About akiokapi

Sales 1,315
On Etsy since 2010

An outlet for all this nervous energy. . .

I just love to make things. It's as simple as that. I love fun patterns, wonderful textures and creating things that solve problems that used to get under my skin.

I come from a long line of off-the-wall artists, writers, tailors and chefs, and although I have a day job as a professional designer, once I punch the proverbial clock, it's not like the brain just turns off, it just redirects towards things that are more tactile, more organic, a little more. . . well, FREE.

Join me, challenge me, come along for the ride! Let's connect and have a bit of fun making things a little less expected, a little less mundane. And if you happen to have a little caffeine with you, well, I'll bring the cookies.
