An Interview with Heather Klinger of Klinger Creative

Why do you craft/make? How did you learn?

I have always loved to craft and make things. It’s so natural to me. I’ve been drawing and painting from as early as I can remember. I learned a lot on my own, but developed my skills, especially my graphic design skills, at Sacramento City College and Sacramento State.

What is your favorite product or piece you’ve made lately?

I’m really in love with my new holiday card collection. They are more detailed and colorful than last year and I spent a lot of time on the illustrations. The two designs featuring dogs are my favorites.

What sorts of things are inspiring you right now? Where do you look for inspiration?

I do a lot of research and I love seeing examples of vintage design and illustration, old packaging and labels, signage, old cookbooks, magazines, etc. I find things online as well as in thrift stores and shops.

Are you bringing/selling anything special at the craft fair?

I am selling lots of greeting cards that I designed.

Favorite holiday cookie?

Gingerbread, extra spicy!

Favorite holiday song?

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

All I want for Christmas is…?

Fair trade coffee beans
