop for new fabrics.
DfK: Where do you get your inspiration?
A: I am inspired by colors and designs. So many fabrics and ideas that motivate me. I can't wait to see the finish product so once I start I can't put it down.
DfK: What made you decide to support Katie through this auction?
A: My X husband has terminal cancer and watching him struggle with his health, time, money, it's devastating. He is a fighter and still goes to work full time. He is an inspiration to me. It's unfair for any human being to endure this disease. I can't imagine being in their shoes and truly admire their strength and determination to live.
DfK: Anything you'd like to say to Katie directly?
A: Hi Katie! It is my pleasure to be part of this event. I wish you the best and will have you in my prayers. Keep up the good fight. God bless.
