Interview with Jibibuts Artist :: Anna Chambers

 

How did you become involved with the Artist Collection for Jibibuts?

They asked, I said yes!  Because I really love their toys to begin with it was easy.

What is the concept behind the artwork you created for the Jibibuts?

When I found out I would be getting the Moli wooden Jibibut platform I was excited since the middle parts spin around.  I wanted to create a mix n’ match sort of toy that can be flipped.

Which other artist’s Jibibut is your favorite in this series?
Well I really love them all. But if I had to choose, I’ll say the Peskimo one is really cute!

I know you create a lot of plush work. What is the appeal of plush creatures as a medium for your art?

The appeal of plush for me is that I love to sew.  It’s just another creative outlet for me.

Do you have any exciting new projects you can tell us about?

I do have some projects in the works for this year, but I can never say anything till its actually done and out in the world.  Expect more plush!

Thanks, Anna!
