Balloon artists are a funny breed. We're equal parts six-year old, engineer, and performance artist! We watch Saturday morning cartoons, and claim it's research!
My mother always told to go with what I was good at — but I don't think she meant for me to become an airhead!
People often ask me how I got started making balloons. I was given a how-to book for my birthday one year, and devoured the contents. 20+ years, and an endless amount of practice later, I'm still creating balloons for fun!
I'm also a regular at the Old Strathcona Farmer's Market.
