"I like illustrating my everyday life - my kitchen, my cat, beautiful flowers, cities that I've been to or places that I'd love to visit," she says, "Since I just had my little daughter, she became my biggest influence... She inspires me to design and draw for her, to find those old children's books I grew up with and re-read them. She makes me sing for her and remember those old songs my mom used to sing for me and I just can't wait to see what fun we're going to have when she gets older!"
Dinara had been wanting to create the Cityscape tape for a while. She likes the endless possibilities of decorative packing tape.
"You can decorate pretty much anything with a cute tape pattern - starting from pencil jars to picture frames, mirrors, recycled totes and even bedroom walls," she says, "I use this tape to decorate parcels for my Etsy shoppers - it is always more exciting when you receive in mail a package that is nicely wrapped and decorated," she adds.
