My name is Tania Petrova and I am the designer and owner behind ARTBEDDING brand. And this is my short story....
My total love for design started by incident :) I saw an open CorelDraw program 12 years ago. This led to a wedding and a passion that I follow since then. I believe each one of us has this creative need that we use in different areas of our lives. For some it is cooking, for some it is gardening and for me it was many different ways of expressing this urge to create, express and share it with others.
I started with a career in Marketing, went all the way to Marketing Manager, then I was hired as an Event Manager in International company. At one point I even had my own Advertising agency :) I went to live in UK and worked with great Brand Identity specialists, organized International Exhibitions and this is how I learned the production process from a simple leaflet to building exhibition stands. I was so fascinated by the complete process from an idea to the perfect finished product. I incorporated all I have learned when I started my first company in Uk back in 2008.
I started with selling on Ebay and it was a success. But there was something missing. I was just selling stuff and the money I was earning were not enough to feel a real satisfction of the job, the money and what I have acomplished so far. Not really satisfied with what I was doing for a living, I soon felt bored. So I started with crafting, making things that I could sell. Of course by simple accident and as a hobbie. I started drawing with crystals and making jewellery in my small main street boutique.
ARTBEDDING brand and concept is my latest passion, it was established in November 2014 out of curiosity just to see if there is an interest in my designs and products. I started the way many of as does - ETSY :) Simple, easy, no special skills required. And NOW .... Now it is my main business and my family is involved in it also. It is what I do for a living. Now the company is established as a family run business that is at last challenging and also satisfying. And it is growing every minute. My only regret is that I do not have the time to show, design, make and reserch more of what is in my head.
The response I get from you is great and I feel supported by so many wonderful clients, some of whom becane long term contacts and friends. I strongly believe that it is not me that attracted your attention among all others in this huge poll of products on Internet universe. For me it was the love and spark of me that I embedd in my products. I simply wanted to create something that is practical, part of your everyday life, but at the same time to have a deeper meaning. To have this spiritual spice to it. To has a special meaning to you that reasonates with your soul as much as the fashion trends and your personality.
I love communicationg with clients and make custom designs. Having this personal approach makes a difference in the way I feel while I make new designs. Most of them were created because someone asked for it. My art is a reflection of your imagination and needs as much as mine. And I truly enjoy and appreciate this.
Thank you for being here!
Thank you for sharing my passion!
