Rimjhim Garg

Hi, My name is Rimjhim..I am a business analyst by profession and crafter by choice. Crafting and painting is just like a meditation for me. I am into arts since my childhood. But then came into IT sector and decided to pursue my hobby along with it. I came back to painting first. After a gap of many years and then got interested in crafting. I am basically into wood works, decoupage and painting. Though, I don’t limit myself to this. I keep experimenting with mixed media and scrapbooking too.

Rupa Swaminathan and Tanvi Shah are my biggest inspiration. They are like my motivating factor. I learn a lot from them.

While I have a job of 9-6, I somehow manage to take out time for my crafting. So, I have a fixed routine- 9-6 office, 6:30-7:30 aerobics/badminton and then 8-12 my crafting.. I like to keep myself busy..LOL..

I came across Zibica last year. I felt it’s an amazing initiative where all the crafters get a chance to showcase their work and earn at the same time. I am selling nameplates, dreamcatchers etc on Zibica.

Anita Orlene

Hi, I’m Anita Orlene, a civil engineer and craftsperson. Having a mother and grandmothers who were talented crafts-persons, it was only natural that I followed in their footsteps.

While i have always pursed crafty activities it was only when my daughter was born, and I found the clothes in the market were not to my liking that i started sewing her clothes and later crocheting and knitting for her. As she grew, I started making soft toys too.

Now that the kids have grown, and my interest in my hobbies has not lessened I have started selling what I make. I enjoy sewing, embroidery, crochet, knitting, paper-craft, jewellery making, felt crafts (to list a few). I also free-lance as a 3D visualizer for architects.

Vinita Bajla

Hello, all!

2016-03-20 17.21.07

I am Vinita Bajla from Bangalore. I have been crafting passionately for more than two years. My forte is Decoupage. This is an ancient technique by which slivers of paper are stuck on wood, glass, plastic, etc and then lacquered with many coats for a couple of days. It is a very laborious yet an interesting art. The final result seems like the surface has been painted. Decoupage can be done on home décor items like trays, birdhouses, drawers, glass bottles, hangers, paper weights, pen-stands, cutlery stand, caddy boxes, watch boxes, jewellery boxes, office stationery and many more.

I learnt Decoupage two years back and instantly fell in love with the art. I found it interesting that different papers like cardstock, wrapping paper, newspaper, tissue-paper etc work differently on different surfaces. I thoroughly enjoy hand painting, stencilling, stamping on my decoupage products. Every time when I fall in love with my own products, I know my client is going to love them too.

My other passion is paper craft like envelopes, invites, etc for all occasions.I love customizing an order for a valued client and believe in giving joy to the person who receives it. I ensure high quality and good finishing in all products.

“To me art is a therapy and Gulmohar Galore is about fulfilling little dreams of people”

Hi, I’m Chan Siva, a Chennai based Artist. I paint on all subjects of paintings from traditional to modern art, but I mainly work on Color theory artworks.

I had interest in Art since my childhood but what influenced me to pursue Art are Color theory techniques which gave a lively and vibrant feel, and million possibilities to show my creativity, feelings, and emotions through art. My first exhibit was in QCC art gallery in New York, 2011 which gave me confidence to pursue Art further. Since then done one solo exhibit in USA and few group exhibits in India. My works mainly revolves around color theory techniques to express the emotions, feelings and the inner feelings of the subject of my painting. Though I’m familiar with most methods, I mainly work on Acrylic paintings.

Vaishali Khandwala

  IMG_0053

Hello, I am Vaishali Khandwala from Mumbai. I always had an affinity to create things with my own hands. This creative inclination took me to study architecture and I freelanced as an interior designer for quite some time. Composing forms and elements together comes naturally to me and I love working in three dimension, with various materials, objects and techniques.  Since 2011, I am enjoying putting all this together through crafting. I hand make products and design craft workshops.

When working with children or making something for children, I use variety of materials and focus on recycling. This helps children to learn crafting from objects that are easily available and inexpensive….something what I enjoyed as a child…Best out of Waste.

Exploring the art of decoupage has been very fulfilling for me. Using this art, I create home décor products, office products and customize gifts for special occasions. Multipurpose boxes, trays, tissue boxes, coasters, magnets, card holders, photo frames, pen holders, wooden momentos, bookmarks are some of the decoupage products, that I have been making. The products are not only beautiful with fine finish, but they have utility too. Hence they are a treasured memory for both the giver and the receiver.

Crafting is a journey for me. I call it Craft Express….where I express myself through craft.  My creative growth happens every single day….it may be working on a new requirement of a customer, or exploring a new idea.

Happy Crafting from Craft Express…..Create, Express, Enjoy !!!!

 Zibica shop is a wonderful space of handcrafted goodies.

Khushboo

I am khushboo  hailing from a modest family with a passion for craft work . My journey with craft items has been amazing . From making them to visiting different craft fairs hosted in different cities as well have judged few craft competitions in my hometown primary schools. my affair with craft is long and soothing, it gives me peace of mind as every strand of components is gathered together that unfolds into a new item . Each item with a story of its own.

From my school days I had knack for more and more creative craft ideas but due to studies could not get through it . This little craving got one more chance whilst studying in college and having ample time for myself. I started by making birthday cards, paintings and sketches , etc for my friends . Then I realized I could do much more beyond it . Eventually , I got familiar with the art of making dreamcatchers. I still remember my first dreamcatcher was a simple yet appealing. I started gifting dreamcatchers on several  occasions to my friends and they highly appreciated it as it was a new item added to gift list. The designs are creative and each one is unique in terms of color and other contents put together for a Dream catcher. It would be a pleasure for me if given an opportunity to make more dreamcatchers by exploring my creativity and thought. My journey with craft has been vibrant and has given me a quite basic experience and knowledge regarding customers needs , need trends which has continuous source of support to make more and more dream catchers.

Vishakha Agarwal

DSC_0030-001

I, Vishakha Agarwal, an engineering student, from KIIT University, Bhubaneswar. I am a huge fan of wearing t-shirts with cute cartoons and funny quotes. But whenever I went out shopping for T-shirts, all I got was same old boring designs and quotes, which really pissed me off. Then an idea struck my mind, why can’t I paint a plain t-shirt on my own according to my choice of design. So, I started with painting t-shirts for my friends and family with cartoons that match them the best and gifted them to see whether they like my painting. With their positive response, I was very excited to paint t-shirts for everybody who asked for.

When I came to know about Zibica, I found a platform to sell my hand painted t-shirts online and earn some extra money. I was very happy when I received my first order .Thank you so much Zibica 
